Healthy Broccoli Beef

Who doesn’t love Chinese food?! I sure do – BUT, I don’t love the sodium, oils and everything else those dishes are typically packed/cooked with. I put a healthier, just as flavorful spin on the traditional broccoli beef with noodles! This healthy broccoli beef is a perfect entree to cook in bulk to use for meal prep & is definitely a family favorite!

Healthy Broccoli Beef

  • 1 package chow mien noodles (I used Chuka Soba brand)

  • 6 oz. lean beef, thinly sliced

  • 2 C broccoli, chopped and steamed

  • 2 TBSP. olive oil

  • 1/4 C liquid aminos or low sodium soy sauce

  • 1 TBSP. garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp. ground ginger

  • 1-2 tsp. rice vinegar

  1. Cook the chow mien noodles per directions on the label. Drain noodles and set aside.

  2. Microwave or steam the chopped broccoli. Cooking times may vary depending on how firm/soft you like your broccoli.

  3. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together liquid aminos, garlic, ginger and vinegar. Set aside.

  4. In a medium skillet or grill, cook your beef. (It’s best to use just pepper, as you will get plenty of flavor from the sauce)

  5. Once the beef has been fully cooked, place on cutting board and let it rest for a couple minutes. Then thinly slice.

  6. In a medium skillet, add 2 TBSP. olive oil on medium-high heat and add the cooked noodles. You will “sautée” the noodles for approximately 4-6 minutes.

  7. Add the thinly sliced beef and steamed broccoli and pour sauce overtop.

  8. Mix together & cook for an additional 5 minutes.

  9. Serve and garnish with toasted sesame seeds and green onion.

Cooking Tips:

You can use any cut of lean beef for this recipe; we typically use flank steak because it's a more affordable cut of beef and most folks have access to it at their local grocery stores.

Bragg's Liquid Aminos is a source of amino acids from soybeans. It contains 16 of the 20 amino acids. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, making is a great alternative to soy sauce. If you don't have liquid aminos, use can certainly use low sodium soy sauce.
