Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lb beef strips
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 cloves garlic * minced
  • 1 Tablespoon ginger * minced
  • 3 Cups broccoli florets
  • 1/2 Cup beef stock * gluten free, if necessary
  • 1/4 Cup soy sauce * gluten free, if necessary
  • 1/4 Cup cooking sherry
  • 1 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 cups zucchini noodles * from 1-2 zucchini
  • green onions * optional, for garnish

Instructions

  • PREP: Cut your beef into strips, if needed and place in a medium bowl. Spiralize the zucchini and set aside. Chop your broccoli into bite-sized florets.  Have all of your other ingredients out and ready to go!
  • Add the corn starch to the bowl with the beef strips and toss to coat them well. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the beef strips and cook until done through, about 7-10 minutes. Remove the beef and place on a plate.
  • In the same skillet, add the garlic and ginger and cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the broccoli and stock, cover, and cook until the broccoli is tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, combine the soy sauce, sherry, and brown sugar in a bowl and whisk together well. Add to the broccoli along with the beef strips. Cook another 3-5 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Heat the zoodles over medium heat in a skillet with a little bit of oil just long enough to warm them. Do not pre-salt or add salt during cooking.
  • Place the zoodles on a dish or in a bowl, and top with the Beef & Broccoli Zoodles and sliced green onions, if desired.
