I love Chinese food. It is some of my favorite food on the planet. In fact, one of my most favorite dishes is beef and broccoli stir fry. A couple of years ago I found a crockpot recipe (you can read that here), but it takes like 4 hours to make. Just the other day, I found a recipe that I tweaked a little and now — I can make my beef and broccoli stir fry in 15 minutes.

Beef and Broccoli StirFry

The trick to making this a 15 minute meal is how thin you get your beef shaved. Now for me, I usually do this myself, but it takes an extra 20 minutes or so to do that, so to cut down on the time, I have my meat guy at the store shave it for me really thin. By doing this, it will cut down on the cook time to a mere 3-4 minutes.
