A zesty vegetable stir-fry is a delight for the eyes as well as the taste buds. No time to cook? No worries! Busy weeknights are no match for this beef and broccoli stir-fry. So put away that takeout menu and make weeknight dinner even easier by using a pre-cut beef for stir-fry, unless you already have some lean beef on hand. Toss in fresh broccoli, bean sprouts, and freshly minced ginger for a distinct Asian flavor.
