Today was going to make my keto beef and broccoli, and I think you’re wondering, hey, what is the difference between regular beef and broccoli, that I would get at a Chinese restaurant and keto beef and broccoli.
Well, usually beef and broccoli have a lot of sugar in it, so we’re gonna use, of course, a low carb sweetener and it also usually uses cornstarch, so I’m gonna show you how we replace that.
HOW TO MAKE KETO BEEF AND BROCCOLI
for our keto beef and broccoli, the first thing we’re gonna do is heat some Avocado oil in a hot skillet, and you want it to be pretty hot.
We’re going to cook our steak in a skillet on high. Of course, you need steak for your beef and broccoli.
So, we’re gonna cook it in a hot skillet, and I use thinly sliced sirloin steak. You could use, pretty much any steak you want, but, of course, cheaper steaks are going to be tougher.
We cut it into slices, against the grain. We will do it in two batches. We’ll cook it until it’s brown on both sides and then we’ll do the second batch.
Okay, we’ve got both of our batches of steak nice and brown, so we going to remove them from the pan, onto the plate, and then we can start cooking our broccoli.
So, we will need some broccoli florets, and you know, the smaller you make the florets, the easier they’re going to be, or the faster they will cook.
So, we’re gonna cook these, until they are fork-tender. It’s gonna take about ten minutes or so.
If you wanted, you could use frozen broccoli florets, and they will cook a lot faster than the fresh. Either way would work.
Okay, we got our broccoli sweet and tender, we browned it first.
Just because charred broccoli tastes so much better with a little bit of colour on it, and then we made sure and got them to fork-tender. We will need to put a little bit of water in the pan and put a lid on it, just so they could get cooked a little bit faster.
So, now, we’ll bring the steak back in the pan and bring this all together.
Turn my heat back up and add in some beef broth then add-in some low carb sweetener. It’s Lakanto, and it’s my new favourite sweetener. I like it better than Swerve, it doesn’t have much of that cooling effect that Swerve has, and I love it.
Add also some soy sauce and some garlic and some ginger paste, you could make, I mean, you could use fresh ginger if you wanted to, but I like shortcuts, and I like to use the paste. So much easier.
So, now, We’ll thicken it. So we want this to start to simmer.
Add some Xanthan gum, and we use that in place of the corn starch that would be used in traditional keto beef, I mean, not keto beef and broccoli, classic beef and broccoli. IT is one of my favourite keto ingredients. Just it thickens so nicely, you don’t have to use very much.
Now, we’ll let it simmer and thicken.
