When I was brainstorming recipes for the new year, I had a few things I wanted to keep in mind. I wanted all of the recipes to be colorful. So, either full of vegetables or tossed in yummy sauces and finished with fresh herbs. I also want to focus on more protein-rich meals this year. And then, of course, I want all of my recipes to be as easy as possible – easy, fun, yet still delicious.

Stir fry dinners have always been on rotation over here. They check off all the above boxes, and they always turn out so delicious.

So for this stir fry, I wanted my sauce to include miso and ginger. Over the holidays, I made my recipe for miso chicken Katsu ramen. I’m in love with the combination of miso, ginger, and sesame when creating Asian sauces. It’s so delicious! I think I made that miso ramen three times over Christmas break, it’s one of my brothers favorite recipes.

Since everyone is still here in Colorado this week, I wanted to create something with a similar flavor profile but a different type of dinner.

This was perfect for everyone!

Here are the details

Step 1: make the sauce

This is simple: whisk everything up in a tall glass measuring cup and the sauce is done.

I love to use tamari, which is gluten-free soy sauce. I also like to use bone broth, but any chicken, vegetable, or beef broth will do the trick. Whisk together the tamari, broth, white miso paste, a tiny amount of honey, red curry paste, ginger juice, and toasted sesame oil.

Now, whisk in the flour (you can also use cornstarch) to help thicken the sauce around the beef.

Step 2: cook the beef and broccoli

Next, start cooking the beef in a big skillet, or if you have one, use a wok. Then add the broccoli, lots of shallots, plenty of ginger, and some garlic. Cook until everything is seared and things are smelling yummy.

Just watch the ginger and garlic, you don’t want them to burn.

Step 3: add the sauce

When things are looking good in the skillet, pour over the sauce. Then simmer, tossing everything up in the sauce until it thickens and coats both the beef and broccoli.

This will take around 5 minutes. Not too long at all.

Step 4: serve

At this point, you can serve the beef and broccoli in the sauce over bowls of rice (I like using jasmine). Lately, I’ve been making my jasmine rice with bone broth. It’s really delicious and also high in protein.

Finish each bowl topped with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil, green onions, and sesame seeds.

Perfect for our busiest nights this year.

Hoping you guys love this one as much as we do. I’m already excited to make it again later this week!

    So easy and delicious! Me and my family loved it! Can you make the sauce ahead and store it in the fridge for even easier weeknight meals? If so, how long do you think it would keep in the fridge?

    1. Hey Michelle,
      I appreciate you trying this recipe and your comment, so glad to hear it turned out well! Sure, I bet the sauce is good for 1 week in the fridge. Have a great weekend! xT

    Very yummy! It took me longer than 20 minutes with chopping the veggies and the flank steak but still worth the effort.

    1. Hey AbiGail,
      Happy Friday!! So glad to hear that this dish turned out well for you, thanks so much for making it and your comment! xT

    The flavors were amazing! But I was completely befuddled by the amount of ghee/oil to “sear” the beef. It was a BIG pan, and I ended up ladeling out 95% of the oil/juice to prevent “boiling” the beef. I even did it in 3 batches and the last batch finally seared. (I use an induction, so it wasn’t a heat issue.) It was delicious overall, but next time I’ll use a teaspoon of ghee per batch of beef.

    I’ve made this several times now- we love it! It’s great that we can get a dinner, plus a couple of lunches out of it too. And, the leftovers are just as good! I’ve made with both yellow and white miso (when I couldn’t find white) and both are great!

    This was delicious and so easy. Made mine in my wok and loaded up on the pickled ginger and chili crisp when I served. Next time I will add more broc. TY.
