We love a good stir fry recipe, and this broccoli beef stir fry is a current favorite at our house. It feels like takeout, but it’s really pretty easy to make. Plus, it’s way better than takeout because it’s a healthy stir fry made with real food ingredients.
We apparently have a thing for Asian inspired cuisine because we seem to keep adding these types of recipes to our schedule to try and create new recipes for the blog. But hey, you guys seem to be enjoying them. There’s just something comforting and enjoyable to it, so why ruin a good thing?!
Pair It With Some Rice
We love to make this a complete bowl meal with a little bit of white or cauliflower rice. You decide. Sometimes we go for white rice and other times we like to keep it lower carb and add-on the extra veggies with cauliflower rice. Sometimes we even add some extra greenery with kale or spinach.
Quick + Easy
Whether you have a busy week, or you’d just rather spend your evening doing other things, we think you’ll love how quick and easy this broccoli beef stir fry to make. Flank steak cooks pretty quickly, especially since we have you slice it into this pieces for this healthy stir fry. And then, you just have to let the sauce thicken up and the broccoli to get slightly tender and you’re good to go!

Delicious, but a bit too heavy on the pepper and ginger for our taste; will adjust next time I make this tasty dish. The next day we had leftovers and added halved cherry tomatoes when reheating which was fantastic.
Looks delicious…I’ve got cassava flour and corn starch…and arrowroot flour and regular flour. Would any of these maybe work instead of tapioca flour?
Either corn starch or arrowroot would be a good substitution. Enjoy!
Why did my meat turn out so chewy? I used flank steak and followed the recipe.
Oh no, that’s a bummer! We haven’t had that issue, but it sounds like it got a little overcooked. Your cut might have been a little leaner or thinner than what we’ve worked with. I’d try again cooking for shorter time or using skirt steak. It’s a little fattier and typically comes out more tender for us.
I make this a couple times a month to freeze for lunches. I has become one of my most favourite dishes because it freezes so well and tastes soooo good. Thank you!
