Ingredients:

Let’s gather the stars of our culinary show:

For the Marinade:

1. 1/4 cup soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)

2. 2 tablespoons olive oil

3. 1 tablespoon minced garlic

4. 1 tablespoon minced ginger

5. 1 teaspoon erythritol (or preferred keto-friendly sweetener)

For the Main Dish:

1. 1.5 lbs beef sirloin, thinly sliced

2. 2 cups broccoli florets

3. 2 tablespoons sesame oil

4. 1/2 cup beef broth

5. 2 tablespoons coconut aminos

6. 1 tablespoon xanthan gum (optional for thickening)

Equipment/Tools:

No need for fancy gadgets; just a few kitchen essentials:

1. Wok or large skillet

2. Mixing bowls

3. Sharp knife

4. Cutting board

Instructions:

Step 1: A Soaking Symphony

In a bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, olive oil, minced garlic, minced ginger, and a touch of sweetness with erythritol. Imagine the dance of these ingredients, each note contributing to the symphony that will elevate our beef slices to greatness. Pour this marinade over the thinly sliced beef, ensuring each piece is enveloped in this flavor-infused bath. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes, or if time allows, allow it to bask in the flavors for a few hours.

Step 2: The Sizzle Begins

Heat sesame oil in your trusty wok over medium-high heat. As the oil shimmers with anticipation, add the marinated beef slices, creating a sizzling melody that signifies the beginning of our culinary journey. Stir-fry until the beef is browned and cooked to perfection, a visual symphony of caramelization and tenderness

Step 3: Green Harmony

Introduce the broccoli florets to the wok, tossing them into the mix like verdant confetti. Picture the vibrant green intertwining with the savory beef, creating a visual feast that mirrors the impending taste explosion. Cook until the broccoli is crisp-tender, maintaining its bright color and nutritional integrity.

Step 4: Saucy Crescendo

Pour in the beef broth and coconut aminos, transforming the wok into a simmering cauldron of flavors. Feel the aroma wafting through your kitchen as the sauce thickens to a glossy perfection. For an extra touch of velvety luxury, sprinkle in xanthan gum, whisking it in gradually to achieve the desired thickness.

Tips and Tricks:

1. Marination Magic: Don’t rush the marination process. Allow the beef to absorb the rich flavors, turning it into a delectable canvas for our culinary masterpiece.

2. Broccoli Brilliance: To maintain the crispiness of broccoli, blanch it briefly before stir-frying. This ensures it retains its vibrant color and doesn’t turn mushy.

3. Sauce Sensation: Experiment with the sauce’s intensity by adjusting the amount of coconut aminos. More for a bold flavor, less for a subtle touch.
