You will find this Mongolian beef so easy and flavorful it is sure to be a regular in your meal planning future.
1 lb flank or skirt steak, cut against the grain, bite-sized pieces
1/3 cup Arrowroot powder
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup raw honey or high-quality maple syrup
1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup coconut amino’s
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ginger, minced
2 green onions, finely diced
1 teaspoon Sesame seeds
In a medium bowl add Arrowroot powder and beef, coat the beef well but shake off excess – set aside.
Heat a wok or skillet using medium heat, add 1 tablespoon oil then put in the minced garlic and ginger – stir and cook about a minute or until very fragrant, don’t let it burn.
Add coconut amino, water & maple syrup (or raw honey) to the wok – mix and let boil about 2 minutes, remove to a bowl.
Put wok back on the heat with 1/4 cup of oil, when it gets hot add the beef and cook, stirring constantly until browned on all sides but not quite cooked all the way through – maybe 2 minutes
Remove excess oil then put sauce back in with the beef and let simmer until thick a couple minutes
Serve on rice – if you are eating paleo here are some rice substitutes – garnished with finely sliced green onions and sesame seeds.
