Beef and broccoli…

I just wanted to remind y’all that tonight for the Cookbook Giveaway! It ends at midnight PCT!

Okay, on to the good stuff…Chinese food!

I grew up eating at Chinese food and Beef and Broccoli was always my favorite, so we wanted to try a paleo friendly version. This was a delicious and easy meal (for under $10) that the whole family really enjoyed.

  Here’s what you need:

  • 3/4 lb sirloin steak, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 orange, zest and juice
  • gluten free tamari soy sauce, 3/4 cup
  • sesame oil, 1/4 cup
  • fresh ginger, 1 & 1/2 tbsp
  • 1-2 tbsp dry white wine
  • red pepper flakes, scallions and sesame seeds (optional)
  • celtic sea salt (I added about 1/2 tsp since I used the low sodium tamari)

Tate actually said today “I love to help you cook mom”. I think what he meant was I like to help you make a mess and use potentially dangerous cooking utensils (like a grater).   But I like to have him involved because lord knows he’s still learning.   After camp today, he came home and said his friend had some “grass fed noodles” that he would like to try because they “make your muscles strong”.  At least he’s trying…

Here’s what you need to do:

1.  Grate your ginger (or just use a butter knife to scoop some out if it’s frozen)

2.  Grate your orange peel for the zest

3.  Juice your orange and put orange and ginger all in a small bowl and set aside.

I can blame this mess on Tate, but it typically our kitchen doesn’t look much better than this…

4.  Add tamari, seseame seeds, (scallions, red pepper flakes and sesame optional) and set aside.

5.  Now cut your sirloin into bite sizes pieces.

6.  Put the meat and half the marinade in a zip lock bag and seal tight.

7.  Steam the broccoli for just a few minutes.

8.  Cook the meat for about 2 minutes, add the broccoli and the rest of the marinade and let cook on low for a few minutes.  Then turn off and let the juices soak in for awhile before dinner time.
