Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Egg/Corn Free. An Easy Fresh and Healthy Meal with Bright Flavor.

  • Prep Time :
    20 min
  • Cook Time :
    10 min
  • Ready Time :
    30 min


3-4 servings


  • 6 cloves FRESH Garlic Minced
  • 2 Inches FRESH Ginger Minced
  • 2 Bell Peppers Sliced
  • 1-2 Heads of Broccoli
  • Large Handful Sugar Snap Peas
  • 2 TBS Sesame Oil (For cooking)
  • 2-3 Green Onions Chopped


  • 1 LB Sliced Organic Beef (I like using Cubed Steak)
  • 1 Tsp FIsh Sauce (optional)
  • 1 TBS Sesame Oil
  • 1 TBS Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tsp White Pepper (black pepper will also work)
  • 1 Tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Salt


  • 1 Tsp Coconut Aminos
  • 1 Tsp FIsh Sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1 Tsp Better than Bouillon Chicken Stock


This quick and easy meal has become a regular in our kitchen lineup. Perhaps more l  a regular- I have made it 6 times in the past two weeks. Its delicious. Fresh, Healthy, has wonderful bright flavor and it comes together quick. One of my goals this year was to seriously up my fruit and veggie intake..and to learn how to cook my veggies less. I’m really not good about eating them raw.

The past year I took it upon myself to cut out the majority of soy out of my diet. Recently I discovered that Soy was triggering post nasal drip for me.. So here I go pushing it out even further. Most Asian dishes of course call for Soy Sauce. In the past I have used Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s (A Product I still think wins over gluten free soy sauce ANY day) But with this soy free quest- I needed to find something Different- so I brought home a new product called Coconut Aminos from the company Coconut Secret (Love them! And their Coconut Nectar as well)  This Amino Sauce is nice.. its not as Salty or strong in flavor as Soy Sauce but it works. I often add just a little extra salt to the dish Im preparing. IF you eat soy.. use equal amounts of it and omit the Coconut Aminos. (and cut back on additional salt)

So here we  go. The Key to a really good Stir-Fry is NOT overcooking the Vegetables. You want them Crisp Tender!  Pre-chop everything before you start the cooking process and be ready to move quickly.

  1. Combine your cut Beef and all of its marinade ingredients in a bowl. Set aside for 20 minutes.
  2. Cut up all of your vegetables- as well as the Garlic and the Ginger.
  3. In a Wok or Large Skillet Cook the Beef and its Marinade over medium high heat until cooked through. Remove and set aside.
  4. If the pan is wet from the meat- wipe it down. and Pour in your 2 TBS of Sesame Oil. Turn the Stove back on to Medium High Heat. Add the Garlic and Ginger and cook for 1 minute until fragrant. Then in one minute Intervals add in the Broccoli, Pepper and Snap Peas. Cook this mixture no longer 3-4 minutes. Add back in the Beef and then pour in the “Stir Fry Sauce” Ingredients. Cook until the vegetables are just barely cooked and remove from heat. Stir in the Chopped Green Onion.  Add Additional Salt to Taste.

I absolutely love eating this meal with Bean Thread Noodles. You can serve this with any variation of Asian Rice Noodle or Try Brown Rice or Quinoa. This Recipe is wonderful made with Chicken or Pork as well! (I tagged the recipe as Rice Free As it can easily be avoided)

what does 627 and 631 mean above when you have ingredients measured below? I want to make this tonight but I’m not sure I have the right ingredients. Thanks! Andrea

My website crashed a few months ago and those odd numbers showed up :/
Let me look up the recipe in my notes.
Those if I remember correctly are not ingredients.

Hi Brittany. I want to make this tonite. I do not have ginger or aminos? I am on an elimination diet to identify trigger foods and have been eliminated wheat, corn, soy, dairy, sugar, peanuts and eggs. I do have coconut oil and I dont think I can use fish oil…add to that we are getting a major blizzard so I am not going out for anything. I have veggies, steak and was planning on using pad thai rice noodles. ANY suggestions for making a tasty sauce that my family will love? LOVE YOUR STUFF!

Hello :)
I am from England and newly diagnosed as wheat and dairy intolerant (aaah! No more cheese!) I’m also veggie so browsing through your recipes is inspiring me to not panic. But can you tell me what measurement a cup is? xx

Hi Brittany,
I just wanted to mention that the the maltodextrin in the better than bouillon product is derived from corn, so if someone is really sensitive this may not be completely corn free. Thanks for all the great recipes!

This was wonderful. My sauce was a bit thin so I added less than 1/4t of arrowroot. My husband ate his food so fast it was hard to believe that I fixed him a plate in the first place. Thanks again.
