Stir fry is the original 20 minute dinner idea and they have that title for a reason. Pick a protein, veggie, rice and throw it in a pan for the easiest meal! Cooked in a sticky garlic ginger sauce and served on rice, it's one of those classic meals that becomes a weekly staple.


– Ground beef – Broccoli – Soy sauce – Honey – Sesame oil – Cornstarch – Ginger – Garlic – Sriracha – Rice

Can I use fresh broccoli?

Yes of course! I love the convenience (and price) of frozen broccoli, however fresh broccoli will work great. Just steam it first prior to adding it to the recipe.

Top Tip

This recipe is fairly straightforward, but the hardest part is ensuring the sauce does not clump. The best way to do this is continually whisking the sauce while slowly adding your cornstarch over low heat. The less you whisk, the more likely it is that clumps will form.

Why reduced sodium soy sauce?

This is completely up to you! I personally find the reduced sodium version doesn’t taste too different and it helps decrease the sodium content of the meal. However if you prefer traditional soy sauce, you are 100% able to use it.


Ground beef and broccoli stir fry is an easy meal prep option. It will stay fresh for up to 3-4 days in an airtight container. I have not tested freezing this one but if you try, please let me know how it turns out!
