Like almost everyone, I am always on the lookout for easy weeknight meals that come together in less than 30 minutes. Plus they need to be something that everyone will eat because no one has time to make more than one dinner. Enter this amazing Beef and Broccoli Fried Rice. It combines the best flavors of Beef and Broccoli with fried rice - delish! Plus it is really easy to make. And it uses ground beef, which is a lot more forgiving and affordable than the traditional sirloin steak used in beef and broccoli.
So let's talk about this dish. It starts with the ground beef, which is browned with some garlic, ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil so we can start to build flavor. Then the broccoli is added and cooked until it is just tender crisp. Be careful not to overcook the broccoli as you want it to have some texture and crunch.
Next up is the rice. You are going to use leftover cooked brown rice or white rice, whatever you prefer. If you don't have an cooked rice, you can buy pre-cooked frozen rice. Just cook it less time than the package recommendations so it is just heated through and is close to room temperature. The rice is cooked with some additional soy sauce and sesame oil to continue deepening the flavor. Then all that's left to do is scramble a couple of eggs, right in the pan with the rice, and add the sauce.
