  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 4 cloves garlic minced

Stir Fry Sauce

  • ½ teaspoon minced ginger
  • ½ cup light soy sauce
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste


  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds for topping
  • white rice for serving


  • Add ground beef to a saute pan set over medium high heat.
  • Brown the ground beef and crumble it with a wooden spoon as it cooks.
  • Add ginger, garlic, light soy sauce, brown sugar, beef broth, and chili paste to a small bowl and mix to combine the stir fry sauce.
  • Once beef is well browned, add the garlic and cook for an additional minute or until fragrent.
  • Add the broccoli florets and sauce. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.
  • Let the sauce simmer uncovered until thickened and most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Serve ground beef and broccoli over cooked white rice and top with sesame seeds.


I recommend using lean ground beef such as 85/15 or 90/10. Using overly greasy hamburger will detract from the clean flavor of the stir fry.
