Beef is delicious and protein-packed to give you the sustained strength you need to get through the back to school season. We also made sure to add plenty of broccoli for a balanced meal.

What is the Best Cut of BEEF for Stir Fry?

The best beef cuts for stir fry are tender and lean. We love Flank Steak which is lean and easy to chew when thinly sliced against the grain. More great beef cuts for stir fry include:

The Best Beef and Broccoli Sauce:

Many stir fry recipes have gone wrong with a poorly made sauce. We tested this recipe over and over until we arrived at the perfect balance of sweet and savory. For the best stir fry sauce:

  • Use low sodium soy sauce (or Gluten Free Tamari)
  • Use the right amount of fresh ginger – it has strong flavor so don’t overdo it.
  • Do not skip the sesame oil as it gives authentic flavor
  • Simmer sauce at least 3 minutes to mellow out garlic and ginger
  • For a thinner sauce, add 2 Tbsp water at the end

How to Ensure Tender Beef?

The right cut (see list above) can make all the difference in a stir fry. Here are our best tips to achieve tender beef:

  • Freeze steak 30 minutes for easier slicing
  • Use a sharp knife to cut super thin slices against the grain
  • Add steak to a HOT skillet to sear and seal in juices
  • Don’t overcrowd the pan or it cools quickly and will steam cook

Can I Make Beef and Broccoli Ahead?

This saucy beef and broccoli recipe reheats really well so it’s perfect for weekly meal prep and to-go lunches for school and work. The protein and nutrients found in beef give you and your family the strength and energy you need to get through the busy school season.

For meal prep: add cooled rice to a heat-safe container and top with the Beef Broccoli Stir Fry, then cover and refrigerate until ready to heat and serve (Beef and Broccoli can be refrigerated up to 4 days).

How to Pack a Hot Thermos:

Pack a hot thermos in the morning and it will be warm at lunchtime. A hot thermos can keep food hot for 5 hours before it’s eaten, and this Broccoli Beef is the Best. School. Lunch. Ever!

  1. Heat the thermos first by filling 3/4 full with boiling water (do not overfill), cover with lid and let sit 5 min and drain just before adding food.
  2. Meanwhile, heat food to 165˚F. Place into the heated thermos and close with lid.

Beef and Broccoli is an easy, 1-pan, 30-minute meal that is loaded with fresh broccoli, tender nutrition-packed beef, and the best stir fry sauce. We love this over steamy white rice.

Skill Level: Easy
Cost to Make: $14-$18
Keyword: beef and broccoli
Cuisine: Asian
Course: Main Course
Calories: 385 kcal
Servings: 4 people

Ingredients

Beef and Broccoli Ingredients:

  • 1 lb flank steak very thinly sliced into bite-sized strips
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil (or vegetable oil), divided
  • 1 lb broccoli (cut into 6 cups of florets)
  • 2 tsp sesame seeds optional garnish

Stir Fry Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp fresh ginger grated (loosely packed)
  • 2 tsp garlic grated (from 3 cloves)
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 6 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce (or GF Tamari)
  • 3 Tbsp packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp sesame oil

Instructions

  1. Prep: Start cooking white rice first so it's ready when the stir fry is done. Cover and freeze steak 30 minutes for easier slicing.

  2. Combine all stir fry sauce ingredients in a bowl, stir well to dissolve the sugar, and set aside.

  3. Place a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 Tbsp oil.  Add broccoli florets and sauté 4-5 minutes, partially covered with lid, stirring or tossing several times until broccoli is bright green and crisp-tender then remove from pan. Tip: If you prefer softer broccoli, add 2 Tbsp water before covering with the lid and it will steam cook the broccoli.
  4. Increase heat to high heat and add 1 Tbsp oil. Add beef in a single layer and sauté 2 minutes per side or just until cooked through. Quickly pull out a piece to test for doneness.
  5. Add the sauce, reduce heat to medium/low and simmer 3-4 minutes. It will thicken. Add broccoli and stir to combine. Stir in 1-2 Tbsp water to thin the sauce if desired. Serve over white rice.

      March 12, 2020

      Hi Beth, it is possible that thickness was too much or it was overcooked. We’ve had amazing results with this being really tender. I hope you try it again with better results. Reply

      You can also do as I do and asians and “velvet” the meat. Put 2 tsp baking soda in 1 cup water and marinate stake pieces for 1 hour in a ziploc bag. Rinse, drain, pat dry, fry. It will be super soft and moist. Reply

    I decided not to have rice with this one time so I made double the sauce and put half of it on a package of linguini pasta to make an Asian noodle. My kids loved it so much that now they ask for the “asisn” noodles for a side dish for many things. Thanks for the great sauce recipe. Reply

    Natashas, can you use stew beef that is thinly sliced, I ask because that is what I have in my freezer and the other cuts of meat you suggest are a little above my price range. Reply

      I bet that could work. The results may be slightly different but watch that meat closely so it doesn’t dry out. Reply

      Hi Nina, if you cut the meat very thinly and don’t overcook, I think it could work well. Thick pieces might be too chewy and tough. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    Made this for the first time last night. Very easy to prepare and it will last for a few more meals to come.

    I did balls up the Sesame oil qty though. I slid the quantity slider to feed 6 people and then wanted to double the sauce amount.

    Added 6 Tbls of Sesame oil which has overpowered the rest of the flavours somewhat. I enjoyed it but the daughter made a comment haha.

    I need to make another batch of sauce to top up the leftovers. Do I go back to the original slide for 4 and then just double the recipe from that?

    Also, I need to convert everything to metric which does my head in sometimes, as there are the US cup and Tbls/Tsp measurements plus the Imperial equivalents. It could be handy for many other metric users if there were US and Metric tabs which converted recipes automatically for us?

    Anyway, for a bloke who is venturing into the kitchen for the very first time and so very late in life, you Natasha are my go-to as you present professional but fun and easy to follow videos.

    Cheers,
    John Reply

    • Natasha
      January 7, 2020

      Hi, the ginger adds authentic Asian flavor and it is really difficult to replace. You could also use dried ginger (in lesser quantities) if you have that on hand. I would probably add more garlic if I didn’t have any ginger and maybe a little extra sesame oil. Reply

    Absolutely the best beef and broccoli recipe out there; better than what you’d get at a restaurant. It’s fresh, clean, delicious, and authentic. We cook and serve at a homeless shelter for 70 people and decided to do an oriental theme for New Years’. This was the main dish (along with some variations of chicken) and it was a huge success. Thanks Natasha; it was phenominal. Reply

    Hey Natasha
    Its another big hit weekday meal. Its amazing. The sauce tastes soooo good. I just had a problem and need to know from you what was wrong.
    I used a top round roast to make the recipe and i did exactly what you mentioned, but it ended up a tough and not easy to chew! What was wrong? I cut it against the grain and put it in a hot pan in two patches. Thank you loads Reply

    • Natasha
      December 23, 2019

      Hi Fatima, I would recommend slicing super thinly with that cut of meat. It helps to freeze the meat for 30 minutes for easier slicing and then cut against the grain. Also, using too much meat could cause the skillet to cool down too quickly and the meat wouldn’t sear properly – if the skillet isn’t hot enough or is cooled too quickly, the meat will steam cook causing it to be tough. I hope that helps! Reply

    This may be a silly question but in Prep, Step 1 it says to freeze and slice steak for 30 minutes. Does this mean I need to cook it and then refreeze for 30 minutes before cooking? My flank steak is currently frozen now, do I need to do anything besides defrosting it?

    I made this tonight and it was yummy!😋 I used less oil with the water for the broccoli. Next time, I’m going to cook the meat in two batches. The pan was too crowded so it stewed at first 🥴. Instead of flank steak, I used a steak the was on sale for $5.99/pound. The freezing tip was definitely worth doing. Maybe next time I’ll add a little Asian hot sauce to the liquid. I did add a little water to the sauce to thin it out.

    This is definitely a meal that can be put on the table in the time that it would take to order it out. Reply
