Beef With Broccoli Bowls – 30 Minute Meal

Wow! This delicious beef and broccoli bowls recipe takes only 30 minutes to make! Great weeknight meal for busy moms!I’ve got another quick and easy dinner idea for you all today!  This Beef with Broccoli recipe is sure to rival your favorite local Chinese takeout location!  Quick, easy and delicious – this meal is an ideal weeknight meal for busy moms. 

These Beef with Broccoli bowls take about 30 minutes to make, and they have great flavour. I do use a prepackaged beef and broccoli sauce mix (to save time), but feel free to use a fresh sauce if you would like.  Those little semi-homemade steps make it just a lot easier to manage on a busy evening.  

My husband and I love the crunchy broccoli, and my kids loved the beef and sauce. It’s a great dish to get a load of veggies in one sitting.  If your kids don’t like broccoli, you can easily substitute another vegetable they enjoy like sugar snap peas, carrots or even tons of sweet bell peppers.  

Beef With Broccoli Bowls

What you will need:

  • 1 lb of stir fry beef (can be found in the beef section)
  • 3 cups broccoli florets; cut into bite sized pieces.
  • 1 medium onion; sliced thin
  • 1 package of Beef & Broccoli stir fry seasoning mix (can be found in the International section)
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • rice or noodles to serve

In a large frying pan or Wok, add oil and over medium high heat, brown the beef. Remove from pan and set aside.  This usually takes 2-4 minutes depending on the amount of meat and how thinly you slice it.  This isn’t to cook through, but just to brown. 

Add the veggies to the frying pan and stir fry for 5 – 7 minutes. Some vegetables may take longer to cook than others, so if using something other than broccoli your cook time may vary slightly.  Mix together the seasoning mix, water and soy sauce together. Add to veggies.  

Add the meat back in, and stir to coat everything, Let the meat mixture and sauce simmer for approximately 5 minutes, until it thickens and the veggies are perfectly cooked.

Serve over rice, or noodles and enjoy!  If you are on a low carbohydrate diet, you can use something like shirataki noodles or no noodles at all for this dish.  Just increase the amount of the vegetables you cook so it is a really hearty meal for everyone to enjoy.

There you have it – another 30-minute meal for those crazy nights! This one is family and kid friendly, easy and even is perfect for those inexpensive cuts of beef since the way you slice the meat can make it much more tender.  For an even tastier experience, you can leave our beef sliced and in the marinade for a few hours prior to cooking.  

If you are not a fan of the beef, you could always use chicken – or even tofu. And feel free to add more veggies if you’d like. I think some diced peppers would be an awesome addition to this meal.
