Why I Love This Recipe

Any weeknight beef recipe that comes collectively rapidly and feeds the entire household is a surefire win for me. Often which means a floor beef recipe, like my reader-favorite Korean Meatballs, however this recipe makes use of quick-cooking flank steak.

Flank steak is likely one of the greatest beef cuts to make use of for a fast dinner. When sliced in opposition to the grain, both earlier than cooking or after cooking, it turns into deliciously tender. Apart from stir fry, I additionally love utilizing flank steak in my Tacos al Carbón (grilled steak tacos).

For this recipe, I really like serving the tender beef and broccoli with lengthy grain brown rice. Collectively the meat, broccoli and rice make a surprisingly fast and really satisfying dinner. For a lower-carb choice you’ll be able to serve the meat and broccoli over cauliflower rice or skip all of it collectively (although you could need to double the meat and broccoli then).

  • Low-sodium tamari or soy sauce: whichever you’ve gotten readily available works nice right here. Should you solely have common (not low-sodium) pull again on the quantity of salt used to season the meat.
