Best Beef for Kung Pao Broccoli Beef
Beef sirloin tips are the best choice for a flavorful stir fry dish. Sirloin is a leaner cut of steak with bold, beefy flavors that pair perfectly with the slightly sweet sauce and savory vegetable. Omaha Steaks beef sirloin tips are recipe ready and perfectly packaged in 1-lb portions.
Tip: If you forget to defrost the meat the night before, use the quick-thaw method. Simply fill a bowl with cold water and submerge the vacuum-sealed beef tips until they are fully defrosted, usually 30 minutes or less.
How to Make Kung Pao Broccoli Beef
Cook the sirloin tips, sauce, and broccoli separately, and then combine to serve. Start by sautéing your steak tips over medium-high heat until browned and then set aside. Make the sauce in the same pan while cooking the broccoli in the microwave following the directions below. When the sauce is reduced by 2/3, add the sirloin tips and broccoli, and coat with the sauce. Serve over rice for an incredibly easy and delicious dish that is better than takeout.
