I love making take out dishes at home. Like my Easy Chicken Stir Fry and my Super Sticky Asian Chicken Bites. They taste so much better and are a lot healthier. I used low sodium soy sauce and low sodium beef broth for a lighter sauce. Best of all everything is cooked in one pot and comes together in less than 20 minutes!

This dish is rich, savory and saucey. You can use flank steak or chuck roast in this dish.

I cook the steak and broccoli separately to make sure they are both cooked perfectly. If you cook them together the steak with either be overcooked or the broccoli will still be hard. You can always blanch the broccoli beforehand but I find this method easier.

This dish is super easy to throw together. To make this Easy Beef and Broccoli start by sauteing your beef in a little bit of oil. I like to slightly under cook my meat because it will continue to cook when it gets added back into the pan. Next I saute my broccoli and then add in my garlic. While the broccoli is cooking I throw together my beef broth, soy sauce, brown sugar and cornstarch.

The sauce it simple yet so flavorful. The sauce is made of soy sauce, beef broth and sesame oil. The sauce gets nice and thick with a sprinkle of cornstarch.
