Beef & Broccoli 1 Recipe
1/2 lb Boneless beef*
1 tbsp Oyster sauce**
2 tsp Rice wine**
1/2 tsp Brown sugar**
2 tsp Cornstarch**
1 lb Broccoli, chopped
2 TS RICE WINE
1/2 TS BROWN SUGAR
1 T CORNSTARCH DISSOLVED IN
2 TB WATER
3 tbsp Peanut oil
2 Slices ginger, minced
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 cup Water
2 tsp Sesame oil
*(Flank steak, top sirloin, or tenderloin), sliced across grain into
thin s **(combine all marinade ingredients in a bowl) ***(combine all
seasoning sauce ingredients in a cup) Thoroughly mix beef with
marinade and marinate for 30 minutes. Heat wok over highest heat,
when hot, swirl in 2 Tblsp peanut oil.
Add ginger and salt and toss a few seconds. Add broccoli and
stirfry one minute, then add water, turn heat to med-high, cover, and
steam until crisp tender.
Uncover and turn heat to high, stir frying until water is evaporated.
Remove broccoli and reserve. Reheat same wok (without rinsing) and,
when hot, add remaining peanut oil. Add beef slices and stirfry until
lightly browned but not cooked through. Do not stirfry too
vigorously or meat will not brown, it is better to press slices
against sides of wok to sear. Add broccoli to wok and toss. When
hot, stir in seasoning sauce and stir until sauce thickens (it's a
good idea to whisk the sauce in the cup just before you hurl it into
the wok). Turn onto a platter and drizzle sesame oil over the top.
The sugar in the marinade and seasoning sauce acts as a floor
enhancer rather than a sweetener. I hope you enjoy this recipe.

The problems associated with reduced carb diets
Its extremely popular, but it is really safe for you?
Scientific studies over recent years have proved that high consumption of animal fat causes greater probability of cancer, heart problems and other serious illnesses.
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although not totally impossible) for vegetarians to take up a reduced carb diet.
Lycopene rich foods
(includes grapefruit, red bell peppers and baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a naturally occurring coloring agent and part of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is the agent responsible for the deep red colour of a good number of natural foods.
Usefully, unlike numerous vitamins, lycopene is not damaged during the cooking process, but is observably made more effective by going through the cooking process.
Its most valuable advantage is that it serves as an antioxidant and appears to be of use in the battle to reduce the probabilty of contracting cancer.
This useful phytochemical is the most efficacious eliminator of singlet oxygen, which is connected with aging of the skin. It's also thought by many researchers to prevent the development of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
