Once you realize how quick and easy it is to toss together beef and broccolini in soy sauce, ginger and toasted sesame seed oil, you might never order takeout again. Broccolini is a cross between broccoli and kale. For the beef, pick tender piece like filet mignon. Regardless of the cut you choose, partially freeze the meat first, just until firm but not frozen solid, about 30 minutes. This makes it easier to thinly slice the meat against the grain.
