Beef and Broccoli

While takeout is a truly magical (and often necessary) invention, it certainly impacts the wallet and the waistline.  So, I’ve recently begun playing around with some of my favorite take home dishes at home.  I went went with this recipe as the base and added some stir fry veggies such as water chestnuts, and baby corn for a bit more texture.

There are so many variations on this classic dish, but this one was straightforward, flavorful, and filling! What other takeout at home favorites do you enjoy or suggest I try?
