Paleo Broccoli Beef

Paleo Broccolini Beef Recipe

It’s quicker than takeout, more nutritious than delivery, and it honestly takes less time to throw together than it would take for you to make an order and wait for it to show up at your door.

The ginger and garlic in this Paleo Broccolini Beef give a little bit of a bite while the coconut aminos add some subtle sweetness and touch of umami flavor.

My boys are obsessed with this meal, and as a mom, I love how easy it is to get on the table. If you buy pre-minced garlic and jarred ginger like me (yep, I admit it!), then it literally comes together in 15 minutes.

The reality is, most takeout beef and broccoli are slathered in a sugar-laden sauce that will leave you on a blood sugar roller coaster of spiking and crashing. Practically, this looks like craving dessert an hour after dinner or late-night snack attacks. My better-than-takeout broccolini beef will satisfy the craving while keeping your blood sugar stable and calming hunger hormones. How? The Fab Four.

  • 8 to 10 broccolini stalks, halved crosswise
  • 6 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

  1. Bring 2 inches of water to a simmer in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the Broccolini and cook for 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain and set aside.
