Thai Steak and Broccoli Stir Fry

Thursday Menu – Thai Steak and Broccoli Stir Fry, Rice
Farm Share Food – Broccoli, Garlic, Basil
This recipe originally called for Green Beans, which I was hoping to get this week, but we did not get.  I was excited to try the recipe so I substituted the Broccoli we got for the Green Beans.  This was a tasty and quick meal to prepare.

1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 pound skirt steak, cut against the grain into thin strips
1 head of broccoli, cut into small florets and thinly sliced stalk
4 tablespoons minced peeled fresh ginger
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fish sauce
1 cup fresh basil leaves, torn if large
2 cups cooked rice, for serving
In a wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium high.  Add steak and cook until browned, 4 minutes.  Transfer steak to a plate and reserve.  Add broccoli stalk slices, ginger, and garlic.  Cook until stalks begin to become tender.  Add florets and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.  Return beef to the pan along with fish sauce and basil.  Cook 1 minute.  Serve with rice.
NOTE: Soy Sauce can be substituted for Fish Sauce.  No basil in the share this week, but I had plenty frozen in the freezer and it worked great for a recipe like this.
