beef and broccoli stir fry recipeA few weeks ago I bought a new cookbook, called Deliciously Organic and I love it.  I have made a few recipes out of this book and they all were delicious, (as the title states) healthy, and organic.  I have bought organic products for many years.  Long before the cool kids did; my friends made fun of me for paying more for our food.  “Let them laugh” I used to think to myself.  I have always believed that what we put into our bodies should be free of harmful chemicals and pesticides.  I strongly believe that we are what we eat and I choose to eat organically.  I remember when my now 7 year old was a baby, I would drive an hour buy him organic milk.  Times have changed, and organic products are so much easier to obtain. I am grateful that I can now buy my organic milk at my Costco just a few miles away.  While, I still do not buy everything organic, I live by the 80/20 rule.

This beef and broccoli stri-fry takes minutes to cook, but like all stir-frys, you need to have everything ready ahead of time.  Have everything prepped and chopped before you even turn on the stove.  In fact, I knew that I had a busy afternoon ahead of me on the day that we were having this for dinner, so I did all of my prep in the morning and dinner was on the table in less than 20 minutes.

coconut oilThis is the kind of coconut oil that I use.  Make sure that when you buy coconut oil that it is unrefined and centrifuged.  One of the best things about this book was introducing me to coconut oil.  It can be used over fairly high heat making it good (and healthy) to cook with.  When you open the jar, it has the sweet aroma of coconut, but I cannot taste it when I have cooked with it.

Thank you Carrie for writing such a great book.  It already has splatters all over it!  The sign of a great cookbook.

  1. this looks fantastic. i have never made a stir-fry from scratch like this. I normally use a prepared teriyaki sauce to make it real easy. but this doesn’t look too involved and looks awesome! I love the combination of broccoli and beef.

    This looks like a delicious recipe Bree. I stopped eating beef over a year ago. Do you think this would be just as good with chicken? Also, are you able to find most of your organic products at Costco? I’ve been considering joining either Costco or BJ’s.

    • bakedbree says:

      Absolutely. It would be delicious with chicken.

    • bakedbree says:

      Also, I do get a lot of organic products at Costco. I buy all of my milk, eggs, and apple juice there. That alone is worth the membership for me since I go through an obscene amount of those things. I know that they also have chicken, beef, and other items too.

    I have the exact same views on food as you. I read your links to your previous posts about why you choose organic and natural products. I am newly married (read: not rollin in the moolah) and there are things that my husband and I have decided to cut back on (cable, eating out, etc.) so we can buy organic and natural products. I too LOVE LOVE LOVE to bake and make unhealthy things, but when it comes to our daily life, we eat pretty mostly natural and organic foods. I cannot wait to try this recipe out! My husband is always saying, I do not cook enough beef, so he will love this. I may just have to pick up that cook book. Are most of the recipes as yummy as this?

  4. that looks so delicious. i’ve been tempted to buy some coconut oil– happy to hear that it doesn’t make everything taste like a pina colada!

    • bakedbree says:

      lol… it doesn’t taste like a pina colada. That was what I thought too. It definitely smells like coconut, but I cannot taste it.

  5. This looks beyond delicious and as a vegetarian I can just incorporate tempeh for the steak and enjoy it just the same.

    BTW – I was recently introduced to coconut oil as well and it is phenomenal. I use it in granola bars/energy bars and you cannot taste it.

    • bakedbree says:

      Tofu, only vegetables, this would be great with anything. I am loving coconut oil too. I am going to bake with it today.

    I am always looking for good stir-fry recipes!! Looks awesome! I’ve loved everything I have tried of yours!! Kuddos to you on using grass-fed beef! We sell grass-fed beef and eggs from our farm in west texas!!

  8. Jenn says:

    I love finding new stir fry combinations.

    keep up the good work!

  9. I haven’t tried using coconut oil in my stir fry dishes yet. I think I’ll pick some up the next time I’m at the health food store.

    Oh man. Of course I read this post at 10:30 at night! Is it too late to make this? :) I like the looks of this one. I always feel like the asian recipes that I cook are missing something. I think that this might be what I’ve been missing! Thank you!

    Looks like a fabulous stir fry. I love that ingredient list – so fresh and not full of sugar. I am always looking for stir fries that aren’t all sugar in the sauces, and they are sometimes hard to find! This one really sounds great.

  13. Shelby says:

    This looks delicious! Trying this one today. Thanks Bree!

  14. Marissa says:

    I absolutely love stir-fried beef and veggies! I need to grab some coconut oil though. I have never used arrowroot before either. I cannot wait to try this!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for the introduction to coconut oil! I’ll be looking for that the next time I’m in my natural foods section. I’ve never used arrowroot either… I’ll have to do some reading on what it’s for – now I’m curious. Another great recipe – and great recipe book! Thanks again.

      I love this book. I am making 3 recipes out of it today. Coconut oil and I have become friends. Today I am going to try baking with it.

  16. What a beautiful post! I’m so glad your book has splatters on it – such a huge compliment!

    Gonna try this one this weekend! I’m curious….I bought this same brand of coconut oil at Whole Foods a while back and I definitely could taste and smell coconut in the one and only dish I made with it. I couldn’t even eat it! I love coconut…..but not in enchiladas! Do you think I used too much?? Am I just not used to it?? I know it’s really good for you, but honestly can’t seem to muster up the nerve to use it again!

    • bakedbree says:

      I am not really sure to be honest with you. I have used it in dishes like stir fry and curry where coconut would go well. I am not afraid to try it in other things, and I tend to use a very small amount. It for sure smells like coconut, but I love coconut so I don’t mind.

    I made a version of this dish last night. I didn’t get to eat any of it, but my family reports that it was good. I’d like to make it again!

  21. Tiffany says:

    Looks delicious… is there something I could use n place of arrowroot? I have all the other ingredients needed :)

  22. Justina says:

    Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, pictures of products you used & the extra info on the coconut oil. I used regular steak (not grass fed), a different brand of sherry, sesame oil, & arrowroot & frozen stir-fry veggies from Birds Eye, & the rest of my ingredients were the exact brands you used. It turned out great! Your pictures helped me find the ingredients at Whole Foods. This was my first time using ginger, sherry, sesame oil, arrowroot, & coconut oil. I’m trying to get pregnant & your recipe was a bit of a starter kit for organic products I should have in my pantry. I look forward to cooking more of your recipes & trying out recommended products. I’m a total amateur in the kitchen & I’m so happy I was able to cook this so easily.

    • bakedbree says:

      I am so glad that you found it helpful. If you are on the path to organic eating, you should buy the book. A great resource.
