Easy Beef and Broccoli (with or without Oyster Sauce)

Oddly enough rice is seriously a new things to me. Growing up the only. rare appearance of rice was boxed, Rice a Roni. When I met my husband, this starch loving guy, showed me how delicious it was. I was hooked on trying new types of rices and way to flavor it. In comes the Beef and Broccoli part lol. My husband loves Chinese food. I'm not a huge fan all the high sodium / MSG whole ordeal when it comes to ordering Chinese delivery. So, like any dish I try somewhere else, try and make it myself - the healthier way. My husband also likes to throw obstacles my way when it comes to food and recipes. He is allergic to shell fish (sad). This means that oyster sauce is off limits. So here is a with and without versions of the recipe :)
