Can beef be healthy? Yes it can be and this recipe shows you exactly how you can eat beef and not freak out the next time you are on the weighing machine. Cooking beef with ginger is not a very common combination and yet it stimulates your taste buds without increasing your waist size.

    In small bowl, combine sauce ingredients.
  4. 4In another small bowl, place 1-2 Tbsp. water and broccoli florets. Cover with towel and steam in microwave 2-3 minutes until just tender. Set aside.
  5. 5Reheat wok or large skillet, then add remaining 1 Tbsp. oil. When hot, add garlic, ginger, and green onions. Cook for 20 seconds, then add bean sprouts, broccoli, and rice wine. Cook 1-2 minutes, then add sauce and combine.
