Guys. This beef and broccoli doesn’t get any easier. It just doesn’t. It cooks on a sheet pan, which means less fuss and less dishes. It’s a win-win for all. The steak is also incredibly juicy and flavorful while the broccoli is just perfectly crisp-tender. The only hard part here is making the sauce, except you can easily do that on the stove top while your beef and broccoli are cooking.

  • 1 cup basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 pounds New York strip steak, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce, divided
  • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons brown sugar, divided
  • 2 heads broccoli, cut into florets*
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds


How to make this beef and broccoli
  • In a large saucepan of 2 cups water, cook rice according to package instructions; set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  • In a large bowl, combine steak, 1 tablespoon soy sauce and 2 teaspoons brown sugar. Place steak and broccoli in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.
  • Place into oven and bake until steak is browned and broccoli is just tender, about 16-18 minutes.
  • In a small saucepan over medium low heat, combine sesame oil, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes, remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce and remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until slightly thickened, about 2-3 minutes.
  • Serve steak and broccoli immediately with rice, drizzled with soy sauce mixture and garnished with green onions and sesame seeds, if desired.
