Beef and Broccoli

So, I was going to do a stir fry for dinner but when it came down to it, I didn't get the snap peas I wanted for it because they were too much $ so I just wasn't in the mood for stir fry without them. So, I whipped this together hoping it would resemble some sort of beef and broccoli we'd had in the past, and to our surprise (and delight), it did!

1/2 lb of beef strips for stir fry (2.25)
1/4 onion cut up into pieces (.10)
1/4 broccoli head (.40)
1 can cream of mushroom (.54)
2 tbs soy sauce (.10)
1 tbs sugar (.03)
1/2 cup water (free)
2 tbs olive oil (.05)
1 cup of brown rice (.50)

*Cook your one cup of rice while doing the rest of this. I use a rice cooker but you can easily cook it on the stove top. 1 cup of rice, 2 cups of water, let it sit on medium heat on the stovetop until rice has soaked in all of the water. Easy as pie!

Step 1:
Heat 1 tbs of olive oil and brown your meat and onions in it.
Step 2:
Toss in the broccoli and stir for a couple of minutes.
Step 3:
Add the rest of your wet ingredients (cream of mush, soy sauce, olive oil, sugar, water) and let it simmer for about 15 minutes.
Step 4: Serve on top of rice. Enjoy!
Total cost of meal: $3.97
