Spicy Steak and Broccoli Stir Fry

This recipe is great because it is really versatile.  You could add whatever veggies you want- snow peas, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions- as well as adjust the seasonings to your own personal taste.  If you are adding veggies remember to count those carbs!  You are only allowed 2 Cups of low impact vegetables each day during induction.

1/2 lb flank steak
1/2 C broccoli
1/2 C bean sprouts
1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp Sriracha hot sauce (optional)

  • You may know this as Rooster Sauce.  It's pretty common in Asian restaurants and it is REALLY spicy.  You can find it in the international aisle in your grocery store.  If you are a spice weeny you should start with less than 1 tsp and add more if you need it. 

  1. Add butter to pan and melt over medium high heat.  
  2. Cut broccoli into bite size pieces and add to pan.  
  3. Cut flank steak into small strips and add to pan with broccoli.  You should be stirring ingredients periodically with a spatula.  
  4. Add garlic powder, soy sauce, and Sriracha to pan and integrate all ingredients with a spatula to form an even consistency.  
  5. Add bean sprouts last.  They are delicate and will only need to cook for about a minute or so.  
  6. Serve hot.  Serve with additional Sriracha on the side.  

Start cooking your broccoli first.  The steak is thin so it will cook fast.  

This whole recipe takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cook and only uses one pan, so it's in my arsenal of recipes for when it's already 8:00 and I haven't started dinner yet.  You can keep flank steak on hand in the freezer.  It's so thin that it defrosts pretty quickly.  If you really want to speed things up you can even cut your flank steak before you freeze it.

Bean sprouts
This is the kind I like.  They are always fresh and crunchy.
