Reviewed beef with broccoli

Jul 21, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is by far the best beef with broccoli that I have ever had. I think it's even better than what you get in restaurants. I followed the recipe exactly, used the same amount of low sodium soy sauce as stated and it was not too salty at all. Definitely a keeper and I will making it often!!
