Paleo and gluten free beef and broccoli

I know everyone is busy so I thought I would share this super tasty Beef and Broccoli Take-Out Fake-Out recipe that you can have on the table in no time flat. This is a great recipe when you are craving Chinese food but don’t want to go out (if there’s a gluten free Chinese place near you that is… which there aren’t a lot of!) and don’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. It’s quick, easy, healthy, and extremely flavorful – exactly what I look for on a busy weeknight 🙂

Some beef and broccoli recipes are totally bland and soggy, but this recipe is made with fresh crisp-tender broccoli, marinated and perfectly cooked flank or sirloin steak, and an extremely flavorful sauce. Also, we like our beef and broccoli with a hint of sweet – that’s just how we roll- but if you prefer, you can certainly leave out the coconut palm sugar 🙂

A lot of times we eat this recipe as-is, but it can also be served with cauliflower rice, quinoa (shown above), or rice. So good!

  • 1 1/2 - 2 Lb. Flank Steak or Sirloin Steak cut into 1/4-inch bite-sized strips
  • 2 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos for Paleo or Gluten Free Soy Sauce
  • 6-7 C Chopped Broccoli Florets about 2 medium-sized heads of broccoli
  • 5 Cloves Garlic peeled and minced
  • 1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil + 2 tsp. if needed
  • Sesame Seeds for garnish


  • 3/4 C Filtered Water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Fish Sauce
  • 3 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos or gluten free soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Sesame Oil
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. Sherry Cooking Wine
  • 2 Tbsp. Erythritol or coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. Arrowroot or Tapioca Flour


  1. Place meat in a large bowl along with rice vinegar and coconut aminos. Toss to combine. Allow to marinade for 10 minutes or up to one hour.
  2. Meanwhile, fill a large pot halfway full of water, bring to boil. Add the broccoli florets and boil 2 - 3 minutes, or until desired tenderness. Drain and set aside.
  3. Prepare the sauce: Whisk all sauce ingredients together until combined in a large bowl and set aside.
  4. Once steak has finished marinating, melt 1 Tbsp coconut oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add meat in a single layer. Do not overcrowd pan, cook in batches if needed. Cook until bottom is browned, then flip over and cook until just cooked through, about 3 or 4 minutes. Set meat aside. Note- If your pan is burned on the bottom like mine was, rinse it out with room temperature water and scrub out all the burned pieces. Return pan to heat and add 2 tsp. coconut oil.
  5. Add the garlic to skillet and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  6. Add the sauce, broccoli, and meat, Stir to combine.
  7. Continue stirring for 1-2 more minutes, or until sauce comes to a simmer and thickens.
  8. Remove from heat. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
