Orange You Glad It’s Steak Stir Fry

Sauce & Steak Ingredients:

  • 1 pound sirloin steak from cows that got to frolic and eat good food

  • ¼ cup arrowroot powder or non-GMO corn starch

  • 2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 clove garlic, crushed

  • 2 tsp ginger, grated

  • Zest of 1 orange

  • 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice (1 ½ -2 oranges)

  • ½ cup tamari or soy sauce

  • 1-2 tsp chili flakes (optional depending on your partiality to spice)

  • 3 Tbsp honey or maple syrup

  • 3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 3 Tbsp sesame oil

  • ⅓ cup water

 

Stir Fry Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups rice, uncooked

  • Coconut oil and/or avocado oil

  • 1 tsp sea salt

  • 1 small red onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced

  • 2 tsp ginger, grated

  • ⅔ carrots, chopped into rounds

  • ¾ cup green beans chopped

  • ¾ cup broccoli, cut into small pieces

  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced thinly

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds

  • 4 sprigs green onion, chopped (garnish)

 

Directions:

  1. The Sauce: Slice the steak into thick strips. Put the arrowroot and ground pepper into a bowl with the steak. Toss together and set aside. Blend the rest of the marinade ingredients together and set them aside as well. 

  2. The Rice: Put the rice in a pot along with 3 cups of water, a hunk coconut oil (2-3 Tbsp), and the salt. Bring to a boil and then turn to low heat and cover until the water is absorbed (about 15-17 minutes).

  3. The Fry: Heat a wok or large frying pan to medium-high heat. Add a generous hunk of coconut oil and toss in the onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook until slightly softened (3ish minutes). Then throw in the carrots, green beans, and broccoli. Cook them until slightly tender, adding a splash of water if the veggies start to stick. Throw in the bell pepper and sesame seeds and turn it down to low heat.

  4. The Meat: Heat a frying pan to medium-high. Throw in some oil (about 1/4 cup) and let it heat up. Then shake the excess starch off the steak strips and add them to the pan and cook for about 2 minutes, flip and cook for another minute (or internal temp of 145℉). Add the marinade and leftover starch powder to the meat and saute for another couple of minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Combine the meat mixture and veggies into the wok.

  5. The Enjoying: Grab a bowl, put some rice in it, and top with some stir fry. Garnish with green onions and enjoy.
