Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry
Beef and Broccoli Stir-Fry is quick and simple to make. You can have this meal on the table in less than 30 minutes and that includes the marinade time! Stir-fry is one of my favorite meals to make for the family because it never gets complaints from the children and fills everyone up. Normally with stir-fry, the steak would be dunked into cornstarch and flour before it gets sautéed but we are doing things a little different today to keep it gluten-free and keto-friendly. Forget the cornstarch step! We will be using almond flour in later steps to thicken up our sauce.
Begin by cutting your sirloin into 1/4 inch thick slices and prepare the marinade. Thin slices that follow the grain of the meat are ideal for a stir-fry.
Your marinade consists of low-sodium soy sauce, minced garlic and lot’s of grated ginger. Whisk the ingredients together and add in the sliced steak. Make sure to mix everything together well so the marinade covers all the steak and let it sit for about 15 minutes to soak in those flavors.
While the steak is marinating, chop your broccoli. I buy two bunches and chop about six cups worth- that seems like a lot but it is going to be just the right amount. Broccoli is one of the best foods you can put in your body supplying you with vitamin K, vitamin C, potassium, fiber folate and so much more.
Also, begin your side dish. Rice is gluten-free and filling so that is always a great option for stir-fry. If you are really watching those carbs on the keto diet, make some cauliflower rice.
Prepare your sauce. Combine almond flour, a bit of soy sauce and beef broth. Stir and set to the side. Almond flour is a good option for this stir-fry because it is gluten-free, easily accessible and high in protein. Plus, the almond flour is going to help thicken up our dish.
Get your pan warmed up on a high heat. Drop in a tablespoon of Armour Premium All-Natural Lard and drop in each slice of steak. Careful to watch out for any splatter in this step because it is HOT. Let the steak cook for 1 minute, 30 seconds each side and then put on a plate for a moment while the broccoli cooks.
Don’t worry about wiping the pan clean before placing back on the heat. Add in another .5 tablespoon Armour Premium All-Natural Lard. Drop your broccoli in and flip often. Add in some beef broth and turn the heat down slightly. Let the broccoli cook 3-4 minutes. I don’t recommend cooking your broccoli more than 5 minutes because it will reduce the nutrients it provides.
Once the broccoli has cooked 3-4 minutes, add the steak back in followed by your almond flour and beef broth mixture. Give a quick stir and serve immediately.
