Beef Flank Stirfry


  • 2 pounds flank steak, sliced thinly across the grain
  • 2 Tbs. Tamari or Soy Sauce
  • 4 Tbs. Sesame Oil
  • (Use 2 Tbs. oil and the ginger to marinate beef for 30 min.)
  • 1 Tsp. Fresh Ginger, Grated or Powder
  • (see above)
  • 1 Tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
  • 1 Cup Crimini or White Mushrooms
  • 1 Cup Broccoli
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, julienned
  • 1 Medium Yellow Onion, Sliced Thin
  • 1/2 Cup Julienned Carrots
  • Handful Snowpeas
  • 1 Cup Bean Sprouts
  • 1 Tsp. Sea Salt
  • Sprinkle of Sesame Seeds
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper


Marinate beef in 2 Tbs. Sesame Oil, 2 Tbs. Tamari (or soy) and ginger for 30 minutes or more.

Quickly flash cook beef for 1-2 minutes, set aside.

Heat remaining oil on medium high heat and saute all vegetables other than bean sprouts. Add the meat and sprouts and cook just long enough to heat sprouts. Plate and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

It is my experience that when the food is chopped smaller prior to cooking or even while eaten, there is a better sense of flavor.

I like to add 1-2 Tbs. Wasabi Mustard to this easy low carb beef recipe dish. Do be warned, we're a spicy, garlic loving family!

Keep in mind that snowpeas and carrots can cause cravings for the Insulin Resistant person so if this is you, eliminate these. You may also substitute Chicken for the beef in this recipe.
