Beef broccoli stir fry with ginger, garlic, and red peppers


Ginger Broccoli Beef Stir Fry

This delicious stir fry using fall and winter veggies can be prepped in the morning or the night before.  I went ahead and chopped all the veggies and placed in the fridge while I was grating the ginger for the marinade this morning, then dinner just took minutes to put together in the evening.  The ginger gives a nice sweet heat to this meal and the red peppers give it a beautiful burst of color. 

Marinade for the Beef

2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

5 Tbsp fish sauce (or 1 teaspoon sea salt + 1/4 cup stock)

1 Tbsp honey

1 Tbsp peeled, grated fresh ginger

1 teaspoon chili pepper flakes

1 teaspoon ground cumin


Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry

1 1/2 lb top sirloin steak

2 Tbsp coconut oil

1 Tbsp sesame oil (optional)

3-4 green onions, sliced 1/2-inch apart, including the greens

1 head broccoli, cut into small florets

2 cloves garlic, crushed

2-3 hot chiles, such as red serranos, seeded, sliced

1-inch nob of ginger, peeled, cut lengthwise into matchstick shapes

1/2 cup loosely packed cilantro, chopped

Chill beef in the freezer for 30 minutes before slicing, this will make it easier to slice.  Cut into thin strips, 1/2 inch by 2 inches approx.  Place in a bowl and toss with marinade ingredients. Allow to marinade all day.

Stir fry: In a skillet over medium-high heat heat oils until very hot.  As the oil heats, pour marinade from beef.  Saute beef in 3-4 small batches until browned on the outside but rare on the inside, approx 1 minute.  Transfer to a bowl and stir fry the rest of the ingredients, cooking until vegetables are cooked to desired doneness, just a few minutes.  Serve, pouring juices remaining in the bottom of the pan on top.
