Here’s the deal, you know those broccoli stems you usually throw out? Well you can spiralize them and use them in place of noodles in dishes like this easy Asian stir fry for a low-carb alternative to noodles. There’s lots of spiralizers out there and I’m often asked which I use, I love my Paderno Spiralizer, it’s the easiest way to make zucchini noodles, sweet potato spirals, carrot ribbons and more! If you don’t have one you can also use a mandolin with a julienne blade, or buy a bag of broccoli slaw.

The trick to spiralizing broccoli stems is to find the thickest ones. At least 2-inches in diameter, and cut off any pieces sticking out. Then I used my potato peeler to smooth it out. I placed the thicker end of the stem into the spikes which I found was the key to success.

This recipe was inspired by a meal I had with Phillip Chiang, the man who started the wildly popular Chinese restaurant chain PF Chang’s. I got to sample their Chinese New Year menu which they are serving right now and even got to go behind the scenes and watch them cook up some dishes. Hope you enjoy, happy spiralizing!

Ingredients

For the marinade:

  • 1/4 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/4 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 2 tbsp reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 6 oz total 2-inch thick broccoli stems, spiralized
  • cooking spray
  • 2 5 ounce sirloin steaks, 1” thick
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 teaspoon aji sesame oil
  • 1/4 large white onion, julienned
  • 1 tablespoon garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced

Instructions

  • Combine the hoisin, orange juice and soy sauce with a whisk and reserve. Add sirloin steaks to marinade and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  • While steaks are marinating, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Place the broccoli in a wire basket and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes at a slow boil to blanch. Remove from pot and place in ice water to stop the cooking process. Let sit in ice bath for a couple minutes until chilled.
  • Remove steak from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature for about 5 minutes before cooking. Remove from marinade, reserving the marinade for later.
  • Heat a medium nonstick sauté pan on high heat, spray with oil when hot then place the steaks and cook 3 minutes on each side (for medium-rare). Transfer to a cutting board.
  • Add the reserved marinade to the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, bring to a boil and simmer 2 to 3 minutes.
  • While the steaks are cooking, place the sesame oil in a large nonstick skillet, add the onions, garlic and ginger and cook on high 1 to 2 minutes. Add the broccoli noodles, season with salt and cook 3 minutes. Add the blanched broccoli and cook until hot.
  • Divide the zoodles unto 2 separate plates. Place the beef on a cutting board and cut into thin strips. Lay steak on top of the noodles, top with sauce and serve.

  1. I made this without the ginger and it was bland and tasteless.  Guess it does make a difference!

  2. I must say, slam dunk on this one! I used NY strip because that’s all I had on hand. It was perfect! Tender, flavorful and a good size portion. I will for sure make this again. Thanks Gina!

  3. Gina – any chance this could be in a slow cooker or Insta-Pot using flank steak??  Sounds amazing! Thx!

  4. This was delicious. My husband said it tasted a little sweet. Any suggestions on how to cut the sweetness down?  I’m guessing it was the Sause. Overall 5 stars. I used broccoli slaw (picked out the broccoli pieces) I will double the recipe next time to feed the whole family. Thank you again for a great recipe!!

  5. Very good. We grilled the steak and finished the broccoli on the stove top. Loved the orange marinade.

  6. This comes together well and is a delicious one dish meal. This recipe gave me the opportunity to use my newest kitchen gadget. Using the stalk for noodles is a healthy idea. I do so appreciate your weekly menus. They help me greatly in meal planning.

  7. What is the yield?

  8. Could chicken breast be subbed in for the beef? Has anyone tried?

  9. Hi Gina!
    I just wanted to Thank you for providing these weekly meal ideas, please keep sharing! A grocery list too is so amazing,
    I am a personal trainer and I share these with my clients!
    Thank you so much for all you do to keep us healthy and eating delicious food ????????????????

  10. Omg. Make this you won’t be disappointed. It turned out amazingly delish. I made a bit more of the marinade and turned out to be just right. Yum!! Thanks Gina!

  11. Does step 5 mean you add the steaks back in while the sauce is simmering?

  12. Hi Gina,  I was looking for a stir fry to use for steak I had left over.  This was definitely the ticket.  Neither my husband nor I like broccoli so I made zoodles out of yellow squash and sautéed bell peppers and mushrooms for the veggies.  I heated the steak in the sauce after it was thick and the taste was awesome.  I’ve been craving chinese take out but am now fully satisfied (and full)…  Thank you for this wonderful recipe!

  14. Can you do this in the instant pot 

  15. Looks so yummy, and I just got the spiralizer for my kitchen-aid. Just curious why the sodium and Carbs are so high?

  16. I made this tonight and it was delicious! The veggies are tasty enough to make as a side for other dishes.
