Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry

I LOVE Thai food. It's one of my all time favourites, but I usually refrain from eating it unless I can do a healthier, but equally tasty version. This dish delivers! If you too are looking for a healthy flair to a classic Thai food dish, this is sure to please!

HERE'S WHAT YOU NEED:

  • ½ cup (115g) rice, raw

  • ½ broccoli head

  • 7 oz. (200g) beef tenderloin

  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil

  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds, to garnish

For the sauce:

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 tbsp. ginger, grated

  • 2 tsp. coconut sugar

  • 5 tbsp. soy sauce

  • 2/3 cup (150ml) of water

  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil

  • 2 tsp. potato starch

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

Cook the rice according to instructions on the packaging. Wash the broccoli and separate it into small florets.

Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside until required.

Heat ½ of the coconut oil in a wok or deep pan over medium heat. Stir-fry the broccoli with some salt, adding a few tablespoons of water now and then and cook in this way for about 7 minutes. Remove broccoli from the pan and set aside.

Cut the beef into thin strips or chucks. Heat the remaining oil over high heat and stir-fry the meat for about 3-4 mins.

Pour in the sauce and bring to a boil. Simmer for another 2-3 minutes, then add in the broccoli. Serve with the cooked rice, and garnished with sesame seeds.


ENJOY! xo
