Let's face it: whenever you order beef and broccoli from your local Chinese restaurant, the beef is the part you want the most, and it always feels like there's never enough. Mongolian Steak and Broccoli ensures everyone gets their fill of marvelous meat without missing on that sweet, tangy sauce. Each steak is coated in a glaze infused with smoky brown sugar, fragrant garlic, and full-bodied ketchup before being grilled to your preferred level of doneness. Mongolian Steak and Broccoli even provides tender, garden-fresh broccoli florets as a refreshing side. This speedy and special dinner may just be what you turn to instead of a take-out menu!
