Carissa Stanton is a foodie and Trader Joe’s fan who shares recipes on TikTok (@broccyourbody).

In a recent video, she showed her fans how to make a 20-minute beef and broccoli dinner using ingredients exclusively from Trader Joe’s.

Carissa started by making a sauce with fresh garlic and ginger.

She added the shop’s popular chili onion crunch, “that we all know and love.”

“It’s a Trader Joe’s staple,” she added.

In a pan, she heated avocado oil and sautéed chopped broccoli.

She set that aside, added shaved beef steak and browned it for two minutes.

“This is also delicious with chicken,” Carissa recommended.

She lowered the heat slightly, added the sauce, and simmered until the beef was cooked through.

Next she stirred through the broccoli.

Carissa served the finished dinner over rice and topped it with sesame seeds.


Her fans shared their own successes with the recipe in the comments.

“I just did this and it keeps running,” someone wrote.

Another shared: “Made this tonight! I followed the recipe exactly and it was so easy! Everyone loved it!”

“Did this and it clapped,” agreed a third.

Food under five dollars

Carissa’s recipe made four servings for less than $20.

The most expensive ingredient was a pound of shaved beef steak for $10.99.

Other ingredients, like the chili-onion crunch ($4.90), initially had a low initial cost but could always be used in other recipes.

In total, dinner would have cost about $20 to prepare, making each serving cost $5.

Many foodies love Trader Joe’s because of its affordable prices and unique product selection.
