With simple ingredients and quick and easy prep time, Ground Beef and Broccoli will remind you of Chinese take-out only it’s cheaper and healthier!



2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onions
1 (12oz) jar gluten-free oyster sauce (Kikkoman or SunLuck)
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1/2 Tbsp ginger paste
16 oz frozen broccoli,
23 cups raw white rice
sesame seeds, optional


Begin cooking your rice first.

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef, then add the chopped onions, garlic, ginger paste, and oyster sauce. Cook over medium heat and stir occasionally for 2 minutes. Stir in the frozen broccoli. Cover your pan and cook for 5 minutes. The broccoli will begin to thaw and release water.

Remove the cover, stir, and cook, checking and stirring occasionally, for 5-15 more minutes until the broccoli is heated through and enough liquid is absorbed to reach the desired consistency.

Serve over rice when ready and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
