Orange Beef Stir-Fry

Servings 4 people


  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 5 cloves garlic pressed, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon steak rub
  • 3 tablespoons ghee or use coconut oil
  • 3 shallots chopped
  • 6 cups kale chopped
  • 12 cherry tomatoes halved
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate steak overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe).
  • Place steak in a large zipper-topped plastic bag. In a medium bowl, whisk together half of the garlic, the olive oil, vinegar, salt and steak rub. Pour mixture over the steak.
  • Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours, turning bag occasionally. At time of cooking, preheat grill to MEDIUM-HIGH.
  • Remove steak from marinade and grill for 4 to 6 minutes per side or until cooked to desired level of doneness. Remove steak from grill and allow it to rest for 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, melt the ghee (or coconut oil) in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add remaining garlic and the shallots. Wait a couple of minutes then add the kale.
  • Stir, then cover, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 5 minutes. Add cherry tomatoes, salt and pepper. Cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Cut steak diagonally into thin strips and serve over the kale salad. Enjoy!!
