Gingery Broccoli and Beef

Gingery Broccoli and Beef (great for all phases)


olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 lb petite sirloin steak, cut into very thin strips
2 Tbs lemon juice
2 tsp freshly grated ginger
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 to 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
2 cups broccoli, cut into flowerets
2 cups carrots, thinly sliced (phase 4 only)
1 green onion, thinly sliced


Heat the 1/2 Tbs olive oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Add the sliced beef and 1/4 tsp sea salt, and brown. Remove beef from pan to a side dish, and get rid of excess juice left in pan.
In a small bowl mix lemon juice, grated ginger, freshly ground black pepper and red pepper flakes with 1/4 cup broth.
Heat pan again over medium heat. Add 1 tsp olive oil when pan is hot.
Add broccoli and carrots to pan. Pour liquid ingredients on top and toss to coat.
Cook over medium heat until broccoli is tender.
Return the beef to the pan and add the green onions. Add the extra chicken broth if preferred.

Stir beef in until it’s coated with sauce, and let simmer for a few minutes until beef warmed through.
