I will always have a soft spot for something that requires a little more time and effort (like soup or slow stew soup, or fancy desserts), but most of the day we eat foods that are fairly easy and simple.
- 1/2 cup of low-gluten sodium-free tamari, coconut aminos, or soy sauce
- 1lb. brokolini (or broccoli), cut it into 2 "parts
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, plus enough
- 1/4 - 1/2 cup water, as desired
- 3 / 4lb. lean steak (like top sirloin, or the end of the waist) thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp arrowroot or corn flour *
- 3 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 1/2 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped
- olive oil or coconut oil, for cooking
- In a medium bowl, combine the thinly sliced steak with arrowroot (or corn flour) and a pinch of pepper. Stir to coat well.
- Heat oil drizzle in a large skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, add several pieces of steak (not touching each other) into the pan. Cook 60-90 seconds per side, then transfer to a clean plate or bowl. Repeat with the remaining steak, adding more oil to the pan as needed.
- When all the steaks are cooked, add the broccoli to the pan (again, if the pan is rather dry, add a little oil). Cook 4-5 minutes, or until it's crispy (cook longer if you like your broccoli softer).
- When broccoli is cooked, mix your sauce by combining coconut / tamari amino, garlic, ginger and pepper.
- When broccoli is cooked, transfer to a plate / bowl with steak. Pour the sauce into the pan and stir to scrape every brownish bit. Return the cooked broccoli and steak to the pan and stir to combine. The sauce should thicken naturally when heating up and bubbling for several minutes (3-5 minutes). If the sauce is too thick, add a little water (or more coconut / tamari amino).
