Beef and broccoli stir fry is a delicious, quick and easy recipe made in only 20 minutes, perfect for weeknight dinners in a hurry!
About a week ago I was craving Beef Chow Fun from my favorite local Chinese restaurant. Instead of heading into downtown to grab a bowl at the restaurant, I decided to come up with a recipe to make it at home, and share it on the blog!
If you’re not familiar with Beef Chow Fun, it’s a Chinese stir fry dish made with beef, bean sprouts and wide rice noodles, AKA hor fun, which is how the dish gets it’s name.
Unfortunately I was not able to find wide rice noodles or bean sprouts at any of the three grocery stores I regularly shop at, which is how this dish became slightly transformed from Beef Chow Fun to Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry.
I used broccolini instead of broccoli, simply because I think it makes a more stylish bowl of noodles (seriously, only a food blogger refers to bowls of noodles as stylish, lol!) At home, you can use broccoli or broccolini, whichever you prefer!
Even though I had to veer from the original recipe I had planned, I love how this beef and broccoli recipe turned out! It’s full of flavor, made in only 20 minutes and all of the ingredients are easily found at any major grocery store!
- ¼ cup soy sauce
- 1 tbsp sriracha
- 1 tbsp rice vinegar
- 1 tbsp honey
- 1 tbsp chili paste
- 8 oz Pad Thai Rice Noodles
- 1 tbsp sesame oil
- 1 cup Vidalia onions (sliced)
- 2 cups fresh broccoli (or broccolini)
- 3 cloves garlic (minced)
- 2 tsp fresh ginger (minced)
- 1 lb ground beef
- ¼ cup green onions (sliced)
Combine the soy sauce, sriracha, rice vinegar, honey and chili paste in a small bowl. Set aside.
Cook the rice noodles according to package directions, drain, rinse in cold water and set aside.
Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions and broccoli, saute 4-5 minutes, then add the garlic and ginger, saute an additional 1-2 minutes.
Add the beef and cook through.
Drain any grease from the beef, then add the noodles and sauce to the pan.
Stir fry for 2-3 minutes, add the green onions and serve.
I’m so excited to add this bowl of deliciousness to my ever-growing list of quick and easy Chinese recipes to make at home, with favorites like Orange Chicken, Honey Walnut Shrimp, Sriracha Steak Fried Rice & General Tso’s Chicken, all made in under 30 minutes!
