Beef and Broccoli is such a classic takeout recipe, but when you're eating clean or doing a Whole30, you typically can't order it out! Here's a Whole30 compatible version that's also super fast and easy!
The Best Chinese Beef and Broccoli Recipe
The best is a big claim, but I promise you're not going to find a faster or easier recipe! And when you're doing the Whole30, that's priceless.
We also know dishes are 10x worse during a Whole30, so you really can't beat a one pan beef and broccoli recipe!
No big list here! Everything is nice and simple, and you quite possibly have these all on hand if you're eating Whole30 or Paleo anyway.
- Coconut Aminos
- Sesame Oil
- Fish Sauce
That's it! Only 7 ingredients! You can of course go crazy with the toppings, which is definitely the fun part here!
I do recommend using coconut aminos by The New Primal. They are the best tasting in my opinion, as many brands are too sweet for my liking. There's is a good blend of sweet and savory.

Tips and Substitutions for Sheet Pan Beef and Broccoli
Not in the mood for broccoli? Use cauliflower instead! It substitutes wonderfully, all the instructions are exactly the same!
You could also add some thinly sliced carrots also!
Don't like medium-rare beef? simply broil the beef a bit longer. I like mine medium rare but you can definitely play around with it to make sure it's as you like it.
Don't go crazy with the fish sauce-a little goes a LONG way! Fish sauce is VERY potent so while ⅛ of a teaspoon doesn't seem like a lot, you probably don't want anymore than that!
Wondering what type of beef to use to make Whole30 beef and broccoli? I recommend one with the most marbling in it, as that will yield the most tender beef. Stew meat is good too, just cut it down to size. Flank steak can work also. Really the choice is yours!
How to Serve Whole30 Beef and Broccoli
The topping options for this meal make it fun!
Sriracha is one of my favorite toppings for this meal, but the regular one you can buy at any grocery store undoubtedly has added sugar, meaning it's off limits for your Whole30.
You can make this Whole30 Sriracha Recipe from Nom Nom Paleo. It tastes great and very similar to the bottled varieties!
If you prefer to buy some, Yellow Bird has one that is Whole30 approved! I've seen them in Whole Foods, but they also have a store locator on their site!
Other good toppings include: sesame seeds, chopped scallions, and of course, more coconut aminos!

Sheet Pan Meals are some of my favorites, and I have a list of Healthy Sheet Pan Dinners right here! These are great to add to your weekly menu, as Whole30 is challenging on it's own without the added stress of cooking and cleanup!
