  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 head of broccoli cut into florets approximately 4 cups
  • 1/2 cup low sodium soy sauce see note 1
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons chili paste see note 2
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes optional


  • Whisk together the soy sauce, corn starch, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, chili paste, and red pepper flakes.
  • Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook, breaking it up. Drain the excess grease from the pan.
  • Add the broccoli and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in the sauce. Cook until the sauce has thickened, about three minutes. Serve with rice.


  1. If you don't have low sodium soy sauce on hand, use 1/3 cup soy sauce and the rest water to make 1/2 cup total liquid.
  2. If you like your dishes spicy, make sure to add two teaspoons of chili paste. Just 1 teaspoon will give it just a small, nice little kick.
  3. Please note that the nutritional information does not include the rice.
