Sometimes, Even I Order Takeout

Okay, confession time. I have a secret… Every now and then, I indulge in takeout. I know, I know. I have a collection of amazing recipes on this blog and I once dedicated an entire day to making 50 freezer meals. But even I have those lazy days when I simply don’t want to do anything. All I want to do is veg out. As a mom, I occasionally need a time out from the kitchen.

Unveiling the Inspiration

The last time we ordered takeout from my favorite Japanese spot, I looked down at my bowl of tantalizing teriyaki goodness and thought to myself, “There must be a healthier way to enjoy this dish.” Previously, I had prepared an incredible paleo beef and broccoli recipe, so I knew that creating a teriyaki version would be a piece of cake.

How to Make Beef and Broccoli Teriyaki

Slice, Toss, and Bag

To create this delectable dish, start by slicing the steak into thin strips. Toss the strips in cornstarch and then bag them up. Next, chop up some fresh broccoli, or if you prefer, use frozen broccoli florets for an even easier option. Finally, prepare the sauce ahead of time, bag it up, and you’re good to go! It couldn’t be any simpler!

The Queen of Freezer Meals Strikes Again

I’ve earned my title as the queen of freezer meals, and this beef and broccoli teriyaki recipe is no exception. It freezes perfectly and cooks to perfection in a nonstick pan or wok whenever you’re ready to devour it. You can safely store it in your freezer for about 3-4 months. Just remember to label the bag with the date if you don’t plan on eating it soon, although trust me—you won’t want to wait to enjoy this mouthwatering dish!

I usually serve this dish with a side of rice. However, you can also try it with quinoa or a refreshing salad if you prefer to keep the meal gluten-free.
