1 lb. skirt steak, thinly sliced into ¼” strips
salt & pepper
3 tbsp. arrowroot powder
1 tsp. + 1 tbsp. olive oil, divided
1 lb. green beans, trimmed
3 cloves garlic, minced
3” piece of root ginger, peeled & grated
4 tbsp. coconut aminos
1 tbsp. rice wine vinegar
3 tbsp. coconut sugar (optional)
2 green onions, chopped
1 tbsp. sesame seeds
How to Prepare
Place the steak strips into a large mixing bowl and pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper, and toss with arrowroot until well coated, and set aside.
Add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a large skillet over a medium-high heat, add the green beans and sauté for 1 minute. Add 2 tablespoons of water and cover with a lid to steam for a further minute. Transfer the green beans to a plate and discard any excess water.
Return the skillet to a high heat and add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the steak strips and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until the beef is almost cooked through. Reduce to a medium heat and add the garlic, ginger, coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar, and coconut sugar; stirring quickly to coat the beef. Add the green beans back into the pan and top with green onions and sesame seeds. Serve immediately.
