I’ve got a Broccoli Beef aficionado in the house and I used to buy him those microwave meals you get in the freezer aisle of the grocery store to satisfy his Panda Express need.  But now I have this quick and easy Broccoli Beef Udon Noodles recipe that the whole family enjoys.  It is now a regular part of our meal rotation.

Flank steak is not that cheap, but it’s a must for this recipe so that you get tender and succulent pieces of beef.  It’s worth it to splurge on.  (NOTE:  If you partially freeze the steak, you can use your food processor slicer attachment to quickly slice the meat thin.  Either that or the electric knife.)

We used Japanese Udon Noodles, but you can substitute Lo Mein egg noodles or spaghetti.
