Beef and Broccoli Recipe:

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. Beef is so versatile for stir fry. You can add your favorite vegetables to this recipe like snap peas, bell peppers, carrots, and even mushrooms.

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.

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.

    I made this last night for dinner and it was a hit! One thing I did by mistake was to add some Worchester sauce (A couple of shots) because I mistake it for the Soy sauce when grabbing the bottle. I will make it again for lunch today and not add the Worchester sauce….lol!

    I made this tonight after going to three stores looking for sesame oil, which I found and glad I did! I used top sirloin grilling steak and the meat was so tender. I added a few tablespoons of water at end so sauce covered the broccoli well. My adult son (with a discerning palate) came back to kitchen to tell me it tasted really good, so I knew it turned out well! My teenage daughter really enjoyed it too. This meal was so delicious. I savoured every bite! It honestly tasted better than takeout and something that one would find in an authentic restaurant somewhere in Asia! I give it a 9.8 as perfection is nearly impossible but this was close to it. THANK YOU Natasha for the great recipe and video. This meal was the highlight of our day! I will make this again!

    Hello, the first time I made this I didn’t have broccoli so I used asparagus, it came out super tasty. The second time I made this I didn’t have broccoli or asparagus so I used French green beans, it came out tasty too. The third time I made this I had broccoli and made it according to the recipe and it came out splendid. Now, I’m about to make it a fourth time and I have all three vegetables but everyone in my household agrees that it tastes way better with asparagus so I’ll be using that instead 😅

The only thing I did different was use Toasted Sesame Oil, because that’s all I had. Will definitely throw away my old “go to” recipe for Beef & Broccoli! Thanks for sharing.

    I made this last night exactly following the recipe. I used top round “cubed steak” cut thin by the butcher, run through the “cubing machine” then I pounded the meat with a mallet and cut into “meat worms” and coated with about 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and set aside for about 10 minutes while I Sauted the broccoli florets with a 4oz. can of sliced water chestnuts (drained) I found in the pantry. Your sauce was excellent as published. The only change being I dissolved the starch in a couple of tablespoons of cold water before adding to the sauce. Served with Basmati rice using Low Sodium beef broth instead of water. Brother in law who ONLY eats beef and broccoli at restaurants and Asian take out says best ever!

My daughter, who has eaten beef and broccoli in every restaurant where we live, said, “It was as good as any restaurant if not better.” And my wife couldn’t stop saying, “Oh my god, this is so good,” after every bite! This is definitely a 5-star recipe thanks Natasha I love your videos and I love your recipes even more.

      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.

    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

    The recipe calls for too much sesame oil (especially if you double the recipe for leftovers). Most recipes suggest tsp of oil not tbsp.
