    For being a frozen dinner, it was really good. I used a skillet to prepare it versus the microwave and it was delish. At first the meat was deceiving and looked like it wasn’t going to be good. But since I was all in already, I waited and YUM. It’s got a nice kick to it too. I would definitely buy this again in the future for when I’m too lazy to cook.

    I love Broccoli and Beef and I absolutely love the flavor in this one. Just like it says, it is sweet and spicy. Heading back to TJ’s to buy some more for my freezer. I also cooked it in the skillet and had it on rice. Delicious!!

  3. JoAnn

    Just tried beef and broccoli. Very good

  4. Bernadette

    Loved it! I’m not a big fan of beef so I hope to see chicken & broccoli soon! At the very least bottle up the sauce and sell it separately. I’ll buy it!

  5. Helena Tetzeli

    #1- it says 6 servings. Make it half that many
    #2- It is not “mildly sweet and spicy”. We love spice, but this seared our tongues so that we could not detect sweet or any other flavors. Maybe we got a bad batch?

    We love TJ’s but will not buy this again.

  6. John V. Bond

    The only way you’ll get 6 servings from this product is if you only eat 2-3 pieces of the beef. We got a little over 2 servings and we were still left hungry. It’s really good but the serving size is very misleading:

    Meat just looked so questionable

  8. Peter barczak

    Wonderful.
    Spicey enough, sweet enough.
    Served over rice.
    Could have easily eaten the whole bag at one sitting.
    The meat crisped up nicely.
    Better than most beef and broccoli at Chinese restaurants.
    Had a real Chinese food flavor.

    The beef was absolutely disgusting – it never softened (maybe I overcooked it because I thought it was still frozen?). I gave it the one star because the broccoli was fine and we enjoyed the flavor of the sauce. Will definitely NOT buy again. Also, how hard would it be to give a measurement of how much cooking oil to add? It’s doubtful that anyone is only going to cook a portion of the package at a time. We ate just the broccoli and the sauce and it was definitely just enough for two people. If we had purchased this at Costco, we would be going back for a refund.

    I wish they had put the “spicy” in red or different font than “sweet.” I didn’t see it in cursive and prepared it for my family. It was way too spicy for anyone but my husband.

    Quite terrible…in so many ways. We love other TJs frozen asian foods, but this is a big fat fail. The “beef” looks like cafeteria mystery meat, and the sauce is just…AWFUL. Pass on this one!

  12. Rob

    I don’t know how anyone is possibly saying this is spicy. The sauce is WRETCHED. Absolutely swimming in fake sweetener. No proper umami flavoring at all whatsoever. The beef and broccoli came out great if you cooked it properly. This dish could be amazing, but the sauce DEFINITELY needs some work.

  13. Serenity Guedel

    This was not as expected. We gave it a few tries, but never warmed to it at all. And the portions are not really as described.

  14. Anonymous

    Not very good at all. We prepared it in a skillet as per the instructions. Beef has a starchy coating that’s not appealing, and the sauce is sour and tangy – not in a good way. My wife will only order Beef and Broccoli when we eat Chinese food. She didn’t finish her first serving and didn’t want to keep the leftovers. I tried it and have to agree. This is a definite pass for us.

    I will premise this by saying that I enjoy maybe 90% of the prepared foods I try from Trader Joes. That said, I was very disappointed in the Beef and Broccoli, purchased April 2022. I stir-fried it in a quasi-wok, under medium heat, very close to how instructions indicated. Overall Flavor was ok, and broccoli itself was good, for frozen broccoli. However the beef was terrible. Not only being Tough (which many have commented on) but there was Grizzle/Sinew in nearly every bite of beef. My hunch is that very low-grade beef/cuts were used to produce this current version of the product. Sorry to have to report… I love Trader Joe’s, and nearly everything I try there!
