Thursday – Beef and Broccoli
Thursday’s dinner is beef and broccoli. This is a simple, yet delicious, meal that can be made in under 30 minutes. You’ll need:

-1/4 cup of brown sugar

Next, add the broccoli to the pan and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until it is slightly softened. Then, add the soy sauce, brown sugar, and garlic to the pan and stir to combine.
