20-Minute Beef Broccoli Recipe: Steak With Broccoli & Onions Is a Delicious Budget-friendly Recipe by Dawn Taylor
My family loves Chinese food, but we all know about the excessive sodium and sugar most of our favorite dishes contain. I decided to throw something together from my pantry that would hopefully be just as yummy, but wouldn't contain as much salt and sugar. Success!
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
- 1/2 low-sodium beef broth
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons light brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- dash of Worcestershire sauce (try this homemade Worcestershire sauce recipe)
- dash of salt
- 1 pound chuck steak or flank steak, cut into small strips
- 1 large yellow onion, cut into strips
- 1 large broccoli bunch, cut into florets
Here's how to make it:
- Combine all the marinade ingredients. Divide into two bowls.
- Add a little olive oil to a large skillet. Brown the steak then remove from heat, placing in a bowl with half of the marinade.
- Add another splash of oil to pan and cook the onions and broccoli until slightly tender.
- Add the steak back into the pan and pour the reserved marinade into the pan. Continue to toss the steak and broccoli until they are thoroughly coated and cook until tender. Serve over rice or pasta.
- I like a lighter sauce so the taste of the meat and veggies come through, but if you want more just increase the broth and soy sauce.
- Add more vegetables if you want, then you have a stir fry!
- Use a bag of packaged and ready-to-cook broccoli florets for an even easier preparation.
- Toss the meat and vegetables often to avoid overcooking, and only do this for a minute or two.
