It’s 30 Minute Thursday again, and I don’t know about you but I’m super excited to get some more quick and easy recipes to try for those crazy weeknights.  Our evenings seem to be getting busier and busier as the school year goes on.  There’s hockey or soccer or diving or something almost every night.

When did my kids get big enough to be busy with all these sports?  That’s what I want to know.  Just yesterday they were tiny and a busy evening was …. well, I don’t think we had them.  The kids went to bed at 7 and we had the whole evening to ourselves.  And yet I somehow felt busy back then.  A different kind of busy I suppose – my days are a little less hectic now!

With those crazy evenings, I am loving quick and easy meals these days.  Especially ones that the whole family will eat, and eat without any complaints while fighting over who takes the leftovers for lunch the next day.  I’ve been really into making various types of takeout style food at home lately, and this easy beef and broccoli will be entering the regular rotation.  Along with my baked lemon chicken and chicken chow mein.  All amazing.  All better than takeout, but so easy to make that I wonder why we ever get takeout.

Quick and easy beef and broccoli.  It’s ready in less than 30 minutes and the whole family will love it.  Who needs takeout on a busy night?  This is definitely better!

If you’re looking for more easy 30 minute meals, there is a whole list below the recipe.  Hope you find something you’d like to try!

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 3-4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 1 pound flank steak, sliced thinly (1/4” thick) into 2” long strips
  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup shredded carrots

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the beef broth, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, corn starch, ginger and garlic. Set aside.
  2. In a large wok or non-stick skillet, heat the sesame oil over medium heat.
  3. Add the sliced steak to the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, flipping once, until browned all over.
  4. Add the prepared sauce and broccoli and stir to coat everything.
  5. Continue to cook for another 3-4 minutes until the broccoli is tender and the sauce has thickened slightly.
  6. If you have a lid you can cover it and just leave it for about 3 minutes and it will be done.
  7. Stir in the grated carrots and heat for about 30 seconds. Serve over hot rice.

Notes

Flank steak is delicious in this, but you can use any steak you like. I’ve also made it with sirloin or even a marinating steak. These photos were of a really inexpensive marinating steak and it was still amazing, so use whatever beef you like.
