  • 1 tablespoon cooking oil olive, coconut, peanut
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 head of broccoli cut into florets
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil divided
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon chili oil
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar substitute or other granulated sugar substitute
  • 1-2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 small piece ginger grated
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the cooking oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add the broccoli florets and cook until just slightly tender, about 6 minutes. Remove from pan.
  • Add half the sesame oil to the pan along with the ground beef. Saute, breaking up into small pieces as it browns.
  • Meanwhile, combine the soy sauce, chili oil, remaining sesame oil, brown sugar substitute, garlic and ginger in a bowl.
  • Once the meat is browned, lower the heat and add the broccoli back into the pan.
  • Pour in the sauce and stir the beef and broccoli together until the sauce is incorporated. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve on top of cauliflower rice or on its own.


I use Chiu Chow Chili Oil by Lee Kum Kee. You can substitute with another chili oil or Sriracha. It’s not enough to make the dish spicy, but leave it out if you don’t tolerate any heat.
