This easy and healthy restaurant style beef and broccoli recipe is so good you won’t even miss your go to restaurant beef and broccoli.

I’m actually not the biggest fan of Chinese food. It took me a long time, a trip to Thailand, and really good Vietnamese food near my house to realize my devotions. I LOVE the vinegar-ey flavors of Thai & Vietnamese food, but I also looooove beef and broccoli. So it’s all good. It’s especially good because this homemade restaurant style beef & broccoli is so quick and easy, you know it’s one of those things that just seems too good to be true…. but it’s not.

Beef and broccoli is a go-to order at Asian restaurants…. even sometimes at Thai restaurants, like I said on self.com. These versions are pretty different, and now I really want to make a Thai style beef and broccoli…. but I gotta make room in my fridge for oyster and fish sauce. womp, womp. In the meantime, enjoy this really easy & super delicious soy sauce based beef and broccoli. Annnd just like all my other recipes, this takes right around 30 minutes. So seriously, unless you live next door to a Chinese restaurant, it’s just as quick as take-out.
