Who needs take-out? This beef and broccoli dish from the duo behind Boston restaurant Myers + Chang is easy and delicious. The thin strips of marinated beef and Chinese broccoli are stir fried with onions and tossed with a peppery sauce with plenty of ginger, garlic, and scallions, plus flat, chewy rice noodles to catch all the delicious Fun Sauce. If you’re vegetarian, it’s also great with tofu in place of the beef, and since the sauce is already vegan, there’s no need to change anything else. Just substitute 14 to 16 ounces firm tofu, cut into 1-inch cubes, skip the marinating step, and proceed with the stir-fry directions with the tofu cubes in place of the beef, and add all the Fun Sauce at the end.
