Skip the takeout and whip up a fast and fresh recipe for Easy Beef and Broccoli in 20 minutes or less.

Easy Beef and Broccoli in a nonstick sauté pan, white rice in a small brown bowl and sesame seeds in a small white ramekin with chopsticks resting on top.

Yes, you read that correctly … 20 minutes! As in, you are less than half an episode of Fixer Upper away from digging your chopsticks into a big ol’ bowl of the most flavorful, tender, saucy Easy Beef and Broccoli.

Beef in nonstick sauté pan.

The classic takeout dishes (think Orange Chicken, Pad Thai and Chicken Egg Rolls) were one of my many cravings during my second pregnancy so I decided a fast and fresh version of beef and broccoli was a must!

Broccoli and onions in nonstick sauté pan.

There are just two tablespoons of oil in this entire dish, and you better believe it’s still packed with all that sweet, tangy, garlicky soy sauce flavor. After all, isn’t the best part of beef and broccoli the gravy-like sauce?

Nonstick sauté pan with broccoli and beef with sauce being poured into pan.

It has to be thick enough to coat the tender slices of beef and the broccoli florets, without weighing down the entire dish. And most importantly, there has to be just enough sauce so that the accompanying rice also gets a chance to soak up all that glorious garlicky gravy. Want to see for yourself? Tune in below!

Mouth watering yet? Grab your knife and get ready to slice and dice your way to Easy Beef and Broccoli that’s guaranteed to kick those takeout menus to the curb.

Easy Beef and Broccoli in a nonstick sauté pan, white rice in a small brown bowl and sesame seeds in a small white ramekin with chopsticks resting on top.
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Total Time 20 mins
Servings 4 servings


  • 3 Tablespoons cornstarch, divided
  • 1 pound flank steak, cut into thin 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 3 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 4 cups small broccoli florets
  • 1/2 cup sliced white onions


  • In a large bowl, whisk together 2 tablespoons cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water. Add the beef to the bowl and toss to combine.
  • In a separate small bowl, whisk together the remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch with the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic and ginger. Set the sauce aside. 
  • Heat a large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of the vegetable oil and once it is hot, add the beef and cook, stirring constantly until the beef is almost cooked through. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the beef to a plate and set it aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to the pan and once it is hot, add the broccoli florets and sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the broccoli is tender, about 4 minutes. (See Kelly’s Notes.) 
  • Return the beef to the pan then add the prepared sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until the sauce thickens slightly. Serve with rice or noodles. 

Kelly's Notes:

  • To guarantee bright green broccoli, blanch the florets in boiling water then drain and dry it very well before adding it to the pan. If you opt for this additional blanching step, reduce the cooking time of the broccoli to 2 minutes. 
  • The sauce must come to a boil in order for the cornstarch to work as a thickening agent.

    We are munching on the Easy Beef and Broccoli right now.
    Only complaint is from wifey, who thinks it is too hot ;-)

    It is definitely a keeper this recipe

  2. 3 stars
    This is a good basic beginner beef & broccoli recipe – Liked it sauce was a bit too salty for us so on my second attempt at the recipe I reduced the soya sauce to 1/4 cup & added beef stock unsalted. Was much better. You might consider adding a few drops to 1/2 tsp of sesame seed oil i found it gave the whole dish a bit more in depth flavour. Work well for GF folks –

      1. No I used low sodium on my you first try & Tamara sauce on the second try to keep it GF. Even at that it was too salty. Perhaps we are now sensitive to salt in our diet. Other than that the basic recipe was good, I would encourage folks to add the sesame oil to round out the flavour. Make sure you serve this with a good quality brown rice for extra nutrition.

  3. 5 stars
    I know it’s good when I start going around bragging about it.
    Even more so when my wife loves it right then and there I really appreciate that recipe.

    1. 3 stars
      I’ve tried several different beef broccoli stir fry recipes, and this one is definitely the tastiest and simplest to prepare. But, in what universe does this take only 10 minutes to prepare? For crying out loud, it takes a majority of the 10 minutes just to peel and mince the garlic and peel and grate the ginger. Forget about peeling and slicing the onion, chopping and washing the broccoli, and preparing the meat and sauce. Maybe if you’re Bobby Flay you can prepare this in 10 minutes, but the average person, if they’re being honest with themselves, cannot. Now, lots of recipes grossly understate the realistic preparation time, I just felt like calling out this one. I give this recipe 5 stars for taste, and 1 star for fantastically misleading the consumer on preparation time.

  4. 5 stars
    My family loves this recipe. We tried it with a dark soya sauce, and I don’t recommend.. Came out almost black!

  5. 5 stars
    I made this tonight for my husband’s birthday dinner. I’ve never made beef and broccoli before but I am so glad I found this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly (except I had to use a little more oil because of the type of pan I had available). It was a huge hit. I made a double batch, I look forward to having some for lunch tomorrow.

  6. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious recipe! Thanks so much! I doubled the sauce and added 2 more tablespoons of brown sugar, the juice of one orange , and about 2-3tablespoons of honey it was perfect ! Also I was in a serious crunch so I used 90sec jasmine rice and steam in a bag broccoli and everything turned out better than the restaurant ❤️

  7. 4 stars
    I didn’t pay attention and used regular soy sauce and the result was terrible. I couldn’t eat the broccoli because it absorved too much salt. To help, I made some rice without salt and I could eat the meat with it just fine, but it wasn’t a pleasant experience.

    I’m giving it four stars because I didn’t like the texture when I put the meat with cornstarch in the pan. It was disgusting, really. Maybe it wasn’t even necessary.

  8. 5 stars
    I love how easy this meal is to track (and low sugar is a bonus) and is still so delicious! I can’t believe how quick and easy it is to make! Thank you! This is my new go to sauce recipe!

  9. I made this, used shaved beef from Kroger thinking it would work. It didn’t. Good flavor, terrible texture and consistency.

  10. 5 stars
    We always buy our Chinese food. Tonight I tried your recipe. My husband and 19 yr old grandson had multiple servings and said it was better than take out.
    It took less time than I thought and was so easy to do. Thank you for sharing.

  11. 5 stars
    I had sirloin steak on hand so I thinly sliced that instead of flank and it was perfect. I added some carrots for extra crunch. This recipe is truly better than takeout. It’s now a house favorite and I’ll have to keep it on rotation!

  12. 5 stars
    Omg this recipe was sooo easy to make and it was really good too. I made it and there was no left overs. I even doubled the recipe for a house of 5 people. This is a recipe I will be using every time! Ty so much for the tips too.

  13. 4 stars
    Just did this on the Blackstone and it was very good. I did use regular soy sauce and would definitely use low sodium. Also will probably add a little more ginger and some red pepper flakes or something else for a little spice. Whole family liked it, thank you for the recipe.

      1. 4 stars
        Definitely as good as or better than takeout! And healthy besides! Who da’ thought?? Thank you!

  14. 4 stars
    This recipe is great. I have found that it has very little sauce, so if you like sauce to put on the rice as well I’ve found it better to to double (or triple) the sauce.

  15. 5 stars
    Overall it was delicious. Not something I’d eat often, but definitely a nice meal to make if I’m craving Chinese food. I didn’t use low-sodium soy sauce, but will definitely opt for low-sodium next time. The soy sauce I used made the dish very salty but with white rice it helped tone it down. Thank you for the recipe!

  16. 4 stars
    This is a quick and easy recipe. I used a sliced precooked pot roast that I bought at Costco instead of flank steak. Coated the meat as directed. Quickly cooked for 3 minutes on medium heat as to not dry out the meat. Followed the remaining directions.

  17. 5 stars
    My husband loves this. I substituted riced cauliflower for the rice since he is on Keto. He said this is restaurant quality! Easy and delicious! I have made it several times!

  18. 5 stars
    Loved this dish! Very quick and easy to put together. I used dry ginger but not enough. Thinking of adding mushrooms and shoestring carrots next time.

  19. 5 stars
    This is authentic Chinese restaurant quality food. This is quality food that you prepare at home. Absolutely delicious.

  20. 5 stars
    Awesome! Because of the diet requirements, I did not serve it with rice, but I doubled the amount of broccoli- it turned out really good.

  21. 5 stars
    really quite good. I added some a few tables spoons oyster sauce and some cayenne to give it an added kick.

  22. 5 stars
    Delish. I pre seasoned the beef before slicing and mixing with the cornstarch. Had this recepie with yellow rice and it turned out amazing.

  23. thank you! so easy to adjust for our low sodium and low carb diets, and a great way to get veggies into my hubby!

  24. 4 stars
    I made this tonight and added some fresh pineapple to it. I am not crazy about ginger but I wanted to add a zest to it. I did add a dash or two of ginger seasoning. My husband and I both enjoyed the dish, but felt like it needed something else. (I guess more ginger. huh?)

  25. 5 stars
    Very nice, great for a quick weeknight meal, I used left over steak from the weekend, just sliced it up and added to the dish a couple of minutes before it was done.

  26. 5 stars
    Five stars!! I substituted the beef for tofu and added a pinch of red pepper flakes to the sauce!!! So delicious! Can’t wait to try it with the beef!!!!

  27. 5 stars
    I substituted the beef for tofu and added a pinch of red pepper seeds to the sauce!!! Delicious!!!!

    1. I’m done with takeout and grocery store beef and broccoli. This recipe was perfect served with sticky rice.

  28. 5 stars
    It came out so delicious, my son said it was better then from the restaurant. Thank you so much. I look forward to more recipes from you.

  29. 5 stars
    Have made this 3-4 times now; best beef and broccoli I have had. Very easy to follow recipe. Family loves it❤️

  30. 5 stars
    Probably the best Beef and Broccoli we have ever had. I’ll never be able to order it at a restaurant again.

      1. I am going to make this recipe. Just wondering if I could use frozen broccoli florets?

      2. Absolutely, Lisa! Just make sure you drain them after they thaw so you don’t have excess water in your sauce. :)

  31. 5 stars
    A 5 star recipe is a recipe where I don’t have to make any changes. This is it! This was exactly what I was craving (take out worthy but at home) and super quick to throw together. Perfect for a weekday meal or if you’re short on time and hubby is already on his way home will be adding to the monthly rotation! Thanks Just A Taste!

    Double the recipe for leftovers. This made enough for 3 nice size portions.

    Super easy and my family loved it. I’ve added this as a go-to for a quick and easy (and impressive!) dinner on busy work days. I know I’m cooking a great meal for my family instead of just ‘dialing it in’ and cooking just to have something to eat.

    1. 5 stars
      Made this tonight! I doubled the sauce recipe so I could cook some extra veggies that the rest of the family doesn’t like! We let the onions and added shredded carrots to cook down before adding the broccoli. I cooked mushrooms and snow peas separately and spooned some sauce on them to flavor them. Served with rice noodles. Definitely a hit. No leftovers!!

  34. 5 stars
    this recipe works, but didnt taste like take out. I dont know if you skipped seasoning with salt and pepper before frying meat or if it was intentionally not seasoned, but it came out too mild for me. So I added eel sauce after to boost the flavors and salt and pepper. But as far as components, and presentation, and preparation, this is a winner. Very easy, but make sure to season meat.

  35. 5 stars
    Made it for the first time tonight , it was easy to prepare and quick especially after working all day. Very tasty it is a keeper will make it again . The only problem is there are no leftovers may have to double the recipe next time . Thanks alot for good healthy meal.

  36. 5 stars
    I made this for dinner last night and it was delicious!! The best homemade beef and broccoli I’ve ever tasted!! The recipe was so easy to follow too!!

      1. A little too thick for us. I’d use less cornstarch next time and add red pepper flakes for some heat. Also I might add more broccoli a little less meat. For my first time making beef n broccoli good recipe to follow.

  37. 5 stars
    My daughter is allergic to soy, so I omitted the Soy Sauce and used beef broth. Individuals can add soy sauce if they want it. I also put the cooked rice under the beef & broccoli to avoid self-servers skipping the rice. It was GREAT!

  38. 5 stars
    This was delicious! And even better the next day for lunch! I served it over Jasmine rice. Definitely going into our regular rotation.

  39. 5 stars
    I served over cauliflower rice for a low(er) carb diet, and it was amazing! A fantastic recipe to treat ourselves without ordering in.

  40. The recipe worked great, it turned out wonderful, especially using the low sodium soy sauce, it was delicious

  41. 5 stars
    Easy to make! My husband had 2
    Servings and he said it was really good (I’m not a good cook at all). Glad I decided to go with this recipe and not the other one I saw online. Will definitely make this again!

  42. 5 stars
    Best Beef and Broccoli recipe I’ve tried!! I printed it off so I could make this one every time.

  43. 5 stars
    This recipe is great! I’ve made it twice now! The whole family likes it, and it’s super easy.. (I don’t usually review recipes, THAT’S how good this is!) Thank you

    1. Thanks so much for taking the time to write a review, Theresa! I’m thrilled your family has been enjoying the recipe!

  44. Is there a low-sugar alternative? 6 tablespoons is way over the RDI. I really want to try the recipe but can’t consciously add that much into a dish that’s not at least a dessert.

    1. Hi Jessica – This recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons of packed light brown sugar but feel free to reduce it to suit your taste. :)

  45. 5 stars
    Easy Beef & Broccoli lived up to its name and is so simple and delicious! I marinated the meat with soy sauce, ginger and garlic for a few hours before I found this recipe. The only other thing I added were red pepper flakes. This is going into the rotation as it was a hands down winner with everyone in the family! Thanks for such a great recipe and the special tip to ensure the broccoli stays bright.

  46. 5 stars
    This was super flavorful! I was looking for a quick beef & broccoli recipe, and yours popped up. I did not have low-sodium soy sauce, so cut that to about 1/3 c. and added water. The garlic & ginger made the sauce pop! Do recommend the extra blanching or pre-steaming of the broccoli as you suggested if you don’t want it too crunchy.

  47. 5 stars
    So easy and delicious. I had ingredients on hand and needed a healthy last-minute meal. It was a bit of a lifesaver! We used a little extra broccoli and a little less beef. Sending it to my daughter– crazy busy in grad school, but she’ll have time to make this.
    thank you!

  48. 5 stars
    This recipe was so easy and delicious. I used leftover tri tip and it still came out great.

  49. Very delicious and definitely will make it again! Thank you for showing us readers how easy it is to make this beautiful dish!

  50. 4 stars
    This is all I’ve been craving since the gyms have opened up and now I get to make it at home for meal prep. Flavor heaven. Thanks a bunch!

  51. 5 stars
    Good recipe! I added some sesame oil when sautéing the beef as I love the flavor that it imparts to Asian dishes. I had some fresh mushroom that needed to be used, so added those, along with some matchstick carrots. My family really enjoyed this dish, and we will have again soon.

  52. 5 stars
    Super easy, super tasty and super quick. This is a really good recipe and I will make it my new go to. I only used 1/2 the amount of soy sauce though, which was totally fine, just added water. This was to reduce my sodium, not for flavor reasons. I’m so glad I chose this recipe.

  53. 5 stars
    Incredibly good sauce! I couldn’t believe I was the cook who produced it. Tasted like an up market Chinese restaurant. I did not have beef stock that other recipes required, so I found this recipe. I added more ginger, and substituted mushrooms for the onions, due to an onion sensitivity. I also used sirloin steak, because I had no flank on hand. Forgot to cook a starch, so had it without, but did not even miss it. It will now be on my regular rotation!!

      1. 5 stars
        This recipe was quick and easy. My family of 7 loved it. The flavor of the sauce was just like our favorite Chinese restaurant.

  54. 5 stars
    Delicious. I cut the recipe in half because I didn’t have enough broccoli and, with a side of rice, it was still able to feed my family of 3 with one serving left over. I used a coulotte (picanha) steak cut into strips and it was melt-in-your-mouth tender. Saving this one.

  55. 5 stars
    At first I was like ughh fresh ginger, but just so happens I had just bought some earlier in the week, I love the way ginger smells….
    Love the recipe i have to wait for hubby to get home and try it will follow up tomorrow..

    1. 5 stars
      This was fast and easy! Loved it especially for a FT working mom who is pregnant and has a toddler this was perfect for me because the last thing I want to do is spend all night in the kitchen. Made with califlower rice. Great low carb option

  56. 5 stars
    Holy moly! This is an absolute must try!! Hubby found this recipe when he was off work today and when I got home we made it together. My entire family was blown away and they would now like for us to add it to our weekly meal plan! Weekly y’all! It was so easy to make. THANK YOU!

  57. 4 stars
    This one is a winner. This is the first time I made beef and broccoli. The kids loved it! I am going to up the broccoli next time, because I like broccoli, but also to get more broccoli in my kids. :)

  58. Be sure to use low-sodium soy sauce. I only had regular on hand which made it just a bit too salty. Otherwise it was a great recipe — we’ll definitely do it again!

  59. 4 stars
    I’m not sure if I misjudged the amount of ginger necessary but this tasted more like a garlic ginger beef recipe that just happened to have broccoli and onion in it. Still very tasty, and I’d definitely make it again, but I might switch up the broccoli for some red and yellow bell peppers.

  60. 5 stars
    I have never eaten Beef and Broccoli but this sounded so good I had to try it. My grown son loved it and went back for 2nds and I still have enough for dinner today. The only thing I changed was adding a little more brown sugar. This recipe is a winner and I’ll be making it again.

  61. 5 stars
    Kelly!!! Girlllll! I have made this recipe EXACTLY (no kind of changes) about 3 times now!! And it’s absolutely GREAT every single time!! Thank you so much for your awesome recipe & for sharing it with the world! I have recommended it at least 5 times to friends!! Take care & keep up the amazing work!!

  62. This was awesome! It’s a good thing I made 1.5x the recipe and got 6 servings out of that. Plated with a drizzle of sesame oil, green onions and sesame seeds. Yummm!

  63. 5 stars
    This was really yummy. We had grilled an extra steak and sliced it up. It gave it a nice flavor and texture. In order to keep the carbs down we used sugar-free brown sugar and went light on the corn starch. Very delicious.I originally was going to make this recipe but I’m down with my back so the hubs took over and it was delicious !

  64. I love this we make it a lot. But I would say I can never get 4 servings out of this only three.

  65. 5 stars
    My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I get to eat a little more of it fir lunch tomorrow…I’ll make it again!

  66. 5 stars
    I used firm tofu instead of beef and I air fried the tofu to give it a little extra texture, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It came out fantastic and will definitely be making it again and again and again. My bestie recommended this recipe to me and I’m a fan! Thanks for sharing Kelly :)

  67. 5 stars
    Great, terrific and easy recipe! A quick weeknight meal. So tasty. My husband had seconds! ;) Thank you!

  68. 5 stars
    Recipe was very simple and tasted delicious! My family loved it even my daughter who doesn’t eat veggies. Will definitely be making this dish again.

  69. 5 stars
    Made this tonight for dinner! This was really good! My only problem (which was something I probably did) was that it was a tad salty. Next time I’m going to try and add a touch of honey to counteract the salt, and maybe lay off the soy sauce! Otherwise this was delicious! Thank you for the recipe!

  70. So I have been craving Chinese food and thought I would give it a try at home. I was impressed with my efforts, thank you, saving this recipe as a go to for our household. Absolute yum!

  71. 5 stars
    I have searched and searched for beef and broccoli recipes that are not sickeningly sweet and this was a winner. I used leftover tenderloin and frozen broccoli florets and it was a HUGE hit with me and my family! Thanks for such a great recipe!

  72. 5 stars
    This is really good, I’ve made it twice, but my beef sticks to the pan really bad. How do you get around that?

    1. Hi Rachel! Are you using a nonstick pan and are you allowing the oil to become hot before adding the beef? You might also want to try adding more vegetable oil to your pan next time. :)

  73. 5 stars
    Sooo good! I substituted chicken for the beef (cause it’s what I had on hand) and added some sliced red bell pepper just because. Served over rice, and ate two full plates! 10/10, would make again!!! Can’t wait for my leftovers tomorrow. Thank you!

  74. 5 stars
    Great to make this at home, so it’s healthier and so delicious. I added more ginger. I really like ginger!

  75. 5 stars
    This recipe is fantastic and as easy to make as promised! I was looking for some new meals to make for my family of 4 and this was the perfect addition. I tried it a week ago for the first time and my husband has already requested I make it again! It is now his new favorite for sure and mine as well! Thank you!

  76. 4 stars
    Healthy Tasty and Quick! Thank you so much! Definitely a keeper!
    I used Flank steak and it was not as tender. There’s a method using baking soda to tenderize which worked before.

  77. 5 stars
    Wow, This was the best, easiest beef and broccoli I’ve made yet! Thank you, you really nailed the sauce, it was perfect!

  78. 5 stars
    I made this the other night and it was so easy and so delicious! Only thing I did was add some sliced water chestnuts for added crunch and next time I’ll make additional sauce because my husband and I really enjoyed it over rice and needed more. As with other recipes of yours, this one is a keeper!

  79. You know what would be a really cool addition to recipes? It seem NO ONE is doing it. That is to offer two other options: 1. “Cooking for One”–LOTS of us Sr. Citizens love to cook, but we live alone. I don’t mind having some leftovers, but I don’t want to cook for 4. 2. Include adjustments to use other leftovers–like extra roast beef (already cooked). . .
    Thanks for listening.

    1. Hi Gale! You can actually adjust the ingredient measurements by hovering your cursor over the SERVINGS above and sliding the bar right or left. :)

  80. I tried this recipe tonight. It was soooo good. I didn’t have an onion, but used up some mushrooms I had instead. I also added about a cup of water when I added the sauce. Maybe I put more broccoli (didn’t measure that). I can’t wait to try the orange chicken.

  81. 5 stars
    I enjoyed it very much. Substituted a bag of frozen mixed veggies and powdered ginger cause I didn’t have fresh. I will definitely be adding this to my book of dinners, thanks!

  82. 5 stars
    In my defense, I tripled the recipe the first time I made it (so it took forever to cut up my meat), and made some last second alterations but, dang it was worth it! I didn’t quite have enough corn starch so I subbed in some coconut flour (worked perfectly). Subbed in coconut aminos for part of the soy sauce (wanted the sweeter flavor profile). Splashed in some fish sauce. Added a little sesame oil (because I practically live off the stuff), and lastly I used a mix of coconut sugar and trivia brown sugar blend to keep the carbs a little lower. Also was a little lazy and used frozen, steam-in-bag broccoli but it worked great! Everyone went bonkers for it! I have no doubt it would’ve been amazing the way it was written too! :) definitely making again.

  83. 5 stars
    Substituted soy sauce for 1/4 cup water and 1/4 cup fish sauce. It was amazing! Officially our family recipe! Thank you for sharing!

  84. 2 stars
    Sauce was a little bland and had WAY too much garlic. I love garlic, but that is all it tastes like…I’d recommend using 1/2 or a 1/4 the amount. It also took much longer to make than it says in the recipe. Though the instructions worked out. Good base recipe.

  85. 3 stars
    Am I the only one that thought this was so salty? I followed recipe to a T I had to land up adding some water and it was still so salty. Might just be me and I appreciate you posting recipes to try! I did use low sodium soy sauce, maybe I will try again and use 1/4 cup soy sauce and the rest water.

  86. This was such a good recipe. Both my husband and I loved it! Will be making again in the future :) Thank you!

  87. Simple, fast and yummy. I always thought it would be more difficult to make, it wasn’t. My roommates LOVED it!

  88. 5 stars
    Amazing!!! It tastes EXACTLY like the beef and broccoli the Chinese restaurant down the street has. And it’s so quick!! It was done before we had the rice ready to go with it. We used 1/2 teaspoon each garlic powder and ground ginger instead of the real stuff and it was perfect!

  89. 5 stars
    Very simple, quick recipe. My kids wanted to know which restaurant I bought it from :)

    I made it with tofu for my husband wh doesn’t eat beef and it was a good substitute for the beef.

  90. I made this tonight. I thought it was delicious. I followed the recipe with the exception that I used beef broth instead of water and more of it.

    This is the best beef and broccoli recipe I’ve ever made! Super simple and easy to follow. I switched the corn starch for arrowroot flour because we don’t each it. It turned out perfectly. We’ve even made this without the beef when we make a meal with broccoli. So good!

  92. 5 stars
    Love this! It’s the family favorite w the kids and hubby. I only really make when flank steak is on sale at my butcher tends to be pricy..

  93. i made this. very easy and quik to make. personal preference i found it a touch to heavy on the ginger and soy. my husband, who will drink soy right from the bottle thought it was great. next time i make it i will cut back on the ginger and substitute some of the soy for beef broth. but will definately make it again

  94. i made this. it was really good. personal preference, i found it abit to heavy on the ginger and the soy. my husband who will drink soy right from the bottle thought i was crazy. he loved it.

  95. Made it but used regular white sugar as a substitute for brown sugar because I was all out but it came out just as great.

    My husband and I loved this dish. The only changes I made were that I used ground ginger and garlic powder and added a sliced bell pepper to the mix. The flavor was delicious!

    Made this last night for my husband, he loved it so much that he wants me to make again tonight! Super easy and the only ingredient I didn’t have was fresh ginger, improvised with a little ground ginger but next time I’ll be better prepared

    I used leftover steak and frozen broccoli, it what I had in frig. It turned out great for a quick meal. I can only imagine how good it will be with fresh ingredients.

    AH-MAZING!! Family loved it!!
    Said the house smelled like a Chinese restaurant and tasted better than our local take out!! LOL
    Used 1/2 sesame oil and 1/2 olive oil.

    Awesome! Used 1/2 sesame oil, 1/2 avocado oil, and sprinkled with sesame seeds for serving. Otherwise, followed recipe. My teenage son loved it. We will definitely put this in the rotation.

    Not sure where I went wrong but somehow ended up with no sauce lol. Still tastes good! I’ll have to try it again. Thanks for sharing :)

  107. 5 stars
    Super good thank you. Because I didn’t want to go to the store, I used ground beef, and zucchini instead. The sauce was perfect for it.

  108. Wow! What a fabulous recipe! I have one picky eater and one who eats almost everything. It was a hit for both! I hope to add this to our bi-weekly menu, it is so simple and delicious ❤️

  109. 5 stars
    My family LOVE LOVE LOVES this recipe. Its quick and easy, and even my picky eaters love it! It has now become a staple meal in our house because its ready so quickly and everyone will eat it (& argue over who gets any leftovers). I am not a fan of most broccoli beefs, but this is amazing. We like to double the sauce and add cauliflower when its in season. The only thing we omit is onions because picky eaters.

  110. Delicious!! I omitted the onions (I’m not a fan of them) and I added a bunch of white mushrooms and cooked them with the broccoli. It was amazing!! Made it for friends and family (double recipe) and it was gone!!

  111. 5 stars
    Just made this for dinner and it came out perfect!! I added sliced carrots and a whole white onion (sliced). I would have added chili flakes but we were all out. Overall everything was delicious! I will be making this again!

    This is so good and easy, never ordering take out again. Although I did add an extra atep of dropping an open container of cornstarch on the floor, do not recommend!!!

    I used broccolini instead of florets. The proportions of ingredients were accurate for my taste. I crisped up the meat rather than just sautéing it. I think this recipe would work with a mix of other vegetables as well.

  114. 5 stars
    I wasn’t sure if my son was gonna like it, becacuse he is very picky eater, but he did and loved it!! i also was pleasantly surprised!! will definitely be making this again

  115. 4 stars
    Not sure what I did wrong, but we ended up with way too much sauce & it was very potent. The overall flavor was good, but too intense and our broccoli was swimming in it. Any ideas on what I need to do differently?

    1. Hi Heather! Did you allow the sauce to come to a boil to activate the cornstarch? That’s what thickens the sauce. If it doesn’t boil, it doesn’t thicken.

  116. 5 stars
    Just made this. Great recipe and so easy! I didn’t have fresh ginger so I used the dried stuff. Still tasted amazing and my picky 2-year-old loved it! Adding it to the rotation!

  117. 5 stars
    Delicious! I’m not really a measure-when-I-cook kinda girl, I just like to eyeball it. Ha ha. But I used all the suggested ingredients and probably added a liiittlee more garlic than instructed. Served on top of coconut rice. Super, super quick and easy recipe. And reheats well if you’re looking to meal prep! 100% I’m going to make this again. Oh! I used sesame oil instead of vegetable oil and sprinkled some almonds on top! Deeeeelicious!!

  118. I don’t know why I ever said anything before, but I love this recipe. I had another recipe I used which was almost identical for a few years, actually starting when I was cooking it for a pregnant person XD But I lost that one and I found this and it is the perfect replacement, maybe even a little better. I’ve probably made this 40 times now with different variations, and it never fails to please everyone ^_^

    I’m actually making a backup batch for tomorrow right now with some chili oil in it, because when my kid is at school lunch can get spicy :D

    Thanks for publishing it, it’s wonderful <3

  119. We really enjoyed this recipe. I forgot to grab an onion so I’m anxious to see what flavor that brings to the overall recipe. I’m also considering adding some red pepper flakes to add a kick. The whole family enjoyed.

    Best Beef and broccoli recipe I’ve made hands down! I will never search for another beef and broccoli recipe again!

  121. 4 stars
    A nice easy recipe but too salty. I tried the lime juice but still salty. I think I would us half the soy sauce and replace with water. Otherwise, very good.

  122. This turned out way too salty and yes I used low sodium soy sauce. Maybe it’s the brand that is throwing mine and others recipe off. What brand of low sodium sauce should be used? Any ideas what I can add to reduce the salty flavor once it’s already cooked? I’d hate to have to throw out the rest.

    1. Hi Erin! I use Kikkoman low-sodium soy sauce. Any sort of acidic component will cut the saltiness, such as fresh lime juice.

  123. 5 stars
    I am a vegetarian and used this recipe, as I do so many, by omitting the beef and using more veg – broccoli, onion, green pepper and mushrooms. I doubled the sauce and used tofu instead (next time I will use Gardein beef chunks). I used this as the basis and tweaked ever so slightly – Used a combo of fresh and dried ginger (had to make up for what I didn’t have on hand), prob more garlic than this and eye-balled the brown sugar, but used relatively the amounts noted. I used a 50/50 combo of soy sauce, braggs liquid amino’s and added about 1/4 cup of mushroom ‘oyster’ sauce. Added a little extra water at some point into the stir fry. While I dredged the tofu in the starch/water mixture, I was impatient in frying the tofu to be nice and crisp, but did fry it first and added it back at the end. We ate it over rice and ramen noodles.

    I received the BEST compliment on this from my husband: “Wow. That was so good. We haven’t been able to get this flavor in any take out here (LA), and this is just like Long Island Chinese take-out.”

    (that’s a good thing)

  124. 5 stars
    I’m known for being a non cook! In fact for Christmas dinner I was asked to bring crescent rolls But not prepare them. So imagine my surprise when I was able to prepare this and my husband, when asked, said it was as good as the delivered beef and broccoli we had last month! If I can prepare it successfully anyone can!

  125. 5 stars
    Delicious! I don’t eat meat, but followed this recipe using rehydrated soy curls. It was absolutely delicious. I added a tablespoon of homemade BBQ sauce to the marinade, just for an additional kick of flavor.

    Excellent flavor and texture. I like the broccoli a little on the crisp side and it came out perfectly. I will definitely be making it again however I’d go light on the brown sugar.

    OMG! This is best Beef and Broccoli I’ve ever had! Yes, it was easy and quick – but it sure tasted like I slaved for hours. The flavors were just perfect! I am WOWED and will make this for company! Going to go after a few more of these Asian recipes now that I know how delicious they are!! THANK YOU!!!!!

  131. 3 stars
    Tried making this recipe with regular soy sauce. It was way too salty, the vegetables absorbed all the salt. I wish you provided directions on substituting with regular soy sauce, since that is all I had on hand. I will definitely be making this again with less soy sauce.

  132. 3 stars
    I’m not sure what I did, but it was so salty! I didn’t add any salt. I think it could be 5 stars if I figure that out.

    Made the dish according to the recipes but I doubled it, forgot to get fresh ginger but the family enjoyed it! Will make this dish again

  135. 5 stars
    I made it according to your recipe, with a bit less ginger, a bit more garlic, a touch of sesame oil in the sauce and a shake or two of hot pepper flakes when all combined (household tastes). It was a huge hit! Everybody went back for seconds. Clean plates and compliments. Will definitely make again. Thank you!

  136. 4 stars
    Turned out really good! I did think I was a little too salty even with the reduced sodium soy sauce, so next time I might dilute it a bit with some water and maybe use a little sesame oil for some extra flavor, but other than that, it’s a great recipe! Quick and easy to make.

  137. 5 stars
    Really good. Use low sodium soy. My wife thought it was too salty, and we’ll also reduce the ginger by half

    The healthiest and easiest beef and brocoli iv tried and the taste is not compromised if anything, better!

  140. I love this Beef and Broccoli. It is so easy and I have even made this with left over ribeye and it was yummy.

    Great! HOWEVER, ginger can vary wildly in potency. Start off with 1/2 teaspoon first. I used very little ginger and it was more than enough.

  142. 5 stars
    Absolutely delicious! Used fresh ginger and garlic. The only thing I did differently was replaced 1T oil with 1T sesame oil. I also used Truly brown sugar vs regular brown sugar.

    A friend gave me a wok and so I wanted to make something simple. So I cooked the Easy Beef and Broccoli and I loved it. The first time I was skeptical that I couldn’t do it, but I did and it was great. The 2nd time it was fabulous. I got the feel of the wok.
    Thank you for this fabulous recipe.

  148. Thank you for a beef broccoli recipe with no oyster sauce. The husband and 15 yrs old gave a thumbs up! I added sliced carrots because I did not have enough broccoli. And only used half the sauce.

  149. 5 stars
    Delicious, easy, so so tasty. I added some ginger to sauté. I also followed the rice cooking steps and it made beautiful rice. Thank you!!

    I was excited thanks to the plentiful positive reviews, however, I was pretty disappointed with the outcome. The 1/2 cup of soy cause, even light sodium, was entirely too much and needs much more than 1/3 cup of brown sugar to balance the salt. Next time, I would dredge the beef with 1 part cornstarch, 1 part flour because all the crispy coating just fell off the meat after sauteeing. I should have also listened to another reviewer and added some beef stock to the sauce as it was a little thick for my liking. I would try it again, but with many modification.

    Don’t think I’m crazy but my stove went kaput and while waiting to receive a delivery of the new stove cooking was a challenge. I had a toaster oven a microwave the outdoor grill and a rice cooker. Anyway I had a large piece of London broil from the grill ( lastnights meal) I had broccoli and all the ingredients to make your what turned out to be a delicious Beef and Broccoli. I have never cooked a meal in a microwave we only use it for reheating. I think having the beef already cooked was what made it so successful. I cooked each thing separately .. Cut the steak thinly .. steamed the broccoli with just a bit of water.. “sautéed” the onions I added the garlic in with them also I thought the garlic may not cook in the sauce.. I used a little butter and a splash of olive oil s&p in a covered bowl zapped it for 5 min stirred and then another 4 min. While not carmelized they softened to a nice sweet consistency. I then mixed all the sauce ingredients minus the garlic in a glass measuring cup and zapped it for 4 min it’s thickened right up I then added some broth til I liked the consistency.. I tossed everything together and the hot sauce was enough to warm up the room temp beef. I’m rambling but this was so delicious( my son said it was better then take out) I can’t wait to try it again when my new stove comes! This recipe is a definite go to from now on so easy… great weeknight meal. Thanks

  153. Forgot the bunch of broccoli when at grocer so used frozen, defrosted for 3 minutes in microwave then spread out on paper towels to dry. Cooked up beautifully and recipe was delicious. No more take out and so much faster than take out too! Thanks

    After cooking the beef there is generally some cornstarch caked onto the bottom of the wok, so I deglaze it off with a splash of red wine before stir-frying the vegetables. It adds to the flavor and makes the pan easier to clean afterwards.

  158. 5 stars
    Just made this tonight. Used a sirloin steak instead of flank (it’s what I had on hand). I also added about a teaspoon of dark sesame oil to the sauce (I just like the nutty flavor it adds). Super easy and tasty! This will go into my keeper file. Thanks for a great recipe!

    Had to double the recipe for my large family. Added a little sesame oil towards the end. Big hit everyone loves it. Easy to follow. Thank you.

    Excellent, a big hit with the family! I used tri-tips sliced thin across the grain and took your advice about blanching the broccoli. The only changes I would make for our taste is a little bit less brown sugar and soy sauce. Thanks for the dinner win!

  163. 4 stars
    The taste was great. Especially since I added sriracha to the sauce. My family likes it spicy!
    *Technique: next time I will add all 3 tablespoons of starch to the sauce mixture NOT the meat. That should sear on it’s own.

  164. Made with noodles not rice. I found it a truffle sweet and salty for my taste, but that is easily modified with less sugar and replace some of the soy sauce with water. (Keep the volume the same to keep the right amount of sauce for your starch). But an excellent easy stir fry for weeknight dinners.

  165. Is there a link to print out the recipe/directions? It is such an inconvenience to have to watch a video to find out what ingredients are needed and how to make.

    Great recipe! My dad absolutely loved it and so did I. I’m quite young and am starting to expand my culinary experience and this was a great start. Very easy to follow and fun. Thank you for sharing it!

    1. Hi Jennifer – I’ve never tried this recipe in a slow cooker so I can’t say with certainty if it would work. Let me know if you give it a shot!

  169. I’m sorry, but this was horrible! We couldn’t eat it. SSSOOO salty, even with the low sodium soy sauce.I don’t understand the concept of mixing the water with the cornstarch and then having the beef in it. All it did was stick to the sides of my wok. I am NOT a novice cook. And I thought would try someone else’s recipe. Decided on this one because of the reviews and ratings. Won’t make that mistake again.

    Great recipe, my dad says it’s just like takeout! Would like a little more flavouring and spice, but otherwise excellent : )

  173. Instead of using blank steak I used beef stew meat (2 packages), 2 packages of frozen broccoli, frozen onions and powdered ginger.

    1. Hi there! I’ve never tried substituting a different ingredient for the cornstarch so I can’t say for certain what the outcome would be. Let me know if you give it a shot!

    Made this with Gardein brand beefless tips for a vegetarian version and added green bell pepper. Girrrrl!! So good!

  175. This was very good but a little too sweet for my taste buds. Will try this again but will reduce brown sugar to 2 Tbs.

    The recipe was fantastic! I added 1/4 cup of lemon juice which diluted the sauce a bit. It added some zest bit lost some bite. I would recommend only adding lemon juice if you intend to add jalopeño or red pepper to spice it up

  177. This was a quick, easy, and delicious recipe. My mother and I really enjoyed it. I’m going to share this recipe with my daughters. Thanks for this great meal.

    1. Hi Dionne! This recipe actually calls for vegetable oil but feel free to swap in whatever oil you have on hand as it won’t drastically change the outcome, just the flavor a bit. :)

  178. By golly it works!!. I love cooking and decided today to try my hand at beef and broccoli and it turned out really tasty. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
