Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 pounds top sirloin steak, sliced into about 1/4 inch thick slices *
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch, flour or Arrowroot powder
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup low sodium beef broth *
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar or sugar substitute
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar or white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup sweet chili sauce or 1/2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, optional *
  • 1 16 ounce package frozen broccoli florets
  • sesame seeds, chopped green onions (optional)


  1. In a large bowl, place the sliced beef, cornstarch, ginger, onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Stir well to coat beef.

    2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over medium heat. Place the coated beef in the pan and stir beef for 4 minutes until lightly browned.

    3. In a small bowl or a measuring cup, stir together the broth, sugar, soy sauce, chili sauce or red pepper flakes, if using.

    4. Pour sauce mixture into the skillet and bring to a low boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 3 minutes to thicken the sauce.

    5. Microwave the frozen broccoli florets for 2 minutes, just until tender-crisp.   Then pour them into the skillet. Simmer in the teriyaki sauce for another 2 minutes until heated through.

    6. Serve  on a bed of white, basmati, jasmine, brown or cauliflower rice.

    7. Garnish with optional sesame seed and chopped green onions.


* You can also use flank steak or top round steak.

*Diluted beef gravy can be substituted for the beef broth.  (Only use about 1/2 gravy packet).

*For lower carb- use Monkfruit, Allulose or Erythritol

* Add the chili sauce or red pepper flakes if you like just a touch of spiciness.
