You’re going to love the flavor of this Low Carb Beef and Broccoli. It’s a simple and easy recipe that pairs healthy veggies with a good source of protein. It’s a fast weeknight dinner for the family!
I love using sirloin steak for different types of recipes. While you can easily cook steak as it is, why not spruce it up a bit and add in some veggies as well?
When I’m needing to add some green vegetables to our diet, this is one of my go-to recipes.
Broccoli is always a go-to choice because it’s packed with nutrition. Every serving of broccoli is filled with fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K, iron, and potassium. It also has more protein than many other vegetables.
I think it’s safe to say that it’s always a hit when I make it as well. Judging from the empty plates, everyone gobbles it all up!
I also think that this recipe is great for leftovers, too. The flavor of the ingredients tends to get better as they sit overnight. If you’re lucky enough to have some remaining, enjoy each and every bite!
Low Carb Beef and Broccoli
Once you realize how simple it is to cook steak this way, you’ll be adding this into your meal planning rotation a lot more often. You can even change up the added ingredients if you have someone in the family that isn’t a fan of onions.
One simple swap is to use bell peppers or even fresh jalapenos if you want to kick up the heat! For a more colorful dish you can add several different types of peppers.
The options are endless in how you can easily tailor this keto beef and broccoli to you and your family’s needs.
What You Need To Make Low Carb Beef and Broccoli
(See recipe card below for quantities and full instructions.)
- thinly sliced sirloin steak
- onion, sliced
- broccoli florets
- olive oil
- raw honey
- soy sauce (or coconut aminos if you want to reduce the sodium)
- xantham gum (or cornstarch if you’re not concerned about the additional carbs)
- beef broth
- ground ginger powder
- minced garlic
- sesame seeds (optional for garnish)
- green onion, chopped (optional for garnish)
How To Make Keto Beef & Broccoli
In a bowl, combine honey, soy sauce, ginger powder, and minced garlic and whisk together. Place aside.
Sprinkle xantham gum over the slices of steak, and using tongs, make sure all beef is coated.
Get a skillet preheated on medium-high heat and add olive oil. Transfer beef to skillet but be sure not to overcrowd the pan (you will likely need to cook 1/2 the beef mixture at a time). Let the meat cook for around 2 and a half minutes per side until browned and then transfer to a plate to rest.
Keep the skillet on the heat and turn it to high. Quickly pour in the broth to deglaze for around 1 and a half minutes. Toss in the sliced onion and florets and cook for 3 minutes, stirring to combine everything.
Take the sauce that you set aside earlier and add it into the skillet, as well as the beef again. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for another 4 minutes, being sure to combine everything until sauce thickens.
Is sirloin steak hard to chew?
The cut of steak can be chewy but this is why you want to cut the steak into thin strips. This helps with the chewiness factor and makes the meat more tender.
What is the texture of the broccoli in this recipe?
Since you’re only cooking the broccoli in the skillet for a short amount of time, the broccoli is going to have some crunch to it.
If you’re not a fan of the crunch of broccoli, you can always saute it for longer than the recipe calls for.
Can you freeze broccoli and steak?
This recipe is best stored in the fridge and eaten within 2-3 days of cooking it. I don’t recommend freezing it but you can try if you’d like.
