Mix 1/4 cup soy sauce with 1/4 up sherry- or use apple or orange juice, and 1 tablespoon honey. marinate the cooked or raw  beef in that-

Saute a clove of garlic in oil- add some sliced onion if you like

If the steak is raw- cook it now after draining the marinade then remove steak from pan

Add the broccoli, carrot and scallion-saute for a couple of minutes

 

If the steak was cooked- drain it now and ad the steak to the veggies

Add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch to the reserved marinade and add to the stir fry

Cook for only a couple of minutes till sauce is thickened and clear so the cornstarch is clear.

Another thing that could work is a frittata: eggs, steak, potato, broccoli, bell peppers, scallions

Stir-fry was the first thing to my mind too!

You can use any veggies you like. We call it “clean out the fridge stir-fry”.

STuffed bell peppers?

Any grains? rice, quinoa, barley etc?

Take a grain, add a bit of cheese that you have and finely diced and cooked broccoli, chopped scallion add a bit of the tomato puree What spices do you have? oregano, basil, garlic, salt? mix together and stuff the pepper. 

Bake till soft- it can take a while at about 375. to speed it up you can microwave the pepper first till it softens.

Do you have any pasta on hand? One of my go-to meals for one is a bowl of pasta with tender-crisp veggies and a poached egg as my pasta sauce Yum!

EDIT: I like to use asparagus for this dish, but I think broccoli would work well.
