Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons Bragg's Aminos
  • 1-2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 dropper full of Clear Stevia (liquid)
  • 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 cup (approximately) of approved beef stock
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon Stacey Hawkins Toasted sesame ginger blend (this is a must ingredient if you like Asian flavors)
  • chives for taste
  • 3.5 ounces (grass-fed) beef round steak, cut into thin strips
  • 3.5 ounces broccoli
1 Serving of protein and 1 serving of vegetables    
Preparation
One Pan method:
  1. In a small bowl, combine the Bragg's Aminos, lemon juice, clear stevia, and xanthan gum. Set aside.
  2. Give your pan a quick spray of Smart balance, heat beef stock in a wok or skillet over medium-high heat. Stir-fry ginger and garlic for 30 seconds. Add the steak and stir-fry for 2 minutes or until evenly browned. Add the broccoli and stir-fry for an additional 3 minutes. Add the Bragg's Aminos mixture, bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower heat and simmer until the sauce is thick and smooth. Top with Toasted sesame ginger spice and Serve immediately.
From the video:
  1. Over medium-high heat saute half of the garlic and ginger in Smart balance for 1 minute, keep adding a little beef broth as needed to keep from burning.
  2. Toss in broccoli, lemon juice, and a little more broth.  Saute until broccoli is bright green, about 3-4 minutes, adding broth as necessary.  Remove from pan and put aside, keeping warm
  3. Over medium-high heat saute the rest of the garlic and ginger in Smart balance for 1 minute, add a little beef broth as needed to keep from burning.
  4. Add in the beef, Bragg's, and more beef broth, sauteing to your desire temperature (if you are making more than one serving, consider cooking the meat a little less, so you are not overcooking it when reheating). 3-4 minutes is about medium to medium-well depending on how thin your steak is sliced.
  5. When beef is almost done, add about a 1/2 cup more broth, stevia, xanthan gum, and Toasted sesame ginger spice.  Let simmer for a few minutes until sauce thickens, toss in broccoli mixture for about 30 seconds, plate and top with chives and more Toasted sesame ginger spice if desired.
Optional Ideas
You can make this a 4 serving recipe so you have meals ahead. The only drawback to that is heating it up because  I do not like microwaving food, especially beef.  But this did heat up well in an aluminum foil pocket and placed into a double boiler.  It only needs to be in there a few minutes after you get the water boiling. ~Nan
