The BEST Beef and Broccoli (and carrots and celery) Stir-Fry



One of my favorite weeknight dinners to cook is an Asian stir-fry, I have been making this cashew chicken stir-fry for a few years now and it is always a hit.  I’ve been wanting to experiment with a beef version for a while now and settled on creating a recipe using beef sirloin.  A ton of recipes I read used skirt or flank steak (so you could definitely sub that), but I thought top sirloin, pounded thin, would be the optimal selection and man did this recipe turn out DELICIOUS.

I also strayed from the typical beef and broccoli and added thin sliced carrots and celery to this dish, the more vegetables the better, right?
