Broccoli beef is one of my favorite things to get when it comes to Chinese food. I love it.
Because of my daughter’s tree nut, peanut, sesame allergy, eating out is difficult. Eating at a Chinese food, or any type of restaurant that serves Chinese or Asian type food, is almost impossible. There are just too many risks because of the amount of nuts and sesame they use.
When it comes to Chinese type food we have learned to make our own at home.
Sometimes I take a lot of time to recreate a favorite at home, but most of the time time I like to keep it simple with meals like this sheet pan broccoli beef. This recipe makes broccoli beef easy to make.
I have been known to just eat it on it’s own. I like it that way, but the rest of my family likes it over rice. The leftovers are great for lunch the next day.
In the spirit of keeping it real, I will fully admit that not everyone in my family loves broccoli. One or two of my children don’t like it at all, but they eat it when I serve it. Or they pick out the broccoli and have meat and rice. Just keeping it real because I doubt my kids are not the only kids that don’t love broccoli. 🙂

Spread meat and sauce on sheet pans, dividing evenly between pans. Bake for 15 minutes.
