Guys. This beef and broccoli doesn’t get any easier. It just doesn’t.

It cooks on a sheet pan, which means less fuss and less dishes. It’s a win-win for all.

The steak is also incredibly juicy and flavorful while the broccoli is just perfectly crisp-tender.

The only hard part here is making the sauce, except you can easily do that on the stovetop while your beef and broccoli are cooking.

Told you.

It doesn’t get any easier, or quicker here.

    Amazing.  Just amazing

  2. Could you use sirloin steak instead?

    So flavorful!  Took others advice and split broccoli and beef among two smaller sheet pans. Cooked beef 16 mins and broccoli 18 mins. Served with lo mein noodles. Turned out perfect!

    Fabulous and easy

    The whole family liked it! My only variation was to use separate sheet pans for broccoli and beef. Tastes just like takeout!

    I knocked off a star for 2 reasons: 1) pound the steak so it’s not so tough and 2) add a little salt and pepper to the steak and maybe the broccoli as well… other than that, it’s delicious

    The sauce was amazing and a little bit went a long way. Drizzle over the top and toss bringing flavor to the whole meal. So great to have a recipe that isn’t as heavy as takeout.

    Quick and easy! I would double the yummy sauce to keep the rest of the meal from tasting dry. Personally, I chose two small cookie sheets and lined them with foil, separated the broccoli from the beef. The broccoli would be better toasted with salt, pepper, and olive oil, because my itself does not have much flavor. This meal is a great one when in a hurry! Thanks

    I have made this several times now and we love it! I did reduce the amount of sesame oil in the sauce as it was a little strong for my taste. Easy one pan dish.

  10. I would like the nutritional value of this dish please.

    • Nutritional information is provided only for select recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, we recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”). Hope that helps, Deborah!

  11. Not a review but could you substitute chicken for the beef?

  12. This looks great, I LOVE sheet pan meals!  Do you think the sauce could be made ahead and refrigerated for a day or two?  I would love to make the sauce and cut the beef and broccoli on my prep day, for a truly fast-and-easy meal a night or two later.  If I try it I’ll report back!

    • What a great idea! But unfortunately, without having tried this myself, I cannot answer with certainty. But if you get a chance to try it, please let me know how it turns out! 🙂

        So, I prepped this on Monday and cooked it tonight (wednesday).  Overall I think it’s a great concept, and I would never have thought to use these flavor profiles on a sheet pan, but I ran into a few snags.  
        My prep consisted of cutting up the broccoli, getting some steak tips out of the deep freeze to thaw, and combining the sauce ingredients in a jar but not cooking them.  This morning I cut up the steak tips and put them in the marinade.  When I went to cook dinner. all I had to do was toss the broccoli with olive oil, salt and garlic powder, spread it on a sheet pan, and place the steak chunks around it, then slide it in the oven.
        I found that the steak cooked faster than the broccoli.  I carefully picked all the steak off the tray, then put the broccoli back in at a higher temp for another 5+minutes.  I think next time I would maybe start the broccoli a bit sooner to give it a head start.
        I also find that I prefer a more flavorful marinade for the beef than just sweetened soy sauce.  Next time I think I would use the sauce as a marinade instead.  I had microwaved the sauce long enough to boil and thicken it, but I think it would add more as a marinade, and be easier too.
        So, this was a great start, and I think with those modifications I will have this in my regular rotation.  I am always in favor of easy sheet pan dinners and this is a new take that I had not tried before!

  13. Not a review ( yet ) but a question. Do you toss the broccoli in oil too or does it go on the pan dry? Thanks

    Made this dish today. It was delicious and the family loved it.
    The meat went from looking raw to a tad overcooked very quickly. I will watch it more closely next time.
    I used a Teflon pan with cooking spray but the broccoli still stuck. Next time I will use parchment paper.
    I doubled the sauce recipe and it was about right because we like lots of sauce..
    Thanks for turning me on to basmati rice. I have not had it before and it was wonderful.

    Thank you for all the wonderful recipes.

    Absolutely delicious! I love takeout, but hate that it’s always swimming in sauce and oil. This was fresh and delicious – my husband is still raving. Thank you!

    I made some adjustments to the sauce by doubling the soy sauce and adding about two tablespoons of water.   I also substituted the garlic for minced garlic (probably a teaspoon and a half) and I used powder ginger. 
    I didn’t want any meat so I just microwaved a bag of broccoli and poured this sauce over. 

    It was absolutely wonderful. I will never get take out again.

    Love, love, loved it. Our son, daughter-in-law and 2 small children stopped over unexpectedly for dinner.  Made this and all loved it, including the 4 year old. My son wouldn’t leave without the recipe.  Thank you for sharing this!

  18. Does the steak end up well done or still a little rare when cooked for that time frame?

  19. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’m obsessed with sheet pan meals! Thanks this is a good one.

    Thank you for the recipe.. I love all the recipes you post they never disappoint. I made this tonight for dinner. My whole family liked it. The fresh broccoli I had was bad so I used frozen broccoli instead it worked just fine.

    Can I marinate the meat in the soy mixture before cooking?

  22. Would this’ll work well with top sirloin?

  23. I can’t wait to make it.  I use your receipts often and my 18 year sold son loves them!  What is a substitute for the sesame oil?  We have an allergy to sesame seeds.

    • You can use any other light nut or seed oil such as peanut, sunflower or even a light olive oil. Hope that helps!

      • My daughter is also Allergic to sesame seeds, but the doctor informed me that sesame oil is okay because the protein you are allergic to in the seed is eliminated in the oil.  It’s worth an ask as I find sesame oil can end up in a lot of things….
