Shanghai Beef

These dishes are really good and very filling! The video recipe is similar to the Panda Express Shanghai Angus Steak. The second recipe is marinated sirloin steak with broccoli and spiralized broccoli noodles in a delicious hoisin sauce. Instead of throwing out those broccoli stems, you can spiralize them and use them in place of noodles in dishes like this easy Asian stir fry for a low-carb alternative to noodles.
