As we sat down for dinner at our favorite Chinese food restaurant my daughter looked over and said ” Daddy, can we make Beef & Broccoli with deer also?” i just smiled and started thinking of how this recipe would taste. That night we got home and I pulled out some mule deer and got to work. I used my 5 year old daughter as my taste tester and we got the sauce perfect. Here is my version of that classic Beef & Broccoli dish, enjoy.
