Is anyone else still 5 years old on the inside and likes to pronounce broccoli like that or is that just me?

Maybe don’t answer that.

I hope you’re not getting lost among the sea of paleo orange chicken, firecracker pineapple chicken and mango chicken, ‘cause I am sure there will be more takeout inspired recipes SOON!

Healthy Swaps in this Recipe 

For this keto broccoli and beef, I decided to switch out some of the traditional ingredients to make it a bit better for you. When you switch out ingredients for healthier ones, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice taste, texture OR flavor! Here are the simple changes I made:

Coconut Aminos: Instead of soya sauce, I used coconut aminos for this recipe. It’s soy, wheat, and gluten free, making it the perfect substitution for soya sauce when cooking for people with dietary needs.Reduced- sodium Beef Broth: A little less salt if you’re trying to cut down! Cauliflower rice: This delicious, nutritious, low-carb option is great for those following the keto diet or just wanting to cut down on carbs a bit. Check out how to make cauliflower rice for some simply ways to whip it up!

Keto Beef and Broccoli Recipe FAQ

What makes this recipe Keto?This delicious broccoli and beef recipe is Keto partly because it is loaded with protein- the beef broth and beef slices are full of it. It is also recommended to be served over cauliflower rice which is a low carb alternative to white rice.

What cuts of beef are best to use for Beef and Broccoli?This might be up for debate, but I personally think that flank steak or skirt steak are your best bet for stir frying and making beef and broccoli. One tip I would give, though, it just make sure you slice them across the grain or you will end up with tough beef! Slice it thin and these cuts will cook in a JIFFY.
