Sesame Beef and Broccoli

Sesame Beef and Broccoli

I am a huge fan of oriental food but, of course, on the Paleo Diet, it is hard to fit it in.  The list of non-paleo ingredients is a mile long.  However, as I was perusing the web the other night, I came across this recipe for Beef and Broccoli and I have to admit one thing… this is my absolute favorite paleo recipe to date and is a definite keeper!


  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 2 tsp coconut aminos
  • ½ cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp dark sesame oil
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1-2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups carrots, julienned
  • 1 green onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds


  1. In a large skillet, heat the sesame oil and cook the garlic until tender 3-5 minutes.
  2. Add slices of steak and cook until browned.
  3. In a small bowl, mix lemon juice, coconut aminos, red pepper flakes, and 1 cup vegetable broth.
  4. Remove steak from pan.
  5. Using same pan place broccoli and carrots in the heated pan. If needed add a little bit more sesame oil.
  6. Pour the liquid ingredients into the pan to coat the broccoli and carrots.
  7. Cover and cook until tender.
  8. Return the steak to the pan and add the green onions.
  9. Stir steak in until it is well coated with the sauce.
  10. Top with sesame seeds.

While this recipe calls for flank steak, any kind of steak works great!  I planned to make this with some cauliflower rice but my grater met its demise so that will have to wait until next time!

Makes approximately 4-5 servings.
