Broccoli Beef Stir Fry

I love Chinese food and other Asian type dishes. Stir fry, fried rice, beef and broccoli, lettuce wraps, and many other things that are so popular in Chinese food restaurants in American are some of my favorite foods to eat.

However, a child with a tree nut, peanut, and sesame allergy has severely limited our ability to eat out at all, let alone a place that serves Chinese food.

So, my solution has been to recreate some of our favorite foods at home. Now, I know they are not quite the same, but I make a pretty good fried rice and I recently made one of the best broccoli beef dishes that I have ever made at home.

When I posted on Facebook recently about eating homemade Chinese food and how much we enjoyed it, several of you asked for the recipe. So, today I finally have the broccoli beef recipe for you. And it is really good.

It really is possible to recreate your favorite meals at home. It takes some time and some trial and error, but it can be done. And it is a lot cheaper to make your favorite meals at home.

    Oh my goodness! My 7 yo also has peanut/sesame/nut allergies! She is always asking me does ANYONE else have the same allergies (sesame in particular) as she does, now I can tell her yes, someone else does she’s not the only one!

    Recipe looks yummy! 🙂

    • @Elizabeth, No she is not the only one. My 13 yo daughter developed her tree nut, peanut, and sesame allergy about 1 1/2 years ago. It is amazing how many things those ingredients are in.

  2. This sounds fantastic Lynn! Great that you really can recreate so many of them at home without nuts or seeds.

  3. This looks delicious! We love Chinese food, but it’s so much cheaper to make your own.

    Rice noodles is a blessing from God for my own gluten-free diet. And, my daughter is allergic to nuts, soy, corn, and much more. I was like…”Doh! No corn tortillas or flour tortillas too?”

    So, I need to make almost everything from scratch. I’ve tried using the rice noodles for linguine with a chunky/thick clam sauce…came out soooo good. I haven’t made it in a super long time and wish I had written down the ingredients. I just remember using clams, cooked/strained mushrooms, and heavy cream….makes everything taste good. : )

    This dish looks very delicious, but my daughter is allergic to soy. I had no clue that it was everything….from the obvious like soy sauce to the not so obvious….like almost all the snack products, crackers, and bread. So, we switched over to oyster sauce. Personally, I prefer oyster sauce for Chinese cooking over soy sauce (my grandmother and mother used it and they are true authentic Chinese from the mainland), so it works out well.

  6. Hey! I included this recipe in my recipe box! 🙂 Can’t wait to try it.

  7. Thank you! I’ve had a couple of unsuccessful attempts at homemade Asian and this one worked! I did do it a bit differently – I used all veggies, no beef, cooked everything (except rice) in one pan, and used balsamic vinegar because I was out of apple cider vinegar. Apple cider would have been better – the balsamic is a bit strong. But my people enjoyed it and we saved our extra sauce, which was plenty to do another meal.

    My parents are super healthy, but I think this would work for them too…just sub liquid aminos for soy sauce and honey for sugar, and stick with all veggies. I’ll have to ask about corn starch, not sure if they eat that or maybe would need to go with agar powder.

  8. I made this for dinner very yummy…Thank you
