Recipe Notes and Serving Suggestions
To bulk up this beef and broccoli add more broccoli, which is a very low calorie Zero Points food.
You could also make it more colorful and filling by adding thin slices of red bell pepper, carrots and/or mushrooms or any other vegetable of your choice.
While the usual accompaniment is rice (either white or brown) you could opt to serve with cauliflower rice to keep the carbs and points low. Enjoy!

Hello, Is that a picture of this actual recipe? The beef in the pic looks as tho it's coated in some sort of flour so I'm wondering if mine should look like the pic when it's done?
No, I don't have a photo the recipe when I actually made it. I often cook and eat after dark when it's impossible to get decent photos without all kinds of special lighting/photography equipment. Real food rarely looks as good as food photography, but it often tastes as good or better 🙂 It will look more like the beef and broccoli stirfry from a Chinese restaurant, but if you cook the broccoli longer, it won't be as bright green. Hope this helps.
It is coated in flour.
Is the Hoisen sauce necessary? I have everything else and don't really want to go to the store
Hi Michelle, Hoisin is Asian BBQ sauce - savory, sweet and flavorful. Teriyaki sauce or soy sauce sweetened with a bit of honey or sugar might work as substitutes, but I've never tried it. Only have made it as written.
Hi, One of the steps mentions that you "Remove the steak from the marinade but keep the marinade."... I don't see any other mention of the marinade. What is it and how long should the steak be in the marinade?
Hi Cynthi, You place the steak in the marinade in step one. Down near the end of the recipe you return the steak and marinade into the skillet with the broccoli and cook everything together to heat it through. Hope this makes sense!

Hi Martha! I made this recipe and it is unbelievable, so super easy and flavorful. This will be joining my rotation for sure. I'm not kidding when I say this is better than takeout and so much better for you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Hi Trisha, So glad you liked it!! Thanks for letting us know. - Martha
Are the points calculated just for the steak and broccoli or does it include rice?
Hi Jan, the points are calculated without rice. I've updated the post/recipe to make this more clear.
This was so delicious for a diet meal. I served it with jasmine rice and seasoned it coconut aminos. Will definitely make this a regular part of my diet menu.
Outstanding! My husband absolutely loved this recipe. It was easy and fast and delicious. I added about 1tsp soy sauce and 1/2 tbsp of cornstarch to the beef before adding the rest of the marinade (just to crisp it up a bit.) Also, we like it spicy so I added about 1 tbsp of chili paste to the marinade. This will be a go to recipe for sure!
Laura, Thanks for sharing your adjustments. They sound delicious! ~Martha
