Ok, so I love Chinese takeout as much as the next chick, but what I do not adore is all of the unnecessary sodium, sugar, and carbs. Or the feeling of hunger that ultimately hits about an hour after finishing my meal. 

Enter this healthier version of the classic Beef and Broccoli stir fry. It’s easy to put together, it tastes amazing, and it doesn’t make me look and feel fluffy and swollen, which is always a bonus. 

Is Beef And Broccoli Keto Friendly?

The traditional Beef and Broccoli recipe (like you’d get from Panda Express or PF Changs) is not low carb, keto, or remotely healthy, but this recipe is! The original version contains extra sugar as well as cornstarch – and neither are keto-friendly.

Main Ingredients 

1 lb beef (sirloin, skirt steak, or flank steak) – I use sirloin because a) I can typically find it easily and it is budget-friendly) 

1 to 2 heads broccoli, broken into florets (or pre-cut bagged) 

2-3 cloves garlic, minced

2 pieces thin sliced ginger, finely chopped

Olive oil or Ghee 

Sesame seeds (optional, for garnish) 

Chopped scallions (optional, for garnish) 

Marinade 

For this Keto Beef and Broccoli to be on point, you do need to marinate the slices of beef for at least 15 minutes. Here’s what you need.

4 tbsp coconut aminos 

1 tbsp + 2.5 tsp sesame oil

1 tbsp red boat fish sauce

1/2 tsp sea salt

1 tsp, freshly grated fresh ginger

3 minced garlic cloves

1/2 tsp black pepper (divided)

1/4 tsp baking soda 

¼ tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

Is Fish Sauce Keto-Friendly?

Yes! Red boat fish sauce is a Vietnamese fish sauce that pro chefs often use to create that elusive fifth flavor-umami. Made with black anchovy and sea salt. It has no added msg or preservatives. Per tablespoon red boat fish sauce has 15 calories, 4 grams of protein, 0 carbs, and 0 sugar. It is gluten-free and keto-friendly.  

Tips For Making Keto Beef And Broccoli

Marinade for at least 15 minutes.

Use a ceramic wok or stainless skillet and make sure you pre-heat it. Regardless of what type of pan you use it needs to be hot 

Don’t put too much steak in at once. If you overcrowd the pan, your steak will not get a good sear.

Sear the beef for around 2 minutes and then flip and sear for about 30 seconds. If you move the steak too much, it will not sear as well.

Swaps For Coconut Aminos

This recipe calls for coconut aminos, but if you don’t have these on hand or can’t find in the store, you may substitute with a gluten-free soy sauce or Tamari, but you’ll need to use half the amount as these come with a more robust, saltier flavor.  

How To Store & Freeze

If you have leftovers, they’ll be fine in the fridge for 3-4 days in an airtight container. For the freezer, store in a heavy-duty freezer bag for up to 3 months.
