20-Minute Beef & Broccoli Stir-fry Recipe Is Better Than Takeout

"We’re all about one-pan skillet meals over here! I love how quickly they come together and clean up is just as quick," says Rachel Maser, mom of four and founder/creator of the clean eating blog, Clean Food Crush®.

"This stir fry is as simple as it gets, for those nights that you really want to just order take-out, but then you realize that you can actually get this on the table quicker than delivery or driving to grab take-out. Then afterward you feel SO GOOD knowing that you invested the 15 to 20 minutes needed to get something highly nutritious (and tasty) on the table."

Cuisine: Asian / American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Servings: 4 


  • 1 large head broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 pound sirloin steak, fat trimmed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons fajita seasoning
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 3 fresh garlic cloves, pressed

For Serving

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Place the broccoli and red bell pepper into a large skillet or wok and pour in 1/2 cup water. Cover the pan and steam over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, just until bright green. Remove vegetables from the pan and set aside.
  2. Very carefully remove any remaining water from the pan with a paper towel. Add in the oil and preheat over high heat. Add the steak and sprinkle with the seasoning. Stir fry for 2 to 3 minutes, or until it begins to char.
  3. Return the broccoli and peppers back into the skillet. Add the garlic. Continue to stir fry for just a couple of minutes more. Spoon on top of brown rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice, if desired. Garnish with cilantro leaves, sesame seeds and serve with coconut aminos and lime wedges.
