One pan Beef, Green beans and Broccoli!

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 4 to 5 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, or to taste
  • pinch cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes, optional and to taste
  • 1 to 1 and a half pounds flank steak, sliced against the grain in bite size pieces
  • 2 large heads of broccoli florets
  • 2 cups of green beans
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • 2 to 3 green onions sliced in 1-inch segments on the bias, optional for garnishing
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, optional for garnishing
  • Rice or quinoa

Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a sheet pan with aluminum foil for easier clean up.
  • Add soy sauce, garlic, honey, brown sugar, sesame oil, rice vinegar, ginger, (optional salt, pepper, optional cayenne or red pepper flakes), and whisk to combine together in a large bowl
  • Add the steak, stir to combine, and leave it to marinate for 10 to 15 minutes (if you have time and can marinate for up to 1 hour, even better).
  • Using tongs transfer the steak to the sheet pan with space in between the pieces and set aside.
  • Add the green beans cut in half and the broccoli (I like to use 2 full heads of broccoli, you can use less if desired) to the marinade mixture and give it a quick dunk, you just want to moisten it a bit. Using the tongs, transfer the broccoli to the sheet pan, and scatter it in between the steak if possible so food isn’t overlapping too much. Put a side the extra marinade.
  • Bake for about 10 to 12 minutes, or until the steak is cooked through and the broccoli is tender.
  • While the food bakes, add the reserved marinade to a small saucepan and bring it to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Add the cornstarch and cold water to a small bowl, stir to combine, and all the cornstarch slurry to the boiling saucepan, whisking nearly constantly for 30 seconds or until dissolved. The sauce will get very thick quickly because there’s not much quantity. If desired, add about 1/4 to 1/2 cup water as desired for consistency, whisking until incorporated and smooth.
  • After the beef and broccoli are done, evenly drizzle with the sauce, to taste.
  • Evenly garnish with optional green onions, optional sesame seeds, and serve immediately.
  • Place on top of rice or quinoa and enjoy!
