Ingredients

  • 1 Tbls olive oil, divided

  • 1 1/2 lbs flank steak, very thinly sliced across the grain

  • 3 gloves garlic, minced

  • 1 shallot, chopped

  • 4 green onions, thinly sliced

  • 4 cups broccoli florets, (about 2 small crowns)

  • 2 Tbls arrowroot starch or cornstarch

  • 3/4 c water

  • 1/3 c low-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 Tbls coconut sugar or light brown sugar

  • 1 tsp fresh ginger, minced

  • 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Preparation

Step 1

Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the beef and cook until well-browned, about 6-8 minutes. Once well-browned, remove from pan and set aside.


Step 2

In the same pan, add garlic, shallot and green onions to the beef drippings. Cook one minute, stirring frequently. Add broccoli and cover for 5 minutes.


Step 3 In a small mixing bowl, combine water and arrowroot starch and mix until no longer lumpy. Combine soy sauce, coconut sugar, ginger and red pepper flakes in a medium bowl. Add arrowroot starch mixture and stir to combine. Set aside.


Step 4 Remove cover from pan and add sauce. Cook until sauce starts to thicken, about 3-5 minutes. Add beef and stir to combine, cooking an additional 2-3 minutes. Serve over brown rice, if desired.
