  • 2 pieces finely chopped ginger
  • Ghee or animal lard of your choice

Beef marinade:

  • 2 Tbsp coconut aminos
  • ½ tsp Celtic Sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp sesame seed oil
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp arrowroot
  • ¼ tsp baking soda

Directions:

  1. Cut beef into ¼ inch thin slices. Mix all the marinade ingredients together and put the slices of beef into the mixture. Let this sit for about 20 minutes.
  2. Steam broccoli until tender in preparation for stir frying while your beef marinates.
