I don’t know about you all, but Chinese take out has been one of my biggest cravings since finding out I had food allergies.  

Lucky for me, a lot of Chinese food is easy to make gluten free and dairy free at home.  

I also have issues with too much sodium so making Chinese food at home allows me to control how much salt goes into the meal.  

This beef and broccoli was my first attempt at making my own Chinese food at home and let me just say, it did not disappoint!  

I was really surprised how easy it was to make as well.  You cook the beef in a pan, mix up the ingredients for the sauce while the beef cooks, add the broccoli and sauce to the beef and there you have it.  

Delicious home cooked Chinese food.  The sauce really is the magic behind the whole dish.  

The amount of flavor that comes together from just a few simple ingredients is so amazing. This is also probably one of my favorite ways to eat broccoli.  

Beef and Broccoli - Gluten Free, Dairy Free, & Soy Free

Don’t get me wrong, broccoli is one of my favorite veggies all by itself, but when it’s soaked in this sauce it just takes it to a whole new level.  

I might just start serving the broccoli with the sauce as a side dish all the time.  This beef and broccoli has me really excited to try more Chinese food recipes at home.  

I’m thinking orange chicken might be on the list soon since it’s one of my all time favorites. 

What are some of your favorite Chinese dishes to make at home?   I can’t wait to hear about it and hope you all love this beef and broccoli recipe as much as my family does!!

  1. This may be a stupid question, but I’m new to food allergies so I am not sure how all of this works. How can this recipe be labeled soy free if it calls for soy sauce? Is gluten free soy sauce also soy free?

    1. Hi Natasha, the coconut aminos that I recommend in this recipe is soy free. You can purchase other gluten free soy sauce substitutes that are not soy free, but the coconut aminos is. I hope this helps! ☺

    1. Hi Adelina, I’m so happy to hear that the whole family enjoyed it! Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi Damon, I usually find this at my local grocery store in the health food section. You can also grab it online. I also have the kind we use linked above in the recipe ingredients section.
