INGREDIENTS
  1. 4-5 tbsp avocado oil
  2. 2 cups broccoli florets
  3. 1 tsp sea salt, divided
  4. 1/2 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  5. 1.5 lb flank steak
  6. 2 tbsp arrowroot starch
  7. 3 cloves garlic
  8. 1 thumb ginger, grated
  9. 1/3 cup coconut aminos
  10. 1/4 cup chicken broth (substitute water)
  11. 3 green onions, sliced into 1″ strips
  12. Cauliflower rice to serve (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Using a large deep skillet, heat 1-2 tbsp of avocado on medium heat. Add the broccoli and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 6-7 minutes or until fork tender. Remove the broccoli from the pan, set aside, and clean out the pan.
  • Prepare the flank steak by adding salt and pepper to both sides, and using a sharp knife to slice against the grain into about 1″ bite-sized slices.
  • Add the arrowroot starch to a bowl and add the steak slices, coating thoroughly.
  • Using the same pan, heat 2-3 tbsp of avocado oil. Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add half of the steak slices. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, and repeat until all of the steak is cooked. Set aside.
