Beef ‘n Broccoli

  • 1 and 1/2 pounds meat, thinly sliced against the grain (oyster steaks or shoulder meat are great options) or pre-sliced stir fry meat

  • 2 tablespoons Heaven & Earth Coconut Aminos or tamari sauce

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons oil, divided

  • 6 cups fresh or frozen checked broccoli, such as Beleaves

  • sesame seeds, for garnish (optional; omit for Passover)


  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced or 4 cubes Gefen Frozen Garlic

  • 2 teaspoons Rorie’s Arrowroot Starch (optional, for thickness)



Place meat strips into a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Toss with coconut aminos. Marinate at room temperature while preparing the remaining elements.


Prepare the broccoli: Bring a pot of water to boil. Blanch broccoli for about three minutes. If desired, plunge broccoli into an ice bath to stop the cooking process. Transfer broccoli to colander to drain; ensure that all excess water has drained off before adding broccoli to skillet in step 4.


Meanwhile, prepare the sauce: In a small mixing bowl, whisk together sauce ingredients until smooth. Optionally, dissolve two teaspoons arrowroot starch in 1/4 cup warm water and add to sauce. Set aside.


In a skillet or cast-iron pan, heat one tablespoon oil. Sear beef in one layer without disturbing it for one to two minutes; turn meat and sear an additional 30 seconds. (Ideal cook time will vary depending on meat’s thickness; do not overcook or meat will be tough.)


Reduce heat to low. Add sauce; stir to distribute. Cook for two minutes, just until sauce thickens slightly. Add broccoli; toss to coat in sauce.


Serve over rice, quinoa, cauliflower rice, or celery root rice. Garnish with sesame seeds.


The thinner the meat, the faster it will cook and the juicier it will be.
