Beef and broccoli meal prep , Keto low carb

Beef and broccoli stir fry is paired with cauliflower rice for a low carb and keto friendly meal prep ready in about 30 minutes.

Ingredients Beef and broccoli meal prep :

  •  2 tbsp olive oil
  •  3 cups cauliflower rice
  •  salt to taste
  •  2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
  •  1 lb strip loin sliced against the grain into 1/4 inch thick strips
  •  1/2 tsp xanthan gum optional
  •  4 cloves garlic minced
  •  3 cups broccoli florets
  •  1 tsp sesame oil
  •  1/4 cup low sodium beef broth
  •  2 scallions thinly sliced

Directions Beef and broccoli meal prep:
  1. Toss beef in 1 tbsp soy sauce and let marinate for 10 minutes. 
  2. Add 1 tbsp oil to a large skillet or wok and bring to medium high heat. Add in the cauliflower rice and cook until tender. Season with salt to taste. Divide cauliflower rice evenly into 4 meal prep containers.
  3. Add remaining 1 tbsp oil and garlic to skillet/wok and bring to high heat. 
  4. If using xanthan gum, sprinkle it across beef and toss beef to evenly coat. Add beef to hot oil. Allow beef to sear a few minutes on each side. When beef is seared on both sides, add in broccoli. 
  5. Drizzle sesame oil and remaining soy sauce over broccoli. Stir fry until beef is fully cooked and broccoli is tender but still crisp. If your stir fry gets dry, add in beef broth, 1 tbsp at a time, until everything is cooked. Taste and add more soy sauce if needed. Garnish with scallions
  6. When beef and broccoli have cooled, divide into meal prep containers. 

Notes keto for beginners:
  • I use these Meal Prep Containers
  • You do not have to use strip loin, but you do want to use a premium cut of beef that will stay tender since the meat is not treated with cornstarch (which usually is used to tenderize the beef)
  • If you are not following a strict keto diet, I do recommend tossing the beef in 1 tbsp of cornstarch when it is marinating in the soy sauce as it will make the beef much more tender and will thicken the sauce (you would also not use xanthan gum if you are using cornstarch)
