If your ultimate favorite protein meat is steak, then like me, you are probably looking for a variety of ways to add flavor and occasionally change up the dish. Generally, when that happens, it’s always great to first consider adding extra veggies – greens in specific. Broccoli is a standard favorite, but does it go with steak?
Broccoli is a delicious and healthy green vegetable for adding to any steak meal, such as stir-fry or fried sirloin. It complements the food delectably and can be combined with the main dish or eaten on the side. It adds flavor, texture, and added nutritional wholesomeness to any steak meal.
You often will not find steak recipes that mention broccoli because many people are afraid of food variety. However, most recipes allow you to toss some broccoli florets right into the meal, and if you want to play it safe, keep your steamed or roasted broccoli on the side and enjoy.
Let us look at some tasty steak meal ideas with the yummy tree-shaped vegetable – broccoli.
Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
The exciting thing about adding broccoli to a steak stir-fry is that there are so many variations of stir-fries, including spaghetti and rice ones. Then there are steak stir-fries that don’t include any carbs at all. Broccoli goes well with all of them, both added into the meals and a side dish for that extra veg.
