This is another great find from Molly Fogleman. While the original recipe from The Cozy Apron intends this as a breakfast dish, Molly served this over grits for a satisfying dinner meal. As always, visit the original recipe site for more detailed instructions and pictures!

I discovered this marinade when I was on vacation in Naples, FL visiting my sister-in-law. We made steak kabobs and used this marinade. It definitely lived up to its name – “Best Steak Marinade in Existence” – Allrecipes for the win once again.

This recipe is one of only a few that was passed down from my Grandma Shaw. She passed away before I was born, but if the rest of her cooking was anything like this recipe, she was a good cook. This is just the basic recipe, but pretty much any vegetable can be added – mushrooms, water chestnuts, snow peas, carrots, broccoli – would all be delicious.

1/2 cup water, plus
2 tablespoons water, divided
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
4 cups broccoli florets
1 small onion, cut into wedges
1/3 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground ginger
hot cooked rice
In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons cornstarch, 2 tablespoons water and garlic powder until smooth. Add beef and toss. In a large skillet or wok over medium high heat, stir-fry beef in 1 tablespoon oil until beef reaches desired doneness; remove and keep warm. Stir-fry broccoli and onion in remaining oil for 4-5 minutes. Return beef to pan. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger and remaining cornstarch and water until smooth; add to the pan. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Serve over rice.

I haven’t made these meatballs in quite a long time, since we’ve stopped eating as much meat. But they are absolutely delicious! Also have not tried them with turkey but I’m sure you could. These are from my sister-in-law’s mom.
