Any quick meal is a good meal in my dictionary. This beef with broccoli is a very quick cooking meal with just a handful of ingredients. Its very adaptable as you can add onions, peppers or mushroom to your preferences. If I am using tortilla wraps to serve with it, I skip broccoli and add onions, peppers and mushrooms. Add all the vegetables if serving with rice. The spices being used are fajita combination.
Beef 1 lbs Cut in thin long strips
Garlic 2 cloves minced
Salt to taste
Smoked paprika 1 tsp

Once the beef no longer looks pink, take it out of the pan and sprinkle lime juice.
Add broccoli florets to the pan and sprinkle some salt on it.
