Keto Sichuan Beef and Broccoli

Before jumping to the recipe please note that the below information contains HOT TIPS for this recipe. We try and answer all your questions to guarantee a perfect keto recipe every time.

Let’s just begin by saying I am seriously putting up my hands to say this Sichuan Beef has to be one of the tastiest meals I have ever tasted!

Two of the funniest things about that are, firstly I am not a huge “steak” consumer because I am not exactly the biggest fan of beef. So for me to rate this so highly is just a huge surprise to me.


The second reason I find this a funny moment of blogging a recipe is the fact that I actually wrote this recipe more than 12 months ago, without any testing just a simple style sauce that I thought would work with some thin slivers of beef and vegetables. I seriously cannot believe that I have been sitting on this recipe all this time and it tastes so amazeballs!

Sichuan Beef Origin

Sichuan cuisineSzechwan cuisine, or Szechuan cuisine originates from the Sichuan Province in China.  It is basically hot fiery pungent and bold flavours including ingredients like garlic and chilli.  This Sichuan Beef gets the hit of chilli and spice from fresh chilli, sriracha, white pepper and a wee bit of garlic.  The use of butter and a mild fusion of nut butter, sesame oil, five spice and tamari help create the umaminess of hoisin or oyster sauce in this recipe.

How good can Sichuan Beef be?

Today I made this Sichuan beef recipe when a friend and fellow keto follower popped around for a quick bite on a busy day.  Seeing her take her first mouthful, then groan, close her eyes and drop her shoulders instantly made me break out my fork to test this most photogenic dish.  I fell in love!  Not with Kris but with the plateful of food.

    Sensational. Will be definitely making again. So nice to have 1st stir-fry in 12 months of Keto. Couple of things substituted and was still awesome. Thanks Megan

    Wow. Just the right amount of spice for me (maybe too much for the kids!) but multiplied by 4 and thought there was too much liquid. Never fear, I trusted Megan and it was fabulous. Another winner.

  • Tracy M says:

    Oooooh yum – this one was a winner with everyone.
    Only question the ingredients say broccolini, but the directions say broccoli – I used broccoli, but will try it with broccolini next

    Just polished off a bowl of this! My husband said quote “man this is yum. Better than the shop! Salty and sweet…easy 10/10”.

  • Annika says:

    Looks awesome but is it really 1000 calories?? Seems strange given the ingredients.

  • oongy says:

    Just wondering which Sriracha this calls for? I googled and there seems to be a powder and a sauce type?
    Also do you use a particular brand of shaoxing wine please?

  • Jemimah says:

    My partner loved this so much the first time and was disappointed there were no leftovers that we made it again the next night 😄

    Really yummy! Love how tender the beef is by not simply frying in oil.
    Question though – I looked up the Shaoxing wine and wonder how it is keto, being made from rice? The article also said the alcohol content is about 17 to 18% – is there a non-alcoholic version?
