Total Time: 40 Minutes, Servings: 4 Servings

Ingredients :
  • 3/4 pound flank steak or sirloin, trimmed of fat, very thinly sliced against the grain
  • 1 Tablespoon cooking oil
  • water for blanching broccoli (omit if not blanching)
  • 2 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 3-1/2 cups broccoli florets about 1 head
  • For the Beef Marinade:
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch or arrowroot or tapioca starch for paleo
  • 1 teaspoon low sodium soy sauce can substitute with gluten free tamari or coconut aminos for paleo-friendly version
  • 1/4 teaspoon dark soy sauce optional for color & extra flavor(leave out for gluten free or paleo version)
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • For the Sauce:
  • 1-1/2 Tablespoons oyster sauce or vegetarian flavored oyster sauce, leave out for paleo version
  • 1-1/2 Teaspoons low sodium soy sauce can substitute with gluten free tamari or coconut aminos for paleo-friendly version
  • 1/4 teaspoon dark soy sauce optional, but recommended
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar or 1 teaspoon raw honey for paleo
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mirin Chinese cooking wine or dry sherry (omit for paleo version)
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch can substitute with arrowroot or tapioca starch for paleo
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup cold water sodium free chicken broth for extra flavor, plus more as needed to thin out the sauce
  • Serving Suggestions:
  • cooked rice, quinoa, or noodles



Instructions :
  • Marinate the beef: In a medium bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the marinade. Add the beef slices and stir until coated. Set aside for at least 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile blanch the broccoli: (skip if not blanching) In a large non-stick saute pan or wok on high heat, bring the water to a boil. Add the broccoli florets and cook for about 30 seconds. Drain and immediately rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
  • Make the sauce: Combine all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Heat cooking oil over high heat, for about 2 minutes - using the same non-stick pan or wok you used for your broccoli. The pan needs to be hot enough that you start seeing a little bit of smoke rising.
  • Quickly add the beef to the smoking pan and spread the pieces out to a single layer allowing them to sear and brown. Add the garlic and continue cooking until the meat is no longer pink (about 1-2 minutes making sure not to overcook). Pour in the sauce, stirring constantly, until the sauce boils and thickens - about 30 seconds. Add more water if needed to thin out the sauce. Quickly stir in the broccoli and toss everything together to coat well. Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Sprinkle with sesame seeds and chopped green onions if desired. Serve hot over rice or noodles.
  • For meal prep: Divide evenly into lunch containers with your favorite carb - rice, quinoa or noodles.
