4 servings


  • cup reduced-sodium tamari or soy sauce

  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch, divided

  • 1 pound sirloin steak, thinly sliced

  • 3 tablespoons peanut or canola oil, divided

  • 6 cups broccoli florets

  • ½ cup sliced scallions, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon finely grated ginger

  • 1 teaspoon finely grated garlic

  • 2 cups cooked brown rice

  • Crushed red pepper for garnish


  1. Whisk tamari (or soy sauce), broth, brown sugar and 1 tablespoon cornstarch in a small bowl. Toss steak with the remaining 1 tablespoon cornstarch.

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large flat-bottom wok or cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook, stirring once, until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a clean plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and broccoli; cook, stirring occasionally, until slightly tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in scallions, ginger and garlic; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Whisk the tamari mixture and add it, along with the beef, back to the pan; cook until the sauce thickens, about 1 minute. Serve over brown rice and garnish with crushed red pepper, if desired.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
