Shopping List
    For the Beef
  • 1 pound flank steak
  • 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
  • 2 tablespoons + 1/2 teaspoon avocado oil or grapeseed oil (divided)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, finely chopped
  • 12 ounces broccoli florets (cut any large florets into smaller pieces) For the Sauce
  • 1/2 cup coconut aminos (such as Big Tree Farms, Note 1)
  • 33333333/100000000 cup water (or beef broth)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar or honey
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch (or arrowroot)
  • salt and chili flakes, to taste

Instructions
  1. Step 1: Use a sharp knife to carefully slice the meat against the grain into thin pieces. Cut any very long pieces in half to make them shorter.
  2. Step 2: Place the sliced steak in a bowl and toss evenly with the 1/2 tablespoon of cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon of oil. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  3. Step 3: Stir together all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside. Note: Season very lightly with the salt, as we will taste and adjust the salt at the end if needed.
  4. Step 4: Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once it's sizzling hot, add the steak strips, garlic, and ginger. Sear the meat on both sides until browned, about 3 to 4 minutes total. Once done, transfer all of the meat mixture to a plate. Note: To avoid overcrowding the pan, cook the steak in batches. Overcrowding will steam the meat rather than giving it the nice sear we want.
  5. Step 5: Pour the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the empty pan. Add the broccoli florets and cook for 3 to 4 minutes total, stirring only every minute or so. Add a small splash of water to the pan after the first few minutes to help the broccoli soften. Cook until all the water has evaporated. The broccoli should still have some crunch to it.
  6. Step 6: Add the beef back into the pan with the broccoli and pour in the sauce. Stir for 1 minute, or until the sauce thickens and everything is warmed through. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.
  7. Serve: Enjoy over a big bowl of warm rice.

Recipe Notes

Note 1: Coconut aminos are ideal here, but if you don't have it, you could try substituting with a combination of 1/4 cup tamari + 1/4 cup water. You may need to add an extra 1/2 tablespoon of sugar.
