  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 (1 inch) piece ginger root
  • ½ small bunch of green onions (scallions)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1/2 lb strip-loin (New York strip) steak
  • 1 tsp almond flour
  • 1/8 crushed red pepper
  • 2 Tbsp gluten-free soy-sauce (Tamari) or Braggs liquid aminos
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

  2. Slice the steak into thin strips.
  3. Add oil to the skillet and swirl to coat the bottom.
  4. Add the steak strips and cook until browned, 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.


Stir-fry vegetables

  1. Once the steak has been transferred, add 1 Tbsp oil to the skillet.
  2. Add the asparagus, bell pepper, ginger, and garlic.
  3. Cook, stirring frequently until vegetables are crisp-tender and lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.


Mix and serve
