Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry


– 1 lb. flank steak, cut into long, thin strips – 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided – 1 lb. broccoli florets, about 3 medium crowns – 2 tsp. sesame seeds, optional Stir Fry Sauce: – 1/2 c. water – 1/3 c. low-sodium soy sauce – 3 Tbsp. honey – 2 Tbsp. sesame oil – 1 1/2 Tbsp. corn starch – 1 tsp. fresh ginger, grated – 1/2 tsp. black pepper


Step 1

If serving rice with the stir fry, begin making it so it is ready when the stir fry is done.

Step 2

In a medium bowl, whisk together the stir fry sauce ingredients. Whisk well to incorporate and dissolve the honey. Set sauce aside.

Step 3

To a large skillet or wok, add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add the broccoli and sautee for 4-5 minutes tossing frequently until broccoli is bright green and slightly tender. Transfer the sauteed broccoli to a bowl and cover to keep warm.

Step 4

In same skillet, add the last tablespoon of olive oil and heat over medium high heat. Add the beef and brown for 3-4 minutes or just until cooked through. Drain off any excess fat the beef will render.

Step 5

Pour the sauce over the browned beef and reduce heat to medium-low. Stir often. Bring to a low simmer and heat for 3-4 minutes. Sauce will thicken. Add in the cooked broccoli and toss together with the sauce to coat.

Step 6

Serve with white, brown or cauliflower rice or noodles. Top with sesame seeds, if desired.
