Ginger Beef with broccoli
Confession.....I don't like to spend gobs of time in the kitchen. Yes, I do LOVE to cook, but the thought of slaving over a hot stove for over an hour after a long day seems like terrible time management. That's why I'm a really big fan of fast, easy, healthy and yummy recipes like this one! I never really cook anything that takes longer than 30 minutes (unless it's in the oven or slow cooker and I don't have to do anything) simply because life is busy and we aren't all Julia Child. So, you'll notice that all of my recipes are quick, easy and full of the nutrients that your body is craving.
This Chinese beef with broccoli is perfect for when those takeout cravings kick in because you're exhausted after a long day or just want to indulge in something easy and good! This recipe takes very little time and prep and can be made the night or day before and then you can just heat it up for dinner the next night. Enjoy!
1 lb flank steak (I highly encourage everyone use grass-fed meats. It's better for your body and the environment)
1 cup coconut aminos (you can find this at Whole Foods or buy it HERE)
Juice from one orange
1 tsp fish sauce (available at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods)
2 TBSP raw honey
5 garlic cloves
1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 TBSP coconut flour
1 tsp red pepper flakes
4 crowns broccoli cut into florets
2 TBSP coconut oil
Salt and pepper
Mix coconut aminos, orange juice, fish sauce, honey, garlic, red pepper and ginger in a bowl.
Place sliced flank steak in marinade and let that sit
While meat marinates, heat up one TBSP of coconut oil in a pan and cut broccoli into florets
Cook broccoli in the pan for about 5 minutes or until soft. Then remove from pan and place to the side.
Add another TBSP of coconut oil to the pan and then pour beef mixture in and cook.
Once meat is cooked through, add broccoli back in and stir.
Serve over cauliflower rice (available pre-made at Trader Joe's) but this also tastes wonderful just as is!
