“This recipe is from my roommate in college. She was from Hawaii and of Japanese descent. This beef and broccoli is in the Japanese style, dark and flavorful with just the lightest coating of slightly sticky sauce. If you prefer the Chinese style with lots of mild, creamy gravy, try Chinese Beef With Broccoli, by Pneuma.”
