Make the sauce

In a small bowl, stir together the sauce ingredients.

Tester tip: If you like things saucy, double the amount of sauce ingredients.
Make the beef and broccoli

In a large pot with a steamer insert or a wok in which you’ve set a bamboo steamer, bring 2 to 3 inches (5 to 8 cm) of water to a boil. Add the broccoli to the steamer and cook until almost but not quite tender, 5 to 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, warm the coconut oil. Add the ginger and cook, stirring, for about 1 minute.

Add the beef to the skillet and cook, without stirring for the first several seconds until it takes on a deeply browned coating. Then continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the beef is cooked to the desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes total.

Add half of the broccoli to the skillet and pour the sauce over it. Adjust the heat to maintain a steady simmer and stir until the sauce has thickened, about 8 minutes.

Divvy the remaining broccoli among serving plates and pile the flank steak and broccoli mixture over it. Serve immediately, sprinkled with sesame seeds, if desired.

Recipe Testers' Reviews

Great family pleasing recipe! This keto beef and broccoli was easy to make and came together very quickly. Everyone in my family liked it and most of the ingredients were already in my pantry. It would make a nice and simple weeknight dinner with plenty of flavor but not any major work to get it all together.

I used low-sodium soy sauce from Trader Joes, cornstarch, and a couple of pinches of coconut palm sugar. I served it with rice and added some Sriracha and it was great!

Loved the simplicity of this dish and how flavourful it was. I'd actually double the sauce (if using soy sauce, be sure to use low sodium as it can be a little salty otherwise) as I wanted more to serve on steamed rice. This would work well with other vegetables as well...I’m thinking bok choy.
