Easy Spicy Beef Stir Fry

Easy Spicy Beef Stir Fry

100% Grass Fed Beef  can be a part of a healthy diet.  Full of Omega 3 fatty acids and natural saturated fats, Grass Fed Beef contains a variety of natural fats we need to stay healthy.  Fat helps fill us up and makes our food taste great.  All cells in our body contain an essential fat-rich outer phospholipid layer.  I buy my Grass Fed Beef from Holy Cow Beef.  They are a Christian ranch family in West Texas that deliver to the Dallas Ft Worth area once a month.

I adapted this easy spicy beef stir fry recipe from the cookbook, “The Frugal Gourmet,” by Jeff Smith.  It is delicious!  Make it next time you want stir fry.


1   about 1-pound beef flank steak

3   tablespoons Tamari Sauce

2   tablespoons dry sherry

1/2 teaspoon fresh-grated ginger

3  carrots

5  stalks celery

4  tablespoons Spectrum Organic All-Vegetable Shortening (palm fruit oil)

1+ clove garlic, mashed

unrefined sea salt to taste

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/4 cup beef broth

1/2 tablespoon arrowroot mixed with 2 tablespoons water

1 teaspoonful unrefined sesame seed oil (optional)


Cut the flank steak, across the grain, into thin slices.  Marinate in the tamari sauce, sherry, and grated ginger for 30 minutes or longer. Cut the carrots and celery into thin slices. Set aside.

Fry or chow the drained beef in the palm oil in a very hot pan or wok.  Drain, and remove from the pan or wok.  Saute’ the carrots, celery, and garlic in a little palm oil. Add the salt, red pepper flakes and the cooked beef shreds.  Add the beef broth and thickened corn starch.  Turn off heat and stir in sesame seed oil if desired.

Serves 4-6
