Beef and Broccoli Fried Rice

Fried rice is one of my favorite take-out foods. It’s affordable and always reheats well for lunch or dinner the next day. Making your own at home is pretty simple to do, and I also enjoy the fact that you can then control the amount of sodium by making your own sauce. This rice has the perfect combination of yummy, crisp broccoli and caramelized ribeye steak. If you want to keep this vegetarian, simply swap in baked tofu or chickpeas for the steak. Serve this with a side of fresh fruit and dinner is ready!

  1. Bring a saucepan of salted water to a boil and add the broccoli. Cook for 1 minute, then drain and set aside.

2. Heat avocado oil (or vegetable oil) in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add diced steak and salt and cook (undisturbed) for 2 minutes to allow the steak to caramelize. Add beaten egg and cook for 1 minute longer.

3. Add cooked rice and broccoli and stir to combine. Combine sauce ingredients. Add sauce and green onion to the rice and stir to combine.

4. Scoop fried rice into bowls and garnish with sesame seeds and more sriracha, if desired.
