Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 lb top sirloin beef steak tips
  • 3 cups fresh chopped broccoli
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh ginger divided
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos or GF Tamari Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot powder optional

Instructions

  • Before you begin, be sure beef and broccoli are prepared. I cut my steak into 1 inch cubes, and my broccoli into various sizes.
  • Begin by heating a large skillet to medium high heat. Once hot, add coconut oil, 2 tbsp fresh ginger and garlic.
  • Add beef and broccoli. Begin to sauté until sides of beef begin to brown (about 3-4 minutes), and reduce heat to medium.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together sauce: soy or coconut aminos, sesame oil, vinegar, chili garlic sauce, ground ginger, honey and 1 tbsp fresh ginger. Toss into skillet and be sure to coat the beef.
  • Let simmer another 5-8 minutes, or until beef is cooked to your liking. It only took me an additional 5 minutes to have medium – medium well cooked steak. If sauce is too thin, you can add 1 tbsp arrowroot starch to 1 tbsp water. Toss in to skillet, and cook until thickened.
  • Serve hot, over rice or cauliflower rice. Garnish with toasted sesame seeds (optional).
