My biggest problem with healthy eating has always been getting enough veggies. I love every type of protein, but cooked vegetables are usually boring at best. This is why I am always looking for ways to make my veggies more interesting.
The genius of this dish is that you cook the broccoli in the marinade from the steak, which means that everything taste like meat 😀 (not quite, but you get the idea). The broccoli stays almost raw, but it absorbs a ton of flavor from the marinade. When you put everything on top of the rice, you get a meal that is perfect for a healthy fitness lifestyle, and where the steak and marinade flavor is infused in every bite.
You can use this method with any kind of vegetable that only needs 2-4 min in the pan, as long as they don’t have a very strong own flavor (I tried using cauliflower and didn’t like it very much).
A good trick to making this even more delicious is to cook the rice in chicken stock and ground turmeric. I always cook rice this way, because it adds a lot of flavor and gives the rice a great yellow color.
