Ground Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe (30 Minutes)

One of the all-time most popular take-out orders from Chinese American restaurants is beef and broccoli. And while it’s not an especially difficult dish to make at home, steak isn’t the most affordable ingredient. This smart beef and broccoli recipe calls for ground beef—not only is it a more affordable cut of meat, but it also absorbs the sauce’s flavors as it cooks.

The sauce is a great balance of aromatics from the garlic and ginger, with sweetness from the sugar and umami from the soy sauce. I love how the cornstarch in the sauce helps to thicken everything, allowing it to coat the meat and vegetables better.

If you love the flavors of beef and broccoli, whip up this quick, easy, and affordable version. Ready in only 30 minutes—just enough time to cook up some rice at the same time—it’s an ideal family meal.

Easy Variations

  • For a more colorful stir fry with extra nutrition, add extra veggies like diced bell peppers or carrots.
  • For even more flavor, swap the water for chicken or beef broth.
  • For an extra fast meal, buy packaged broccoli florets from the bagged produce section of the grocery store.
  • Add more fun toppings like cilantro and chopped peanuts.
