  • Head broccoli cut into small florets
  • Organic peanut oil
  • 2 pieces fresh (1 in) peeled ginger
  • 1 scallion thinly sliced (optional)
  • 2 cloves of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 2 ¼ cups cooked red rice or quinoa


  • 1 Tbsp. arrowroot
  • 3 Tbsp. shoyu or gluten-free tamari
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. dry sherry or Chinese rice wine
  • 1 ½ tsp. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 ½ pounds grass-fed sirloin cut into cubes


  • 2-3 Tbsp. gluten-free tamari
  • 1 Tbsp. dry sherry
  • 3 Tbsp. water
  • 2 tsp. coconut sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. arrowroot



  • In a medium bowl, combine marinade ingredients together until arrowroot is dissolved. Place meat in marinade and stir to coat. Let meat marinate at room temperature for 30-60 minutes.
  • Place all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and combine until arrowroot is dissolved. Set aside.
  • Bring two inches of salted water to a boil in a wok and add broccoli. Cover and steam until crisp and tender, about 2 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  • Heat the wok over medium-high heat. Drain meat in a colander. Add peanut oil to the wok. Add ½ of meat to wok, allow to cook for 1 minute or until brown. Turn beef over and cook for another 30 seconds then set aside on a plate. Repeat steps with remaining meat adding more oil if needed. Set meat aside.
  • In the same wok, add the ginger, scallion and garlic and stir-fry until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the sauce and reserved meat back to the wok. Bring the sauce to a boil and cook until thickened, about 2 minutes. Mix in the broccoli and stir to coat with the sauce.
  • Distribute 1/3 cup rice or quinoa amongst 6 bowls, top evenly with beef and broccoli.
