Total Time 2 hours 35 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 2 pounds beef kidney chopped or 2 pounds chopped beef stew meat
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 large cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 3 tablespoons coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 4 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 2 medium apples cored and diced
  • 2 large stalks celery chopped
  • 2 cups broccoli florets


  • To a large ziplock bag, add the beef. In a small bowl mix the next 8 ingredients (ginger through broth) and mix well. Pour sauce into bag and seal bag, squeezing out excess air. Turn bag over to coat roast evenly. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
