Vegan Beef and Broccoli

9:00 AM

Summer has kicked into full gear friends so I'm not gonna lie, it's put a damper on the cooking front.
But have no fear! I found an old recipe, tested it a few times and I'm happy to share it with you!

Vegan Gluten Free Beef and Broccoli
Sometimes you have to get creative with what the meatless product creators have given you. For instance, Beef and Broccoli typically has thicker cuts of meat but finding a vegan alternative that resembles the thicker cuts is hard.

However, I've found that Beyond Beef Crumbles do a good enough job to resemble the classic Beef and Broccoli recipe with a Gluten Free and Vegan twiest! .

Instructions
In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce, ACV, brown sugar, ground ginger, minced garlic, and cornstarch. Pour your mixture into a large skillet or sauce pan, and heat up till the mixture thickens. While it thickens put your beyond beef crumbles to a bowl and set aside. Once the mixture has thickened, add half of it to the separate bowl of beyond beef crumbles and toss. Next, add broccoli to the saucepan with the leftover mixture and toss to cover. Once the broccoli is coated and cooked, add in your crumbles and cook till your crumbles are cooked. Serve over your favorite rice.

*please feel free to do less soy sauce. Depending on what you use, it may be too much.

  1. In all fairness, I did not serve this over rice to avoid the carbs.
    However, the 1/2 cup soy sauce is overkill. The dish was too salty to eat. And I added onions, peppers, green beans, and broccoli.i might try this recipe again I'd use only a 1/4 cup or less if the soy sauce. I questioned if that at was a typo?

    1. I am SO sorry for this MAJOR delay in response. It is not a typo - it really depends on the what soy sauce you use. GF Soy Sauce is (in my opinion) less salty than regular. But everyones taste buds are different.
      Also having the rice there really helps but if you avoiding carbs I suggest maybe subbing in some cauli-rice instead or even quinoa
      Let me know if you make this again how it goes! Thanks for your input

  2. I used low sodium soy sauce and did not find it salty at all. Also, made the meatless crumbles into meatballs so that it looked more like traditional beef and broccoli. I really enjoyed the dish.
