Bring your favorite takeout delicacy to your home kitchen with this easy Beef and Broccoli recipe. Inspired by the Chinese-American restaurant staple, this delicious steak recipe stars thinly sliced sirloin or strip steak marinated in a spicy soy, lime, and sesame sauce. The tender pieces of beef are seared quickly in a skillet, then tossed with bright green, steamed broccoli and extra sauce.

Best part? The whole thing takes just 30 minutes to make. Served over rice (or fried rice!) and sprinkled with scallions, it’s a fast and fresh weeknight meal that will quickly make its way into your regular rotation.
