Mongolian Beef

Servings 4 people


  • 1 1/2 pounds beef flank steak cut diagonally into strips
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3 tablespoons coco-aminos
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon grated gingerroot
  • 1 small red onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic pressed
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Marinate flank steak overnight or for at least 4 hours (see recipe).
  • In a large bowl, toss together steak strips and coconut flour until each strip is lightly covered (add more flour if necessary).
  • In a small bowl, place remaining ingredients, except coconut oil; whisk together into a nice, thick marinade.
  • Place steak strips in a large zipper-topped plastic bag and pour marinade on top; seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate overnight or for at least 4 hours.
  • At time of cooking, melt the coconut oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add steak strips; cook and stir for 4 to 7 minutes.
  • Add remaining marinade and heat through; serve.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve over Cauli-Rice (process cauliflower in a blender or food processor until it resembles grains of rice; steam “rice” till tender; drain; salt and pepper to taste and fluff with a fork). Add stir-fried zucchini, yellow squash and snow peas on the side.
