Beef & broccoli has always been one of the most popular Chinese takeout menu items, but normally it's made with some not so healthy oils, not to mention the cornstarch and flour that makes this dish a no go for anyone on a ketogenic diet. We put our heads together and came up with a fiery take on this carry out classic. Fresh broccoli and Strip steak are the stars of this recipe, lightly tossed in a flavorful spicy sauce full of ginger, garlic and chilis.
The Ketologie Smoky Beef Bone Broth is a perfect way to add that beefy flavor to this sauce as well as a tasty dose of grass-fed Collagen. As the sauce reduces, the bone broth powder brings all the ingredients together to create this mouthwatering firecracker sauce. This recipe can be doubled or tripled to become a fast and easy Keto meal prep as well. Serve the firecracker beef & broccoli over cauliflower rice, konjac noodles or even shredded cabbage to make a delicious low carb egg roll bowl. In addition feel free to add mushrooms, onions or snow peas to create an amazingly simple stir fry.

12 oz Strip Steak (thinly sliced)
2 cups Broccoli Florets
⅓ cups Water
1 scoop Ketologie Beef Broth
3-4 tbsp Sambal Oelek Chili Sauce
1 tbsp Fresh Grated Ginger
2 tbsp Avocado Oil

Cut florets into smaller bite size pieces, then blanch in boiling water for about 90 seconds. Drain broccoli and shock in ice water to stop the cooking process.
Next thinly slice strip steak against the grain, lightly season with salt and pepper.
In a pan with 2 tbsp avocado oil lay each piece of steak out in the pan and sear for about 90 seconds per side until caramelized. Remove steak from pan and set aside.
Add ginger and garlic to hot pan and cook for one minute, then add water to deglaze the pan. Next add the fish sauce, coconut Aminos and Sambal Oelek to the pan. Let sauce reduce for about a minute, then add Ketologie beef bone broth powder and Ketologie Sweet Like Sugar Sweetener, whisk to combine.
Once sauce begins to thicken, add beef and broccoli back into the pan. Stir to combine all ingredients.
To finish the sauce, add one tbsp of butter once you’ve removed the pan from the heat and stir until it’s completely melted.
To spice up the sauce even more feel free to add Korean chili flakes to the sauce or sprinkle on top as a garnish.
