Beef & Broccoli Paleo Goodness

March 29, 2013

I love Chinese food. I specifically love Americanized Chinese food in all its greasy and deep fried goodness. The thick sauces are so luxurious and bad for me. *Sigh* How I do love them so. Though I guess any healthy food made unhealthy tastes pretty good, right?

I’ve got a real winning recipe for you today, Beef & Broccoli, minus the unhealthy. This is pure paleo and low carb and gluten free and so good! I made this last night and have to admit, I ate two helpings and didn’t share.


  • Beef, around 1 pound – I used flat iron steaks but get whatever is on sale! Cubed in 1” pieces
  • Broccoli – two heads
  • Green onions, 1 bunch
  • Garlic, three cloves minced
  • Ginger, 1 inch grated
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons coconut aminos (replaces soy sauce)
  • White pepper to taste

Heat your fat in your wok. Careful, woks distribute heat very well and very fast. If the fat starts to smoke toss it and start over!

Fast “fry” (sauté) your beef. When most of the sides of your beef are seared add your blanched broccoli.

You can cut off the florets and microwave in a bowl with about an inch of water in the bottom for 1 minute to par-cook them instead of blanching if you wish. Blanching is dunking them in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.

Add your sliced green onions and garlic, grate ginger over the wok. Keep stirring! Cook for 2-3 minutes.

Pour over the aminos and season with white pepper. Keep cooking until the broccoli is as tender as you wish and the meat is cooked through.

Now consume! This is a really easy and fast recipe. I love to make it any time thin steaks go on sale. It is so flavorful you don’t even miss the rice. To get fancy you can rice cauliflower and spoon the beef and broccoli over that.

Rice cauliflower? Yeah. “Ricing” is like mincing, but with the aid of power tools. Take a head of cauliflower and half it. Cut one half into chunks that fit into your food processor. Process until the cauliflower is the consistency of rice. Don’t overdo it or you’ll have paste!   Now boil the riced cauliflower like you would real rice… remember to salt the water. After 5-7 minutes at a simmer, drain and enjoy like rice!
