Low Carb Beef and Broccoli Noodles

Cooking with the whole vegetable—scraps included, broccoli stems become noodles!

If you have a spiralizer or mandoline with a julienne blade, use that, but a knife also works: Simply cut the stems into thin planks, then slice them into long noodles. The texture of broccoli isn’t watery like zucchini noodles tend to be. They can really hold their own with boldly flavored hoisin sauce—made naturally sweet with fresh-squeezed orange juice—and seared strips of steak. And don’t skip the ginger! It really pulls this dish together.


•2 heads broccoli, florets separated (2 c.) and stems peeled
•1/4 c. hoisin sauce
•1/4 c. Unsweetened fresh-squeezed orange juice
•2 tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce
•2 (5 oz. each) sirloin steaks, 1" thick
•Kosher salt
•Cooking spray
•1 tsp. sesame oil
•1/4 large white onion, sliced thin
•3 cloves garlic, minced
•1 tbsp. fresh ginger, minced


Step 1

If using a spiralizer, spiralize the broccoli stems. If not, cut into ⅛"-thick planks, then slice into “noodles.”

Step 2

In a large bowl, whisk hoisin, orange juice, and soy sauce. Add steaks, cover, and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 3

While steaks are marinating, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and create an ice bath in a large bowl. Boil broccoli florets for about 2 to 3 minutes or until bright green and just tender. Transfer broccoli to the ice bath until cool, then drain.

Step 4

Remove steaks from the refrigerator and transfer to a plate. Leave the marinade in the bowl.

Step 5

Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat and grease with cooking spray. When hot, cook the steaks for about 3 minutes on each side (for medium-rare) or until a thermometer reads 130º in the thickest part of the steaks. Transfer steaks to a cutting board to let rest for 10 minutes, then slice into thin strips.

Step 6

In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, bring reserved marinade to a boil and simmer until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 7

Add sesame oil to skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and ginger and cook on high, 1 to 2 minutes. Add broccoli noodles, season with salt, and cook for about 3 minutes. Add blanched florets and cook until hot, then add the thickened marinade and toss to coat.

Step 8

Divide the noodles between 2 plates. Top with sliced steaks and serve.
