Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry


For the broccoli rice
  • 4 cups broccoli florets about 2 small crowns
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 1 green onion thinly sliced white and green parts separated

For the Sauce
  • ¼ cup hoisin sauce
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seed oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger minced

For the beef
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound flank steak thinly sliced across the grain
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. To make the riced broccoli, process the broccoli florets in a blender or food processor until you get a riced texture. Heat a pan with olive oil on medium, add the garlic and the white parts of the green onions and fry until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Add the riced broccoli to the mixture and toss together until the broccoli slightly softens, about 2-4 minutes. Divide the broccoli between 4 bowls and wipe clean the pan with a paper towel
  2. To make the sauce, whisk together the ingredients in a small bowl or a small blender. Set aside.
  3. To cook the steak, season with salt and pepper. Then heat the pan used for broccoli rice with olive oil on medium-high. Place the steak strips on the pan in a single layer and cook for 1-2 minutes per side to brown each steak strip. You many need to cook in batches. Add the sauce to the steak and reduce the heat to low. Cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, stirring to coat and allowing the sauce to thicken.
  4. Serve the steak on top of the riced broccoli, and garnish with the green parts of the green onions and red pepper flakes.
