Stir-frys are fantastic ways to cook delicious fresh meals quickly and with ease. The other thing I love about stir-frys is that you can get really creative and use practically any veggies you might have that need using. This following recipe is quite simple and is rich in protein, iron and vitamin C. But if you have other veggies that need using, it would also taste great with snow peas, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms - or anything else you might want to add!
- 1 lean beef steak (approx. 450gm), cut into thin strips
- 1 yellow capsicum, thinly sliced (any colour is fine)
- 1 large broccoli, stalk removed and chopped into small florets
- 1 small onion, sliced into chunks
- 1/2 red chilli, deseeded and thinly sliced into strips (you can opt for a mild or hot chilli)
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 1 tsp. Minced ginger (powdered is also fine)
- 2 Tbsp. Coconut oil
- 1/2 Tbsp tamari sauce
- 1/2 cup of water
- Rock salt and ground pepper to taste
- Combine the water, ginger, garlic and tamari sauce in a small jug or bowl and set aside.
- Heat half of the coconut oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat and then stir-fry the beef until cooked through. This should take about 6 minutes. Then remove the beef and set aside in a bowl for later.
- Heat the remaining coconut oil in the same pan and add the onion, chilli, broccoli and capsicum, cooking until the broccoli turns bright green and softens slightly. This should take about 5 minutes.
- Return the beef to the pan and stir in the mixed water.
- Cook for a further 2-3 minutes, then remove from heat.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste and then enjoy!
