Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe.
I love a good stir fry recipe. They are my favorite thing to make for dinner during the week.
We also love Chinese takeout. But, since Pookah is gluten free, there are not many options for a quick weeknight meal out there that our whole family can eat.
So I’ve started making my own stir frys and take out recipes. Because why not? It’s easy, saves money, and is much more healthy than any take out we could order.
I’ve been making Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli for a while, but lost my original recipe and had to improvise a new one! But as you will see it’s easy. And even though it’s gluten free, you really can’t tell. It uses cornstarch instead of flour and doesn’t change the taste at all.
Here is what I did:
Start with 1 pound of flank steak cut into 1 inch strips. Then I placed the beef in a mixture of cornstarch and water.
Cook in a hot skillet or a wok until meat is almost done. Just browned so that it doesn’t overcook and make your meat tough.
And to make the recipe even quicker, I blanched the broccoli.( see the directions below)
After browning the beef, add in the broccoli and the sliced onions and stir fry for about 5 minutes or until the veggies are tender.
Take a prepared sauce of cornstarch, low sodium soy sauce ( I used this one), brown sugar, garlic, ginger and pour it over everything and bring to a boil.
Serve immediately over rice and enjoy!
I love this gluten free beef and broccoli stir fry recipe, and hope you do to!
I sometimes substitute chicken in this recipe and it’s just as good!
