Ingredients for Beef and Broccoli on Blackstone

- Low sodium soy sauce – If you need to lower the sodium content even more, then you can use coconut aminos in place of soy sauce. Just keep in mind that the flavor will change a bit.
- Light brown sugar packed – You can use dark brown sugar if that is all that you have on hand, but light brown sugar will create a better flavor!
- Cornstarch – Use cornstarch to help thicken the homemade sauce for this Blackstone beef and broccoli recipe.
- Black pepper – The slight kick that black pepper has makes it a great addition for this recipe.
- Sesame oil – Sesame oil has a very strong and distinct flavor, so make sure you measure out the exact amount you need. Because of it’s flavor, it is not recommended to substitute with another oil.
- White rice – This is optional, but beef and broccoli stir fry is easiest to serve over white rice.
- Broccoli – Fresh broccoli is best when making this yummy Blackstone dinner recipe.
- Steak – You can really use any cut of steak that you want. We like using tri-tip, flank steak, strip steak, or ribeye.
- Vegetable oil – Use a little vegetable oil or another high heat oil to sauté the beef and broccoli on the Blackstone.
How to Make Blackstone Beef and Broccoli
Place your steak in the freezer for 30 minutes before cooking. Cold steak slices are the key thinly sliced pieces that stir fry best. If you want to serve this with white rice, go ahead and prepare that while the steak chills.
Preheat your Blackstone griddle to a medium heat.
While it preheats, combine all of the stir fry sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk together until the sugar has fully dissolved.
Then remove the beef from the freezer and slice it into thin bite-sized pieces.
Spread a tablespoon of oil over the hot Blackstone and then add broccoli florets. Sauté for 4-5 minutes, stirring and tossing until the broccoli is a bright green color and tender. Then slide it to the cooler side of the griddle.
Spread another tablespoon of oil on the Blackstone and then add the sliced beef in a single layer over the greased griddle. Sauté 2 minutes on each side until just cooked through.
Add the broccoli to the cooked meat and then pour the previously made sauce over the beef and broccoli. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the sauce thickens.
Take the stir fry off of the griddle and place it into a bowl.
Serve over white rice and garnish with sesame seeds!

What to Serve with Blackstone Beef and Broccoli
Can I use frozen broccoli in this recipe?
While you can absolutely use frozen broccoli in this recipe, we recommend using fresh broccoli for the best results. Frozen broccoli would probably get a bit mushy after being cooked in a stir fry like this one.
