- cutting board
- chefs knife
- cast-iron 12" skillet (cast iron is my favorite!)
- measuring spoons
- dry measuring cups
- liquid measuring cups
- serving bowl
- salad forks
- ¾ tsp xanthan gum (keto-friendly), or ½ tbsp cornstarch
- ¼ cup olive oil + 2 tsp
- 4 cups broccoli florets
- 2 lbs beef, (sirloin steak or eye of round) cut into ¼" slices.
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 3 tsp ginger paste
- ½ cup coconut aminos sauce (keto-friendly), tamari (keto-friendly), or soy sauce
- ½ cup erythritol brown sugar (keto-friendly), or regular brown sugar
- 3 tsp sesame oil
- ½ tsp red pepper flakes
- 5 scallions, diagonally sliced 1" pieces
- ½ tbsp sesame seeds
How To Make Mongolian Broccoli and Beef
In a small bowl dissolve xanthan gum in 2 tsp olive oil and set aside (1). In a covered microwave-safe dish, steam broccoli florets with ¼ cup water, 3 to 4 minutes until they are crisp-tender when pierced with a fork. Drain water and set aside (2).
Season steak with salt and pepper. Heat ¼ cup olive in a large skillet over medium-high heat until pan is hot. Lay slices of meat in the skillet so they are flat. Cook meat until brown, turn over and brown the other side (cook approx. 2 minutes per side) (3). Do not overcrowd the pan, work in small batches if you have to. Set meat slices aside and cover with foil.
Add garlic to the skillet and saute 1 minute or until fragrant. Add ginger paste, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, and xanthan gum mixture (4). Stir until the sauce starts to thicken. Turn off heat, add beef (plus juices), broccoli, scallions, and sesame seeds (5). Stir until combined (6).
- Make sure your pan is very hot, but the oil is not smoking. Place the beef in a little at a time to sear. Once it is seared, turn over and brown. Immediately remove from pan. The beef slices should only be cooking about 2 minutes on each side.
- If you couldn't get your beef to brown - don't worry. The dish will still taste good! It is better to take the beef out of the pan rather after 2 minutes per side than overcooking the beef.
