Beef with Garlic Sauce

Pass on the takeout and try this Beef with Garlic Sauce! Flavorful, filling, quick, and super easy! Your family will surely ask for seconds!

“It’s like a better version of restaurant beef and broccoli”

This what Mr. FFF said and being compared to takeout might be a new life goal completed.

I love me some low carb keto beef and broccoli or curry beef and broccoli, but when you make it with an extra garlic hit? OMG it takes it to a 20 on the scale of 1 to delicious.

I don’t know quite what that means but, trust me, this is good.

Not to mention the easiest beef dish you will ever make. None of that fanciness that comes with grilling a big coffee rubbed steak.

Just easy dinner deliciousness!

Dinnertime is sometimes SUCH a hassle, am I right?! When work, school, and all your life commitments are over for the day, all you want is a healthy, delicious and filling meal to feed your family!

It’s SO flavorful, healthy, protein packed, and easy; there’s really not much you won’t love about this dinner recipe!

Ingredients Needed

Cooking up delicious food that’s bursting with flavor doesn’t have to be difficult. Today’s beef recipe is SO easy and incredibly tasty, and only requires a handful of ingredients to make it a reality. Here’s the beef with garlic sauce ingredients you will need:

Olive OilFresh Minced GarlicFlank Steak, thinly slicedCornstarchReduced Sodium Soy SauceSesame OilGarlic Powder

How to make Beef With Garlic Sauce


In a large pan, heat up the oil and add in the garlic. Cook until it is golden brown, which should take a couple of minutes. 

Cook the Beef

Toss the beef with cornstarch in a large bowl. Once the garlic is browned, add in the beef and cook until it’s browned. Add in the soy sauce and sesame oil and continue cooking until the sauce is bubbly and thickened. 


Top with garlic powder if you desire, serve it up and DEVOUR!

Beef with Hot Garlic Sauce Recipe Substitutions

Make it Paleo: If you need this recipe to align with the paleo diet, simply replace the soy sauce with coconut aminos.

Make it Low Carb: This recipe is already an easy and tasty low carb meal, so I suggest serving it over cauliflower rice instead of regular rice to keep it low carb!

Make it Vegan: If you’re looking for ALL the flavor without the meat, I suggest using tofu in place of the beef in this recipe. 

Make it Spicy: If you are a fan of heat, I suggest adding some sriracha to the garlic sauce, or adding some on top when you dig in!

What to serve alongside Beef with Garlic Sauce

This deliciously flavorful beef recipe is great on its own with a side of instant pot steamed broccoli, BUT I do suggest serving it with something that can sop up all that saucy goodness! I recommend serving the beef alongside a pot of hot jasmine rice, cooked quinoa, or cauliflower rice for a low carb, keto friendly option. Check out how to cook cauliflower rice to learn some easy ways to make it!

How to meal prep Beef and Garlic Sauce

Once you’ve allowed the beef and sauce to cool COMPLETELY, I recommend spooning some of it into meal sized containers with some cooked rice and broccoli. Seal the containers with their lids and store them in the fridge for up to 3 days until you’re ready to reheat them and enjoy!
