Beef and Broccoli Fried Rice gets you two take-out classics in one - fried rice and Mongolian Beef and Broccoli! A simple Asian Rice Bowl recipe made in under 30 minutes!
Prep all the ingredients before starting: cut broccoli in very small florets and add them in a medium bowl (you will use this bowl later in the recipe). Whisk eggs together in a small bowl. Make the sauce: whisk all the sauge ingredients together in another small bowl. Set aside.
Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a very large skillet (cast iron or non-stick) over medium high heat. Add broccoli and cook undisturbed for about 3 minutes, to color the veggies. Resist the urge to toss until they’re nicely charred. Then, toss occasionally until they are crisp-tender, about 2 more minutes. Once down, transfer back to the bowl.
Reduce heat to medium-low. Add beef and cook, breaking it down in small piece with a spatula, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Transfer cooked beef in a bowl (you can use them together with the broccoli).Add another tablespoon of oil. Add eggs to the skillet and cook, stirring constantly with a rubber spatula until curd forms, about 30 seconds. Eggs will cook quickly so err on the side of caution as they will become rubbery if overcooked.
Add rice and sauce to the skillet. Toss to combine and press down a bit in the skillet.
Cook undisturbed for 3-5 minutes until rice is crispy on one side. Turn off the heat. Return broccoli and beef to the skillet and toss to combine. Serve and enjoy!
You can also use the broccoli stems if you want. Cut them in ribbon with a vegetable peeler. You can sub broccoli with any veggies you like. Bell peppers, carrots, asparagus and peas are great.
You can use ground turkey or chicken instead of beef.
Rice sushi is ideal but jasmine also works.Using leftover rice to fried rice is recommended. Freshly cooked rice doesn't work too well because it is still moist and steamy, and might end up mushy.
For perfect fried rice, it should be refrigerated before use.
