Beef + Broccoli are a match made in heaven! This easy weeknight dinner is full of protein. Not to mention the green broccoli goodness and sticky-sweet garlic and ginger flavor. It’s a family favorite around here. No need for takeout!

Sheet Pan Simplicity meets Homemade Takeout

I try and work a simple sheet pan dinner into our weekly meal plan each week. It’s a fun challenge to take a classic dish (that I know my kids like) and adapt it to this simple method of weeknight cooking. Beef + Broccoli was a perfect recipe for this adaptation. I was able to take easy-to-find ingredients and make a simple sauce to toss on a sheet pan and Voila! Dinner is served.

This recipe is simple for weeknights when you’re tempted to just order takeout. You can serve your family a quick and flavorful new favorite! This meal can satisfy a family of four, provide two tasty servings of veggies, and be cleaned up all before the delivery would have been at your door. 

Tools to make this recipe easier

Tip: My favorite rice cooker speeds up the whole process! I just pour a cup of jasmine rice in and click the button. You can find my full review of my rice cooker here. One tip I swear by is cooking my rice in broth vs. water for an extra boost of flavor.

A non stick sheet pan, like this one, will become one of your best friends in the kitchen. Your prep time, cook time, and time spent doing the dishes are significantly cut. More time for you to savor your food, play with the kids, or catch up on some much needed sleep! (always what I’m hoping for!)

Pantry Friendly Recipe

One of the things I love most about this recipe is that I almost always have the ingredients on hand and at the ready. When I plan to make this dish I usually only have to add fresh broccoli, a red bell pepper, and steak to my shopping list…everything else I have tucked in my pantry.

The secret to achieve that classic Beef + Broccoli flavor is to marinate the meat in pantry staples like soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, brown sugar, ginger, and garlic. This marinade is also reduced to a sauce to drizzle over our completed dish, achieving this simple and satisfying Asian bite. 

Cutting corners without sacrificing flavor can be a tricky balance. One worthwhile shortcut is utilizing pre-portioned and frozen ginger and garlic!

Dynamite Flavor with Simple Asian Flair

The best part of this recipe is just how delicious the beef is. The simple marinade/sauce really does a number on the steak resulting in big flavor after manageable prep. I also like the addition of the red pepper to the broccoli for both color, flavor, and texture. For years I only associated Beef + Broccoli with takeout or delivery. The flavor is so dynamite that I’m up for minimal prep in the kitchen to get this awesome homemade result.

Beef and broccoli is bold and big and just all-around delicious anytime. It’s saucy rich meat, with tender-crisp veggies, and fresh, feel-good flavor. Sign me up!
