Looking for a quick and easy dinner idea that doesn’t require a lot of dishes or prep? Then this one pot beef and broccoli dinner is just what you need.
When my husband and I started on our low carb journey, I worried over what I would come up with for dinner. Would it take me tons of time to cook meals? Would there be a lot of prep involved, or would there be a lack of flavor?That’s not the case at all with this easy and delicious one pot beef and broccoli dinner. It’s my lower carb take on a traditional meal, plus there’s not much prep involved and only requires dirtying one pot.
We personally like to eat our one pot beef and broccoli with a big heaping serving of cauliflower rice. But if you and your family aren’t following a low-carb diet, no worries! Just serve it over some steamed rice or quinoa, or on top of garlic noodles and you have a very filling, super simple weeknight dinner that everyone will love.
