One of the things I miss the most after being diagnosed with Celiac disease is the convenience of being able to eat anything, anywhere, anytime. Pre-gluten free days, the only question was “What are you hungry for?”, or “Do they have something the kids will eat?”.

Now, getting ready to go out to eat is similar to preparing for battle. You have lists, plans, strategies. And back up lists, plan, and strategies just in case.

When I could still eat gluten, we’d order take-out occasionally. It’s not that it was a weekly occurrence, but it was nice to be able to order take-out on a whim. One of our favorite take-out foods was Chinese food.

I’ve been able to create gluten free sweet & sour chicken balls, as well as gluten free restaurant style fried rice, but both of those dishes do take quite a bit of time to make. Sometimes, you want something quick, and this Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry can be prepared in less time than it would take to pick up take-out.

Some options when making this gluten free Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry:

  • We like to serve this stir fry over rice. I admit that I have a problem cooking rice on the stove top – it always ends up mushy. What saved me is when I learned how to make Baked Rice from My Gluten-Free Kitchen. It’s a pretty foolproof technique.
  • If you want more veggies in your stir fry, feel free to add a diced red pepper or more carrot. I like to stretch the stir-fry a little further by adding a few more vegetables when I make it. If you’re adding a diced pepper, cook it at the same time as the onions and carrots.
  • Feel free to sprinkle the top with green onions and/or sesame seeds before serving.

Notes

To save time when making this gluten free Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry, I often buy the beef pre-cut into strips, and a bag of cut broccoli florets.
