Beef with Broccoli

As I have said before we love all forms of Chinese cuisine in this house. I am always on the look out for new yummy recipes to try. I found a recipe for a broccoli side dish that said you could add chicken or shrimp to it and make it the main dish. It looked really yummy. I highly adapted the recipe just because I like to do that and came up with a yummy main course. If you need a new Chinese recipe give this baby a try. So yummy!!!
Beef With Broccoli
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 T garlic
9 cup broccoli, cut into bite size pieces
1 T sesame oil
2 cans chicken broth
3/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup Thai sweet chili sauce
5 1/2 T. Sesame oil
5 1/2 T. cornstarch
Sriracha Sauce to taste(depending on how spicy you like it)
Brown the beef in a large skillet. Drain the grease well and set the meat aside. Then add the 1 T. sesame oil, broccoli, onion and garlic to the skillet and cook until veggies are crisp tender. In a small bowl whisk all the sauce ingredients together. Pour over the broccoli, add the beef back in and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for 10-20 minutes or until the sauce is thickened and the veggies reach your desired tenderness. It you like more of a bite to your broccoli simmer only 10 minutes if you like it soft simmer it longer. Serve over Rice.
This can feed 8-10 people so cut the recipe in half if you don't want that much!!!
 If you want an all veggie dish them don't add the beef- just use more 
 broccoli or add another veggie with it like bell peppers or cauliflower
You can also do this with chicken or shrimp.
