Asian Beef & Broccoli

Going keto was one of the best decisions I ever made for my health. It was pretty easy to let go of most of the foods that I knew were tasty, once I embraced that they really just didn’t work for my overall health. But, one of the hardest give-ups for me when going keto was Chinese take-out. Even if you order something that is essentially meat and vegetables, there is likely sugar, or some other sweetener in there that is a no go if you want to stay in ketosis. Now, with this delicious and simple keto Asian beef and broccoli recipe, I can fix my cravings for take-out, and maintain a low carb lifestyle.

One of my favorite things about this beef and broccoli recipe, besides the taste of course, is that there is so little cleanup. Since you mix up your ingredients in a Ziplock bag, you are left with a skillet, cutting board, knife, and a spoon or spatula. This recipe is so fast to cook, and clean up, that I can usually have it done, start to finish in less time than it would take me to order take-out and go pick it up. I don’t know about you, but I am busy, and appreciate every moment that I can save. Especially when those moments can be saved for relaxing.



This is a great meal any time of the year too! I love having a go to favorite, that isn’t seasonal. Chili in August, not so much. Gazpacho in January, nah. But a low carb beef and broccoli recipe in August or January, thank you, I think I will. Since I obviously have to forgo the rice with this meal, I have served it on the side of a big Asian salad filled with leafy greens, and I have served it on top of lightly sautéed zucchini noodles, chow mein style. It has been delicious every way that I have served it, but my boyfriend prefers it with the zucchini noodles. I think I might agree too. I love fixing a bowl with zucchini noodles, and this keto Asian beef and broccoli recipe, snuggling into the couch, watching some Netflix, and just relaxing. It feels like an indulgent night, but is totally on point with a low carb lifestyle.

It is a simple meal with so many possibilities too. Play around with it. Try it with different low carb sides. Add some hot peppers if you like it spicy. It is customizable to your taste and skill level. I have even made it with chicken a few times. It was yum. No matter how I play around with it, it is always my favorite low carb beef and broccoli recipe. Except of course when I make it with chicken. Then it is my fave chicken and broccoli take-out inspired recipe. Forget about the cardboard containers with who knows what in the sweet mystery sauce. This is the perfect alternative. You will love it, and your special someone will probably love it too.

Instructions
  1. Chop beef into bite size pieces.
  2. In a ziploc bag, sprinkle 1.5 tsp ginger, 1.5 tsp garlic powder and 1/4 cup soy sauce. Close ziploc bag and mix marinade together.
  3. Add chopped beef. Allow to marinade for 1 hour.
  4. Cut broccoli into large size florets.
  5. About 10 minutes before beef is finished marinading, cook broccoli with coconut oil in skillet covered at medium heat. Cook for about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Add marinated beef and cook for another 10-15 minutes, stirring beef and broccoli together.
  7. Near the end there will be a lot of liquid in the skillet. Sprinkle in almond flour and psyllium husk powder and mix into liquid and beef and broccoli. This should soak up a lot of the reserved liquid in only a few minutes.
