Ground Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

4 servings


13 minutes

total time


½ cup reduced sodium soy sauce (or gluten-free tamari)

1 tablespoon honey

4 cloves garlic (minced)

1 1-inch piece fresh ginger (peeled and grated)

1 tablespoon cornstarch

½ tablespoon sesame oil

1 pound ground beef (93% lean)

½ medium yellow onion (chopped)

1 large head broccoli (cut into florets and blanched*)

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

3 medium scallions (sliced on the bias)

cooked rice (or cauliflower rice, for serving, optional)


In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, honey, garlic, ginger, and cornstarch. Set aside.

Add the sesame oil to a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is just about cooked through, about 5 minutes.

Pour in the reserved sauce, stir to combine, and cook for 1 minute. Add the broccoli and cook for 1 more minute.

Divide mixture evenly among 4 plates or shallow bowls, layering rice first, if using.

Top each with sesame seeds and scallions.
