BEEF BROCCOLI (GLUTEN FREE)

Beef Broccoli (Gluten Free)

My husband loves Chinese food, so I decided to try to make a gluten-free Beef Broccoli recipe. It’s flavorful, easy to make, and perfect for meal prep! Besides being gluten-free, it's also dairy-free as well as Paleo and Whole30-adaptable (without the rice). It's delicious served over ghee-fried cauliflower rice!

Did you know? Beef is a great source of creatine, a compound that boosts energy production in the muscle and increases muscle strength and growth.

Choosing the best beef

I definitely recommend organic or at least grass-fed beef because it contains up to five times more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats, more CLA, more Vitamin E, and less saturated fat. Organic beef is also free of antibiotics and growth hormones (source).

Preparing the beef

For the marinade I simply used coconut aminos and baking soda. The baking soda is optional, but it helps tenderize the meat. The coconut aminos can be substituted for tamari sauce or soy sauce if you’re not gluten-free or Paleo, but if you do that I also recommend adding a couple tablespoons of sugar-free brown sugar alternative. Coconut aminos are naturally sweet! I stir-fried the beef with avocado oil but you could use another high heat oil like canola oil, grapeseed oil, or sesame oil.

Making the sauce

For the sauce, I used more coconut aminos, beef broth, tapioca starch, fresh garlic, fresh ginger, and black pepper. I prefer tapioca starch (tapioca flour) to arrowroot powder because it’s better for baking, thickening sauces, and being cooled and reheated. You could also substitute two tablespoons of cornstarch.

Feel free to substitute the fresh garlic and ginger for roughly one-third the amount dried. I would start with 1 tsp. granulated garlic and 1/3 tsp. ground ginger (more to taste).
