"My first memories of cooking involve being in the kitchen with my grandmother when I was very small, 5 or 6, watching her make biscuits. My grandparents had a dairy farm about an hour away from our suburban home, and I got to go stay with her during the summer and on weekends. I thought I was cooking, because that’s how she made me feel, but I’m sure I was anything but helpful in truth. What I remember is an enormous bowl and lots of flour, and her energy and pleasure in being in her kitchen, working and creating, keeping me happy, and making something for us to enjoy. I didn’t learn a thing about how to make biscuits (except that making a mess with flour is part of the deal), but I learned that the kitchen is a good, fun, busy place, and that it’s fun to cook with and for people you love."

Light Wheat

If only there existed a beer that could complement a stir fry...wait there is one! Atlanta's Second Self Thai Wheat featuring ginger and lemongrass is an excellent beer to pair with any Asian dish. Light and refreshing, it won't detract from the beef and broccoli.

Second Self Thai Wheat

Pinot Noir - Willamette Valley, OR

The sweet, woodsy flavors of Pinot Noir play well with the ginger note in this dish. The savory sesame element further accentuates the inherent earthiness of Pinot Noir. As a truly medium-bodied red wine, it will balance the weight of grass-fed beef.

Lemelson, 'Thea's Selection,' Willamette Valley, OR

METHOD

1
• Place a small saucepan over high heat. Add rice, 1 1/2 cups water and 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt. • When water boils, reduce heat to medium-low. Cover, and cook until all liquid has been absorbed and rice is tender, about 15 minutes. • Remove from heat. Set aside, covered, until ready to serve.
2
MISE EN PLACE • Peel and finely chop ginger. • Peel and chop garlic. • Finely chop green onion, keeping white and green parts separate. • Discard tough broccoli stems. Cut florets into bite-size pieces. • Halve pea greens crosswise.
3
• In a bowl, combine Wild Wild East sauce, sesame oil, tamari, 2 tablespoons water and sugar. Stir to dissolve sugar. • In another bowl, whisk together cornstarch and 2 tablespoons water.
4
• Place a wok or deep skillet over high heat. Add 2 tablespoons cooking oil. When oil is hot, add ginger, garlic and green onion whites. Toss until fragrant, about 1 minute. • Scatter in beef. Cook undisturbed until browned on bottom, about 1 minute. • Cook, tossing, until browned all over, 1-2 minutes.
5
• Add broccoli. Spread out in a single layer. Cook undisturbed 30 seconds. • Pour in Wild Wild East sauce mixture. Cook, tossing, until broccoli is tender and beef is cooked through, 1-2 minutes. • Add water if needed to prevent sticking.
