I made a lot of changes. I still love the recipe but felt it lacked a lot. I added carrots, onion, and fresh sliced garlic in addition to broccoli. I used some butter and double the amount of beef broth. Instead of using a lot of soy sauce, I used 1/2 cup of liquid amino instead of soy sauce and doubled the amount of brown sugar.
When I do this recipe again I will put onion and garlic in with the steak instead of waiting.
All in all, I like the basis of the recipe.
can you post the recipe you made?
Thought this recipe was delish as is. Asian beef and broccoli doesn’t typically have butter in it. And this recipe called for 5 cloves of garlic. I didn’t see a need to add more. I will try to the liquid aminos next time though.
Was very good. Make sure to use low sodium soy sauce. I would also recommend not cooking broccoli the entire 10 minutes. It was too soft and we like a bite to ours.
This was great. I did modify a little. I did season steak with salt and pepper and ginger. I also added Sesame seeds and red peppers in when cooking broccoli. We also topped with scallions. Definitely will make again.
Loved it!! Added some celery, onion and shredded carrot. Would definitely make again.
Tried this yesterday and added noodles. It is very easy and delicious.
I actually love the noodles more than the rice. Making this tonight. I try to make one Korean Dish a week. My Husband loves Korean food.
Way too sweet!
It was perfect!! Added some fresh ginger for a little extra flavor! Will definitely make it again!
Sooooo good! I added onions and about double the meat because we had extra steak. I would highly recommend.
This was easy and so delicious! I added onions and sliced shiitake mushrooms also. After it cooled down (when I was cleaning up) I tasted a spoonful of the sauce and it was so yummy! I will definitely make again.
Can this be saved for the next day to eat as a school lunch?
Very easy to make and everyone loved it!
I didn’t follow this recipe exactly. I added onion & bell pepper. It turned out delicious!!!
Made this tonight. We’ll keep this recipe but we thought it was too much soy sauce flavor and not much else. We added chili paste and hoisin, and served over rice. Easy to make.
Checks every week night box- easy, quick, delicious, has vegetables. Added red pepper flakes to add heat- otherwise perfect for those nights when I want good and quick. Thanks for sharing!
I made this tonight, exactly as written, and it was delicious! My husband said it is just as good as the dish at our favorite Chinese restaurant. Thanks so much!
Made this for the second time – quick, easy and delicious! Use lower sodium broth and soy. We had a bell pepper so added that with the broccoli. This time, we had ginger so I grated that into the marinade. A pinch of red pepper flakes adds the spice we like!
This was really tasty and easy to make. I used regular soy sauce and the dish ended up pretty salty. Definitely stick with the low sodium soy sauce that the recipe calls for.
Made this tonight! Better than any restaurant I’ve had!
Has anyone ever tried to replace the brown sugar with either coconut sugar or agave nectar?
I plan to do coconut sugar today and half it to just two TBS instead of 1/4cup.
I replaced the sugar with Swerve and it turned out great!
I made it with frozen brócoli and I loved out great recipe.
This sounds sooo good. Cant wait to try it. The ingredients just got added to my grocery list for tomorrows shopping. THANKS!
Awesome, hope you love it!! 🙂
This was a crazy good recipe. Will definitely make it again.
Was way to sweet for me if I made it would use 1/2 the brown sugar! It did say it was sweet but jut too !
Instead of corn starch, I used wheat flour.
Did this substitute work well for you?
