Beef and Broccoli Delicious
For my version I wanted to create just the right balance of flavor. Plenty of garlic, obviously.
I also didn’t want to overwhelm all the other ingredients with soy sauce. My solution for this was to not use soy sauce at all. Gasp. It’s going to be okay, folks. Instead I opted for Coconut Aminos. Ever heard of this? If not, prepare to be amazed. It’s a sauce made from the sap of the coconut tree. It does not taste like coconut. The flavor is very much like a soy sauce but a bit milder. And it’s not made with sugar! If you’re skeptical, I hear ya. But you’re going to want to try this out and soon I bet you’ll be using it as a marinade for everything under the sun. The brand I use is Coconut Secret and I’ve been able to find it in basically every natural food store plus the occasional regular grocery store.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 people
• 2 lb flank steak cut into small 1/4 inch thick pieces
• 1/2 cup Coconut Aminos Original or Teriyaki
• 2 tablespoons garlic minced
• 1 tablespoon ground ginger or 1/2 tbsp fresh ginger, minced
• 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 teaspoon pepper
• 16 oz fresh broccoli florets Not frozen. Mine come in a bag from the produce section of the grocery store.
• additional salt and pepper to taste
• additional Coconut Aminos for drizzling
1. Add your sliced flank steak to a gallon Ziploc bag with 1/2 cup of Coconut Aminos. Make sure you let the air out of the bag and have it completely closed. Now squish the contents of the bag so that no steak is without Coconut Aminos. Because we don’t use too much you’ll see that the steak quickly absorbs it. Let this marinade for a minimum of 15 minutes. (The longer the better.)
2. Toss the minced garlic, flank steak, ginger, garlic powder, salt, and pepper into your pan. Do not squeeze the remaining marinade into the pan. You won’t need it and too much liquid can make it difficult to get a nice brown on your steak.
3. Turn the heat up somewhere between high and medium high. Stir frequently so that all sides of your steak brown. Your pan will quickly fill up with the Coconut Aminos liquid that was absorbed into your meat. Allow your meat to brown on both sides. This can take 5 – 6 minutes depending on how full your pan is and the thickness of your steak.
