This Asian inspired bowl of spicy, saucy ground turkey and broccoli simmered in ginger, garlic, hoisin and soy sauce only requires a few ingredients, and one pot to make.
You’ve never heard of hoisin sauce? That’s ok, this a judgement free zone.
It is a thick, sweet and salty Chinese sauce that is similar to barbecue sauce, but with no smokiness. I love it! You can get it at any grocery store.
Look how much you learned tonight!
- 1 1/2 lbs ground turkey
- 1 tsp red chili flakes (more if you like it spicy)
- 4 cloves garlic, finely minced
- 1 inch fresh ginger, finely minced
- 2-3 Tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp hoisin sauce, plus more to drizzle on top
- 1 Tbsp sesame oil
- 1 head broccoli, divided into florets and stems, chopped
- cooked white rice (make what you’ll need but 2 cups uncooked should do it)
- toasted sesame seeds to garnish
- In a large pan (that has a lid), preheat to medium-high. Add turkey and let sizzle a bit for a minute or so.
- Break up turkey with the back of a wooden spoon (not too much), and stir a bit. Let sizzle some more and brown up.
- Add chili flakes, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, hoisin and sesame oil. Stir to combine and cook until turkey is no longer pink.
- Add broccoli stems and stir into turkey. Let cook about 2 minutes on medium heat.
- Add broccoli florets and stir. Cover and cook until broccoli is tender. (Add a little soy sauce or water to the pan if there’s not liquid at the bottom to steam the broccoli).
- Serve over rice with a drizzle of hoisin and a sprinkle of sesame seeds.
