This familiar favorite has all the fantastic flavors without the unhealthy element of unwanted oils. 

The blend of tamari sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, and ginger over juicy steak and broccoli means you can still enjoy your favorite cheat meal and still keep it low carb.

Why the sheet pan?

I’ve mentioned before how much I love sheet pan dinners

Let’s face it – one of the bonuses of take-outs is not having dishes. But when you order take-out, you often don’t know exactly what ingredients are being used. Sheet pan dinners almost eliminate the issue of dishes, but you’re getting a healthy meal.

A sheet pan meal is a similar concept to a one-pot meal, except you’re doing all your cooking on a sheet pan in the oven.

Sheet pan meals save time and make clean-up a breeze (especially if you line your pan with foil), and don’t require any fancy ingredients.

A sheet pan is a wide, shallow baking pan – either made from aluminum or stainless steel. The low sides are important as they encourage airflow and browning.

What cut of steak to use for Chinese Beef and Broccoli

I recommend flank steak for this meal. Flank is a lean but flavorful cut of meat that benefits from using a marinade.

Slice the steak against the grain, and you will end up with tender strips of meat. Cutting across the grain will retain more juice and flavor.

Shouldn’t I marinate the steak?

Tossing the steak strips in the marinade allows them to soak up the flavor without compromising the texture so I wouldn’t recommend marinating the strips as it could affect the texture. 

Is broccoli keto-friendly?

Broccoli is a cruciferous vegetable known for its health benefits. It’s packed with nutrients, including fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

However, the keto diet focuses on restricting carbohydrates, so it’s crucial to consider the carb content in foods like broccoli.

The good news is that broccoli is relatively low in carbs. A typical serving of broccoli contains about 6 grams of carbs per cup, with approximately 2.4 grams coming from dietary fiber.

Since fiber is not fully absorbed by the body, it’s often subtracted from the total carb count, resulting in a lower net carb content.

Broccoli can be a valuable addition to your keto meal plan. Whether steamed, sautéed, or enjoyed in a keto-friendly casserole, it adds a nutritious punch without compromising your carb limit.

Ingredients for clean Keto Chinese Beef and Broccoli

Ready for a tasty Clean Keto Chinese Beef and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal? Here’s what you need:

1. Flank Steak

Flank steak is the star of this Clean Keto Chinese Beef and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal. Known for its lean and flavorful profile, it’s the perfect choice for a protein-packed dish. When cooked, it becomes tender and pairs wonderfully with the vibrant flavors of the sauce.

2. Tamari Sauce

For that umami kick without the carbs, tamari sauce is the secret ingredient. It’s a gluten-free alternative to soy sauce, adding depth and richness to the dish while keeping it keto-friendly. The savory notes of tamari elevate the overall flavor profile.

3. Sesame Oil

Sesame oil contributes a nutty and aromatic essence to the meal, enhancing the overall taste. It’s used sparingly but goes a long way in providing an authentic Chinese flavor and a hint of richness to the beef and broccoli.

4. Rice Vinegar

Adding a touch of acidity, rice vinegar balances the richness of the sauce. It brings a subtle tanginess that complements the savory elements, creating a well-rounded flavor profile without compromising on keto principles.

5. Garlic and Ginger

The dynamic duo of garlic and ginger brings a burst of freshness and warmth to the dish. Minced garlic adds a robust flavor, while ginger adds a zingy and aromatic note, creating a harmonious blend that infuses the entire meal with irresistible aromas.

6. Broccoli Florets

Broccoli is not only a low-carb veggie but also a nutrient powerhouse. In this dish, broccoli adds a vibrant green color, a satisfying crunch, and a wealth of vitamins. It’s the perfect partner to the beef, creating a well-balanced and visually appealing meal.

7. Salt & Pepper

The simple yet essential seasoning of salt and pepper enhances the natural flavors of the ingredients. It ensures that each bite is perfectly seasoned, letting the quality of the beef and the freshness of the broccoli shine through.

8. Sesame Seeds

Sprinkled on top for a delightful crunch and a touch of visual appeal, sesame seeds bring a nutty flavor to the dish. They add a final layer of texture, making each bite a satisfying experience.

9. Green Onions

Finishing off the dish with a burst of freshness, green onions contribute a mild onion flavor. They not only enhance the visual appeal with their vibrant green color but also add a subtle bite, tying the entire Clean Keto Chinese Beef and Broccoli Sheet Pan Meal together.
