Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mixes Launch as a member of the Healthy Aperture Blogger Network. I received free samples of McCormick Gluten-Free Recipe Mixes from McCormick mentioned in this post. I was compensated for my time. As always, all opinions are my own.

So if you’ve been following along lately, you know about the house selling/house buying/moving to a new state/Hubby already working in the new state saga. You may recall we had a total whirlwind of a week where I pretty much had to drag my boys in and out of the house and feed them all kinds of random junk because everybody and their brother wanted an appointment to come see our house, and all of them between the house of 4 pm and 8 pm. This was both a blessing and a curse, since we did sell our house within six days.

Well, now that the utter and complete chaos is over, we have settled into a routine of only partial chaos. While we thankfully aren’t hitting up fast food joints anymore, without The Hubby or really much family nearby at all, I’m going solo during the week, all while juggling my full-time stay-at-home mom gig (which lately has involved taking care of two little boys that keep tossing their colds and ear infections and pinkeye back and forth while fighting off a weeklong virus myself), my part time work-at-home blogging gig, and all of the inspections and contractors and realtors and notarized documents and everything else involved in selling and buying a house. This means I have to get dinner on the table fast. Sure, with only two little boys to feed who are happy eating bananas or cheese sticks or crackers, I don’t have to get all fancy-shmancy. But I still want something that I think is delicious, as well as something nutritious for all of us.

So when I had the opportunity to try out the new line of McCormick Recipe Mixes that are now available gluten-free, the timing couldn’t have been better. Especially since I can make recipes that are not only easy, but healthy too, because the mixes are made with natural herbs and spices, and no artificial flavors, colors, or MSG. Plus they are certified by the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness, and they are the same price as the original mixes!

McCormick Gluten Free Mixes

Available in four favorite varieties – Taco, Chili, Brown Gravy, and Turkey Gravy – these mixes are perfect for classic recipes, like a basic chili, traditional tacos, a simple roast turkey, or good ol’ mashed potatoes and gravy. But they can also bring a ton of flavor to modern, creative and unique recipes. Come back next week to see how I took one of my family favorite recipes and added a little Mexican spice to it. But for now, how about a simple and flavorful meal from the McCormick recipe vault

Gluten Free Stir Fried Beef and Broccoli was a total hit with The Bug, King Stuff and I. The sauce was made simply with the McCormick Gluten-Free Brown Gravy Mix and some ginger for a bit of Asian flavor, and it coated the beef and broccoli with thick, rich, saucy goodness. The Bug isn’t the biggest beef fan and King Stuff isn’t the biggest broccoli fan, but they both cleared their plates because the stir fry was so tasty. I love anything that gets my kiddies to eat their protein and veggies, but I also loved eating it myself. Next time I just have to make sure The Hubby is around to enjoy it with us.

Beef and Broccoli

Savory Beef and Broccoli features tender strips of beef that are simmered in a luscious gravy spiked with ginger. Ready in 30 minutes!
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 14 minutes
Total: 24 minutes


  • 1 pound broccoli , cut into florets (about one head of broccoli)
  • 1 pound flank steak , thinly sliced
  • ½ cup beef stock or broth
  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce , gluten free if needed
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons sesame seed oil
  • 1 ½ tablespoons cornstarch
  • 3 garlic cloves , minced
  • 2 teaspoons dry ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoon oyster sauce , gluten free if needed
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds , lightly toasted if desired
  • 2 tablespoons sliced green onions , for garnish


  • Over low to medium heat add 1 tablespoon of avocado oil to a saute pan. Allow it to get hot within 2-3 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli. Toss for 9-12 minutes or until tender, but still crisp. Transfer the broccoli to a plate.
  • To the saute pan add 1 tablespoon of the oil.
  • Add the steak to the pan without overlapping. You may need to cook the steak in batches. Allow it to cook for 1 minute. Flip the steak over and cook for an additional minute or until the pink is gone. Transfer the beef to the plate of broccoli.
  • To the saute pan add the beef stock, soy sauce, honey, sesame seed oil, cornstarch, garlic, ginger, oyster sauce, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Stir until combined and thick. This will take 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Add the broccoli and beef back to the saute pan. Stir until everything is combined.
  • Remove the saute pan from the heat. Top with sesame seeds and green onions. Serve over rice or noodles.


Ingredient Notes
  • Flank Steak: You can also use thinly sliced skirt steak.
  • Ginger: Feel free to use about a Tablespoon of grated fresh ginger.
  • Soy Sauce and Oyster Sauce: If you are gluten free, you’ll need to use gluten free versions of these, as many standard versions are made with wheat. They are readily available from well-known brands like Kikkoman. For the oyster sauce, you can use additional soy sauce, or substitute fish sauce (which is saltier, so use less or balance with more honey) or gluten free teriyaki sauce (which is slightly sweeter).

  1. Moving is never fun and after a zillion military moves I am glad to be planted in one spot lol. I love this recipe for two reasons – one because it’s my favorite take-out meal and two, it’s easy to come together and get on the table. Putting it on my menu for sure!

  2. Love that you turned the gravy mix into an asian sauce! I would have never thought to do that. I make a lot of stir-fries, but I never really plan in advance what type of sauce I’ll make. It usually just becomes soy sauce + sriracha. haha. This is such a better idea!

  3. Linda | Brunch with Joy

    Yum! We love beef and broccoli stir fry, and always take anything that will be ready in minutes. Hang in there, lady.

  4. Can’t WAIT to try this. My husband and I just got Chinese takeout last night and, of course, ordered beef and broccoli. I just can’t pass it up! It’ll be nice to make this at home instead of spending major $$ and calories on takeout. 🙂
