How to Make An Omelet with Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry

From start to finish, this beef and broccoli omelet should take only 10 minutes to prepare, cook, and serve.

To cook this meal, toss your stir-fried beef and broccoli florets in a skillet or pan, make some omelet, and arrange the stir-fry on one half of your omelet. With a spatula, fold the omelet in half to cover and rest on top of the filling. That’s it, you’re done!

If you need a basic tutorial, here’s an easy way to make a traditional omelet. You can then dive into this recipe with confidence.

Instead of sliced steak, I make beef and veggie stir-fry with ground beef as my protein because I simply don’t have the patience to do all of the slicing and searing. Ground beef is a cheaper red meat option and tastes just as good as regular beef. Best of all, it requires none of the prep work except a little stirring.

Variations

This Slow-Cooked Beef and Broccoli Recipe also makes a great filling for your omelet. It’s a versatile dish, so don’t be afraid to experiment with other leftovers and ingredients you may have sitting in your fridge or pantry. Here are some ideas:

  • Replace ground beef with shredded chicken or ground turkey.
  • Garnish with chopped olives or fresh herbs like cilantro, parsley, or green onion.
  • Sprinkle some crushed cashews, sesame seeds, or bacon bits for more flavor and texture.
  • Veggie-fy the dish by adding a variety of additional vegetables like bell peppers, cabbage, spinach, kale, or button mushrooms.
  • Make it creamier by adding shaved cheese like cheddar, mozzarella, romano cheese, or parmesan cheese. You can also use sour cream.
  • Add some heat with sriracha, red pepper flakes, or chili garlic sauce.

Expert Tips

  • Add seasonings. To make your beef and broccoli omelet even more flavorful, season it with chili flakes, garlic, ginger, or 1/8 teaspoon salt or black pepper.
  • Fold gently. With a spatula, carefully fold your egg mixture omelet-style over the stir-fry. Press down gently to seal the edges, aiming for a neat and tight fold to avoid the filling from spilling out while the omelet holds its half-moon shape.

How to Store This Recipe

As with most omelet recipes, this ground beef and broccoli omelet is best served fresh and warm. But this tasty dish still makes excellent — yup, you guessed it right — leftovers! Allow your omelet to cool at room temperature before transferring into an airtight container and storing in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

Reheat on the stove or in the oven. If you’re using the microwave, heat in 30-second intervals and stir in between. Be careful not to overheat so you won’t end up with a tough or rubbery omelet. For stovetop reheating, add olive or coconut oil to a pan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally until heated through.

What to Serve with Ground Beef and Broccoli Omelet

This easy beef and broccoli omelet is great on its own but is even better when served with a variety of complementary dishes and sides. Below are some ideas:

  • Create a well-rounded breakfast with a slice of toasted psyllium husk bread.
  • Serve with cauliflower rice, steamed white or brown rice, or quinoa for a hearty meal.
  • Enjoy for dinner or lunch with a fresh green salad with light vinaigrette or sesame ginger dressing.
  • Slice some ripe avocado or top with creamy guacamole for added healthy fats.
  • Enjoy alongside a warm bowl of egg drop soup, miso soup, or veggie soup for a comforting meal.
  • Serve with kimchi, sauerkrautor pickled veggies for a tangy kick.
