What cut of meat is used for beef and broccoli?
Typically, flank steak is used for tender beef and broccoli. It’s inexpensive and widely available. You could also use flat iron steak.
How do you blanch broccoli?
This recipe calls for blanched broccoli. Blanching is an easy way to quickly cook vegetables.
Bring a big pot of water to boil. Drop the florets into the water and cook for two to three minutes until bright green and crisp-tender. Immediately drain in a colander and put in an ice bath (a large bowl filled with ice water), which will stop the cooking process. Once the broccoli is cool, drain in the colander again.
- Use flat iron steak instead of flank steak.
- Swap the steak for chicken, or for a vegetarian version, use extra firm tofu.
