Enjoy this tender beef stir fry that simmers in a delectable savoury sauce and makes your mouth water with every bite! This version of Mongolian beef is just as flavourful as the traditional dish, without the sugar and additives! Give the beef enough time to marinate and you’ll be salivating over it. Ginger, scallions, garlic and peppers serve as the aromatics that truly bring this dish together!

  • 1.5 lb beef (flank steak, top sirloin) thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp avocado oil
  • Salt to taste
  • 1/2 cup beef broth

Beef Marinade

  • 1/4 cup coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 1 tsp arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (optional)


  • Fresh Ginger – approximately size of index and middle finger – thinly sliced into matchstick size
  • 2 hot finger peppers – deseeded and finely sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic – finely minced
  • 4 scallions – finely sliced, length of 2 matchsticks


Step 1: Place sliced beef into a medium size mixing bowl. Combine all ingredients in steak marinade and toss until fully combined. Cover and refrigerate while prepping the rest of the dish

Step 2: Prepare aromatics – slice peppers, ginger, scallions and mince the garlic

Step 3: Heat a large skillet and add 2 tbsp avocado oil. Once fully heated, spread the marinated beef evenly on the skillet and allow to sear until crispy for about 2 minutes. Flip beef so other side is seared as well then place cooked beef and leftover marinade aside

Step 4: In the same skillet turn down heat to medium-low and add 1 tbsp avocado oil. Add in aromatics and allow to cook until fragrant – about 1 minute

Step 5: Add beef broth and scrape off all pan drippings and allow all flavours to come together! Simmer for another 60s

Step 6: Throw beef back in the skillet and toss with aromatics until fully combined. Option to add in extra veggies if you so wish!

Step 7: Serve on top of rice, sweet potatoes, cauliflower rice – whatever you choose! Serve and enjoy immediately!
