One of my favorite kinds of stir-fry to have is beef and broccoli. I some Asian sauces can use sugar, so I wanted to find a keto friendly version. Here is what I came up with and it tastes wonderful!
I also used this opportunity to try out my shirataki noodles, which believe it are not are 0 carb and almost 0 calorie! You can find out more about them here.
I split the recipe up into 4 servings, and each had 6 net carb (you can eliminate some by lowering the broccoli and using vinegar).
Recipe is after this jump!
1 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. minced ginger
1/2 cup chicken broth
1 tbsp. soy sauce
2 packets Splenda (about 1 tbsp.)
1 tsp. sriracha hot sauce (optional)
1/ 2 tsp. salt
1/ 4 tsp. pepper
1 1/ 2 tsp. lemon or lime juice
1/8 tsp. xanthan gum (optional – see recipe)
1 tbsp. fish sauce (may use vinegar of choice instead)
1 16oz bag frozen broccoli
2 6oz bag frozen steak strips
2 7oz bags shirataki noodles
1 tbsp. olive oil
1. Mix all ingredients of sauce and set aside.
2. I use frozen items, but you are more than welcome to use fresh. Heat the olive oil in the pan and toss with the frozen steak and broccoli until everything is COMPLETELY heated through (everything should be “hot”) and any liquid from them has simmered away. I have found putting a lid on my pot/pan helps speed this process up.
3. I use xanthun gum in my sauce as a non-starch thickener, but since we will be reducing the sauce you don’t need it, it will just take a tad longer to thicken up. Poor the sauce over the beef and broccoli mixture. Turn heat to high until sauce starts to boil then reduce the heat to a simmer. Simmer until sauce is reduced to a glaze consistency over the broccoli and beef.
4. While the sauce is reducing, empty both packages of noodles into a colander and rinse THOROUGHLY. The liquid the noodles are packed in can have a funk to it, but completely rinses away and they taste delicious when cooked.
5. Once noodles are completely rinsed and the sauce has finished reducing, place noodles into the stir-fry and mix well. I did this for about 3-4 minutes until the noodles heated through and have absorbed some of that saucey goodness!
