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.

    Loved it!

    Made a bunch of changes and it still came together superbly, listing them below but I do want to say that I doubled the sauce and still felt it wasn’t enough. I would either triple it or double it, add half when the recipe calls for it and half literally 20 seconds before transferring from pan.

    1. I added two thinly sliced Thai red chili’s in the sauce and think I could have easily increased to 4
    2. Added a handful of basil in the last minute of stir frying

    This sauce would be so good in just about any stir fry!!

    Hello Natasha, I absolutely love your recipes – thank you for sharing them with us! I have 2 questions about this recipe, hoping you can help with: 1.) When I started to cook the beef, there was a lot of water released which I had to drain. Any idea why that happened? 2.) In this recipe, you do not coat beef in starch (you do that in the other pepper/carrot/beef stir fry), what is the reason for not coating the beef in starch here?

    Reply

    • Natasha
      December 11, 2020

      Hi Ella, that is usually due to either using partially frozen beef or having the skillet not hot enough. You want to put the beef down on a very hot skillet to sear it otherwise it will steam cook and get too juicy. Also, make sure not to crowd the pan which will cause the skillet to cool down quickly and create the same problem.

    Very delicious. Simple and my family devoured it. I added 2 tablespoons of honey and doubled the whole batch to feed my family of 6. I used a london broil( sliced thin )since that was what was on sale at the grocery store. I also used garlic powder and ginger powder instead of fresh ingredients. It is what I had in the pantry. Everything was delicious and turned out perfect. I would say next time, I will add some crushed red pepper for a little kick.

    I was worried it’d be too salty, as most beef and broccoli recipes are. But it was perfect! I used thinly sliced sirloin and frozen broccoli florets. The broc took longer to cook than explained in the recipe, obviously because it was frozen but tasted perfect. I cooked the meat in two stages for the most even heating. I also used 1/8 tsp ground ginger instead of fresh. It was the best beef and broccoli I’ve made and the hubby agreed!

    I used to buy Oyster Sauce when I made Beef & Broccoli, but I decided to make Natasha’s recipe sauce instead last night. It was so much better than any restaurant or Oyster Sauce that I’ve bought. My husband said it was the best he had EVER had. The only thing I did differently was, I used Sesame Chili Oil which gave it a bit of heat which we both like. This is a keeper & a 5 star recipe for sure!

      Hi Rose, I haven’t tested that in an Instant Pot to advise. If you experiment, let me know how you liked the recipe

    Is it necessary to add the brown sugar? I’m a diabetic and would like to skip that ingredient.

      Hi Kerri, I haven’t tried this without brown sugar yet but I imagine that should also work. You might have to experiment on that but please share with us how it goes if you give it a try.

        Kerri,

        We omit the brown sugar from this recipe because of my wife’s diet, but she does drizzle a slight amount of honey and that works amazing.

        My husband is diabetic, too. Splenda makes a brown sugar that is “diabetic safe,” so to speak. I use it in all recipes that call for brown sugar. It’s great!!

    Made this last night. It was awesome! The key is getting that beef cut really thin to make it nice and crispy. I am making this again tonight!

      Hi Alma, the key with flank steak is to cut it as thinly as possible.

      Hi Kelly, I have only tried this with fresh but that should still work. Most of the dry bottles have conversions listed on the side. I also recommend a google search to find the equivalent.

    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!

    Hi! I made this tonight and it’s so delicious!! I’ve tried several other recipes and it either comes out too salty or too thin. One question though – does you nutrition info/calorie count include the white rice? My guess is no, but wanted to double check! Thanks!

    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 differently was double the stir fry sauce to make sure there was enough!
    I used Flank Steak and froze for a bit and sliced on my electric slicer. The recipe flavor and taste was amazing!! Used leftover rice from Sunday when we ordered chinese out. Honestly.. this beef and broccoli was wayyy better too.

    Made this last night – it’s a keeper! Very flavorful, and easy to make….in fact, I went right to a measurement of 1 1/2 times the ingredients for the sauce to ensure enough, and was glad I did – delicious! 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.

    This was seriously so good and really easy to make. I subbed golden monkfruit sweetener for the brown sugar and used xanthan gum instead of cornstarch, served with cauliflower rice because we’re trying to eat keto/low carb, and it was SO GOOD! I will for sure make this again, and I’m looking forward to trying more of Natash’s recipes.
