Beef and Broccoli Brown Rice Bowl

Put down that takeout menu! This healthy spin on beef and broccoli will leave you feeling full and guilt-free. Thin bite-size pieces of flank steak are much easier to eat than long strips, so cut your flank steak in half lengthwise (with the grain) before thinly slicing it crosswise (against the grain).  Get the recipe: Beef and Broccoli Brown Rice Bowl
