- 1 lb. lean ground beef
- 5 ounces mushrooms, sliced (about 3 cups)
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1 red pepper, chopped
- 5 ounces snap peas (about 2 cups)
Ground Beef Stir Fry Sauce
- 1 cup beef broth
- 2 tablespoons tapioca starch or cornstarch
- ¼ cup soy sauce (can use coco aminos)
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons minced ginger
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- Add the beef to a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the meat, stirring it to break up the pieces occasionally, until it is mostly brown, about 5 minutes.
- While the beef cooks, chop the veggies and make the sauce. Add the tapioca or cornstarch to a measuring cup or bowl. Add a splash of the beef broth and mix. Add the rest of the broth and remaining sauce ingredients and mix again.
- When the beef is mostly cooked, add the mushroom and cook them for 5 minutes. If there is more than 1 tablespoon of the oil in the pan remove it by tilting the pan to the side and using a spoon to scoop it out. If there is less, add a splash of oil.
- Add the remaining veggies to the pan and cook for 5-6 minutes, or until they are crisp-tender.
- Stir the sauce to mix up the starch then pour it into the pan. Once the sauce has thickened (1-2 minutes) serve the stir fry over rice or cauliflower rice.
Feel free to use your favorite veggies instead of the ones listed in the ingredients. You’ll want to use about 8 cups of chopped vegetables.
