Prep: 20Cook: 20Total: 40 minutes
Yield 8 servings 1x


  • 12 oz broccoli
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 small onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 lb flank steak, sliced into strips
  • optional: rice to serve
  • sesame seeds


  • 1/2 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder (or cornstarch)


  1. In a large saute pan or dutch oven, add broccoli and water. Let broccoli steam about 4 minutes until slightly tender but still crisp.
  2. Remove broccoli and set aside in a bowl.
  3. Prepare sauce ingredients now but whisking all together in a bowl.
  4. To the dutch oven, add oil over high heat. Once warm, add onions and cook 2-3 minutes until softened slightly.
  5. Add in grated ginger, garlic, and sliced steak. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until outside of steak is no longer pink (inside will still be pink).
  6. Add broccoli back to dutch oven, and then pour the sauce on top of everything.
  7. Mix everything up and let cook over high heat for 4-6 minutes or until sauce has thickened. It should be bubbling. Continue to stir occasionally. Turn off heat and serve!
