The result is a family-friendly recipe that comes together in mere minutes. It will soon become your go-to family dinner recipe.

Beef and Broccoli Casserole Tips

You don’t have to use ground beef. This casserole will taste just as good if you use ground turkey, ground chicken, or ground pork.

Or, take this recipe up a notch, sear some steak strips, and use them instead of ground beef.

Since the broccoli and beef bake together in the oven, this is an entire meal in one dish. If you really (and I mean, really) love cheese, then serve this creamy casserole with a side of cheesy cauliflower.

This beef and broccoli casserole also tastes delicious the next day as a lunch. Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.

Ingredients:

  • 1½ pounds ground beef
  • ⅓ cup onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 cup fresh broccoli florets
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 1 8oz. package cream cheese
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Red pepper flakes (optional)

STEP 1: Brown the ground beef together with onions & garlic, crumbling the meat with a spoon or spatula until the meat is fully cooked. Spoon out excess fat, if necessary, or soak up with a paper towel. Set meat aside.

STEP 2: While meat is browning, bring 6 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add broccoli & cook for 3-4 minutes; drain well.

STEP 3: Return saucepan to stove and reduce heat to low. Whisk together heavy cream, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese and constantly stir until cheese is melted. Add salt & pepper.

STEP 4: Mix together meat mixture, broccoli, and cheese, then add to greased 9×13 casserole dish; top with mozzarella cheese.

STEP 5: Bake at 375 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until cheese is melted and lightly browned. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes to taste.
