High Protein Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry Recipe


Serving: 4 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Total time: 25 minutes


  • 1 pound Sirloin steak
  • 2 tablespoons Cornstarch, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 4 cups Broccoli florets, chopped
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable broth
  • 1/4 cup Soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Toasted sesame seeds (optional)


  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Slice the sirloin steak into thin strips against the grain to help with tenderness.
  3. Add the beef strips to a large plastic bag and pour 1 tablespoon of the cornstarch and the salt. Shake the bag to mix the ingredients until the beef is well coated.
  4. Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add the beef, and stir-fry for about 4 minutes until it is no longer pink. Remove the beef from the pan, place it in a bowl, and set aside.
  5. Add the garlic to the skillet or wok and cook for 1 minute until it is very aromatic but not burnt. Carefully add the water and the broccoli. Continue cooking the broccoli for 4 to 5 minutes until it is bright green and more tender.
  6. While the broccoli is cooking, whisk together well in a small dish the remaining 1 tablespoon of cornstarch with the vegetable broth and soy sauce. Add this soy sauce and the beef back to the skillet.
  7. Cook the entire mixture for an additional 1 to 2 minutes until the sauce thickens. Remove from the heat.
  8. Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with optional toasted sesame seeds.
