  • 1 lb . sirloin steak , slice into thin strips against the grain
  • Toasted white sesame seeds
  • Green beans , carrot slices, sugar snap peas, broccoli florets, as many as you like | Water blanched

Beef seasonings:

  • 2 tbsp + 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
  • ½ tsp coarse sea salt
  • Black pepper to taste
  • ¼ tsp garlic granules
  • ¼ tsp onion granules



  • Thin slice sirloin steak to thin strips, against the grain. Toss to coat with 2 tbsp arrowroot flour, sea salt, black pepper, garlic and onion granules. Cover and store in the fridge while moving on to prepare sauce.
  • In a medium sauce pot, combine ingredients listed under “sauce”. Reduce the sauce over medium-low to low heat to about cup. Stir frequently until the sauce is in glossy texture (about 4-5 mins.). Set aside.
  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp ghee over medium-high heat, when hot, lower the heat to medium. Coat/toss beef strips with 2 more tbsp of arrowroot. Coat well and evenly. Test with one single strip first to see if it starts bubbling/sizzling right away. Pan-fry them in separate batches. Try not to overcrowd the skillet. *
  • When the beef strips are in golden brown crispy, add sauce. Gently toss to combine. Serve immediately with blanched vegetables and garnish with sesame seeds.



*The texture of the beef strips is important in this recipe. To achieve crispy texture without deep-frying, use a large skillet and preheat the skillet well. Pan-fry the strips in separate batches. Add more oil if necessary. The beef strips should have slight crisp up texture. Some strips might stick with each other while others won’t. I wouldn’t overly worry.
