A Recipe from Janice’s Kitchen Corner – Beef and Broccoli with Wine!

This is the 11th recipe that I am sharing on the cooking segment of my blog. I hope you have been enjoying it so far.

Today I want to share an easy and tasty recipe using left over roast beef or steak. I hate to throw anything away and also do not like to freeze leftover beef. It never tastes the same after freezing. I call this recipe Beef and Broccoli with Wine.

Here are the other recipes I have featured in the previous posts: Beef and Broccoli with Wine, Zucchini BreadZucchini Italiano, Grapenut Custard, Spinach Pita PizzaPortuguese Seafood StewMarinated Mushrooms, Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Chicken Marsala, and Rice Paper Veggie Shrimp Wraps. In the past I have also shared recipes for Portuguese Bisquits and Drunken Chicken.

This is a quick recipe but don’t tell your family how easy it is. It will looked like you slaved over the stove. They will love it too!

Leftover medium rare beef and minced garlic
Arrowroot and Gravy Master and egg noodles
Sautéed onions and garlic
Red wine
Sauteed Beef, onions and garlic


  1. Leftover steak or roast beef (l had roast beef – several slices leftover for this.)
  2. 1-2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive oil (EEOO)
  3. Chopped onions (2 Tbs)
  4. 1-2 cloves garlic pressed
  5. Bunch of broccoli
  6. Sliced mushrooms
  7. 1 cup Red wine (burgundy or whatever you have on hand)
  8. 1-2 Tbs Arrowroot (thickener like flour but less starchy and lower in calories)
  9. 1 tsp of Gravy Master (for browning liquid)
  10. Salt & pepper (only if you didn’t heavily season your beef previously)


  1. Sauté onions and garlic in EEOO in frying pan
  2. Add raw broccoli and sauté until slightly cooked (I like a little bite to my broccoli.)
  3. Add beef cut up in medallions sized pieces
  4. Add mushrooms
  5. Saute meat and broccoli together until tender (I used med rare roast beef and cooked it almost well done) (You can precook broccoli and add at the end)
  6. Add Red wine
  7. Add Arrowroot mixed into a 1/4 cup of water to the pan and combine until thickened
  8. Add a little more water if it gets too thick or more wine which I did!
  9. Simmer together to combine flavors
  10. Serve over egg noodles or rice
  11. Enjoy!
