This healthy beef and broccoli recipe is a simple quick meal made with fresh squeezed orange juice flavored sauce. Top with a simple sprinkle of sesame seeds and your meal is ready in under 30 minutes.
You’re looking at a meal that I made twice this past week. Once for taste testing purposes, and the second time was to make sure I had a tasty bag lunch to bring to the office.
Healthy beef and broccoli recipe is on the table in 20 minutes!
Even though I say this dish can be ready in 30 minutes, I factored in the time I took to chase my furry felines out of the kitchen.
We pretty much inhaled this dish, which I make no apologies for. We were hungry and this is good!
Actually, if we were sitting at a dinner table together I wouldn’t want you to witness the way I grabbed a broccoli floret and mopped up the sauce with it. I couldn’t help myself.
Sometimes I don’t think we should bother plating our food. Why don’t we just grab forks and dive in?
I ate this healthy beef and broccoli just as you see it, but Alan ate his with sticky rice.
Next time I’ll serve this with my easy cauliflower fried rice!
- 2 crowns of broccoli florets
- 1/3 cup low sodium beef stock
- 1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice (1 large orange)
- 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided
- 1 pound beef sliced (flank steak, London broil)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- sesame seeds (optional)
This recipe is modified from Cooking Light. Alan and I spent his birthday weekend in Southern California and the Airbnb we rented was stocked with cookbooks. I wanted to take the book, but that wouldn’t be nice. Instead I took a photo of the recipe 🙂
