Beef and Broccoli


Note: items marked with an asterisk (*) are optional

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 5 cloves garlic, finely minced or pressed
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt*
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • pinch red pepper flakes, optional and to taste
  • 1.5 pounds flank steak, sliced against the grain in bite size pieces
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped*
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 to 3 green onions sliced in 1-inch segments on the bias, optional for garnishing
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, optional for garnishing


Step 1

Preheat oven to 425F and line a sheet pan with silicone mat, parchment paper or foil

Step 2

To a large bowl add the soy sauce, garlic, honey, brown sugar, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, optional salt, pepper, optional cayenne or red pepper flakes, and whisk to combine. Reserve 1/2 in a separate bowl

Step 3

Add the steak, stir to combine, and let it marinate for 20 minutes (if you have time and can marinate for up to 1 hour, even better).

Step 4

Pour steak into a colander to drain excess marinade, transfer the steak to the sheet pan with space in between the pieces; set aside.

Step 5

Add the broccoli to the reserved marinade mixture and give it a quick dunk, you just want to moisten it a bit. Using a tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the broccoli to the sheet pan, and scatter it in between the steak if possible so food isn’t overlapping too much; reserve the marinade.

Step 6

Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the steak is cooked through and the broccoli is fork-tender.

Step 7

While the food bakes, add the reserved marinade to a small saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.

Step 8

Add the cornstarch and cold water to a small bowl, stir to combine, add all the cornstarch slurry to the boiling saucepan, whisking nearly constantly for 30 seconds or until dissolved. The sauce will get very thick quickly because there’s not much quantity. If desired, add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup water as desired for consistency, whisking until incorporated and smooth.

Step 9

After the beef and broccoli are done, drizzle with the sauce, to taste.

Step 10

Garnish with optional green onions, optional sesame seeds, and serve immediately.
