Servings: 4 Prep 20 mins Cook 15 mins


  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chinese five-spice
  • 3/4 pound flank steak, cut against the grain into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 pound broccolini, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 2 sweet red peppers, seeds removed and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1 sweet onion, peeled, halved and cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 pound shelled edamame
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

Make It

1. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together broth and cornstarch. Add soy sauce, ketchup and five-spice.

2. If prepping ahead, pour broth mixture into ziptop bag and sliced steak into a second ziptop bag. Place broccolini, peppers, onion and garlic into another ziptop bag. Refrigerate up to 2 days.

3. To prepare, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add sliced steak and stir-fry 3 minutes per side. Remove to a plate.

4. Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet; add broccolini, peppers, onion and garlic. Stir-fry 7 to 8 minutes or until vegetables are crisp-tender.

5. Add broth mixture and simmer 1 minute, until thickened. Stir in edamame, steak and any accumulated juices. Heat through.

6. Serve with cooked rice.


Take a Dip:
  • Edamame is high in fiber, low in fat and 1/2 cup provides 17% of your recommended daily allowance of protein. In the bowl of a food processor, combine 1 lb frozen, thawed, shelled edamame, 1 tsp onion salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp hot sauce; process until smooth. With processor running, drizzle in 1/4 cup each olive oil and water. Serve with whole-grain crackers.
