A bowl with beef and broccoli.

A super quick and deliciously easy keto beef and broccoli. Ready in just 20 minutes! The best in keto recipes are the ones that take the smallest amount of time to cook. Right?

I think most of us loved our Chinese takeout and this is one of my favourite keto-friendly Chinese meals.

Why We Love This Recipe

Why do we love it… easy it tastes great! The ingredients are easy to source. And the recipe is so versatile. Use your favourite protein. Keto Asian style recipes should be fast and easy to make. If we are not having takeout then we want it to be at least quick to prepare keto Chinese food at home.

The Ingredients

Small bowls of ingredients to make a str fry.

No need to make this difficult. The ingredients for an amazing homemade keto beef and broccoli is possibly in your pantry (and fridge) right now.

Broccoli or broccolini – I love broccolini it is so easy to use in stir-fries. It tastes great and looks great.

HOT TIP – If you chop the broccolini add the stems first and cook a little longer than the florets (the tree-like bits).

Coconut Aminos – are a great alternative for a gluten-free recipe and soy-free keto Asian dish. However, it is not available in all supermarkets. If you want to use something from the local grocer, use gluten-free soy sauce or gluten-free tamari in its place. It is a great condiment to have in the pantry to help create soy-free amazing low carb Chinese food at home.

Step by Step Instructions

Making this keto beef and broccoli stir fry is super easy. With just 3 steps you can make this in less than 20 minutes at home from beginning to end.

Sliced Beef on a cutting board.

Step 1. Slice the beef very thin. I use a very sharp knife for this.

HOT TIP. Place the beef in the freezer 30-45 minutes before you slice. This will make the meat firmer and able to slice much thinner. (The thinner the better).

Step 2. Heat the avocado oil in a wide-based frying pan or large wok over high heat and stir fry the beef in batches until browned.

Step 3. Add the broccolini (or broccoli stems) to the pan and the sauce ingredients. Sauté for 1-2 minutes then add the beef and broccoli florets to the pan.

Tips for Success and FAQs

Can I eat beef and broccoli on keto?

Yes of course. This keto beef and broccoli has had the gluten-filled sauces and cornflour thickener removed. It is a very healthy option for a deliciously healthy keto dinner.

Is beef and broccoli high in carbs?

Not really. This low carb beef and broccoli is only 6g net carbs. It could be reduced if you wanted to reduce the vegetables or swap the coconut aminos for beef broth.

What Chinese Food is Keto?

I believe a lot of your favourite Chinese takeout meals will be filled with sweeteners and thickeners. Lucky for you I have converted a lot of Chinese recipes to the keto diet.

I hate beef can I make this with another protein?

Sure can! Use chicken thigh fillets, tofu, white fish fillets or whatever protein you prefer.

Can I make Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry in my Thermomix?

You know I love to convert as many of my recipes to keto Thermomix recipes as I can. I would recommend using only the TM6 and the Sizzle function for Thermomix users or a thermal cooker like the Magimix Stir Fry function where the temperatures can get a lot higher.

Equipment

Ingredients 

  • 500 g (17 ⅔ oz) scotch fillet or any cut of beef you prefer
  • 1-2 tbsp (1 tbsp) avocado oil
  • 1 bunch (1 bunch) broccolini chopped or 1 cup broccoli florets, cut
  • 1 tsp (1 tsp) Vegemite or gluten-free fish sauce
  • 3 tbsp (3 tbsp) coconut aminos or gluten-free soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons (2 teaspoons) sesame oil
  • 1 tsp (1 tsp) ginger finely grated or ginger paste
  • 1 tsp (1 tsp) minced garlic
  • Optional cauliflower rice and sesame seeds to serve

Instructions

CONVENTIONAL METHOD

  • Slice the beef into thin strips.
  • Heat one tablespoon of avocado oil in a large wide base skillet over high heat. Brown the beef, in two separate batches over high heat until browned on both sides. (This is best done only turning the once and allowing plenty of space in the pan to avoid stewing the beef in its own juices). Remove the browned beef from the pan and set it aside.
  • Add an extra tablespoon of oil to the pan if needed. Add the chopped broccolini stems (if using) and stir to coat and sauté for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Season to taste.
  • Add the beef strips back to the pan and toss to combine and heat through. Serve with cauliflower rice (if preferred) and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

THERMAL METHOD (High heat models only – Cook Expert and TM6)

  • Slice the beef into thin strips. Set aside.
  • Place the oil into the mixer bowl; heat 2 min/120°C/stir/centre cap off.
  • Add half the beef to the mixer ensuring the strips are under the blades where possible. Set to high heat function and cook. Transfer cooked beef to a small bowl and repeat with the remaining beef.
  • Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl. Add to the mixer with all the remaining ingredients and the cooked beef; cook 2 min/100°C/reverse/stir. Serve with cauliflower rice (if preferred) and a sprinkling of sesame seeds.

Notes

INGREDIENTS

Any vegetables of choice can be used.
STORAGE
This recipe can be made ahead of time and served hot or cold.
