Easy Shrimp and Broccoli Stir Fry

Tractor Supply

During the cold winter months, I have been craving shrimp and broccoli. I love the sweet and tangy flavors that would melt into your mouth. I recalled how easier it was to place a phone order from one of the local Chinese restaurants when I lived in New York City.

Please don’t get me wrong, I love living out here in a cabin in the woods. It’s that the restaurants out here are too far away, and they don’t deliver food.

I decided to create my version of shrimp and broccoli. With a little bit of experimentation, I found the right combination of simple ingredients. So far, I have been pleased with the results. This recipe is easy and brings back all the flavors of an elegant Chinese restaurant.

Enjoy!

I am enjoying egg rolls from Feel Good Foods as a side dish. They are gluten free and very delicious!
