Prep: 5 min
Cook: 15 min
Total: 20 min

Ingredients for 4 servings

  • Sauce
    • 3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce (OR low sodium tamari, liquid aminos)
    • 2 tablespoons water
    • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger
    • 3 tablespoons sriracha
    • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
    • 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes (optional)
    • 4 tablespoons coconut sugar (OR brown sugar OR 1/2 teaspoon stevia in the raw)
    • juice from 1/2 orange (or more if desired)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 12oz sugar snap peas
  • olive oil spray
  • 2 radicchio, chopped
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 1 1/2 lb flank steak, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice (OR steamed cauliflower rice)
  • Garnish
    • orange wedge
    • sesame seeds
    • fresh green onion, chopped


Step 1

Mix together the ingredients for the sauce EXCEPT for the arrowroot.  Season to taste with sriracha, soy and orange juice. Set aside along with arrowroot.

Step 2

Set a large nonstick skillet on high heat.  Once the pan is hot, add sugar snap peas.  Continuously stir the peas so they don’t burn, but you will char the outside, about 3 minutes.  Empty the peas from the skillet, then place the skillet back on the heat. Lightly spray with olive oil then add the chopped radicchio.  While it cooks, squeeze in a little lemon juice.  Continue to stir util the radicchio wilts, then remove from the skillet.

Step 3

Place the skillet back on the heat and add the chopped beef.  Sear the outside of the beef until you reach your desired readiness, about 4 to 8 minutes.  Once you’ve reached your desired readiness of beef, reduce the heat of the skillet, and make a hole in the skillet.

Step 4

Add the arrowroot to the sauce, mix well, then pour it into the skillet.  As soon as the sauce begins to bubble and thicken, remove the skillet from the heat and immediately and continuously fold the beef in the sauce. Remove the beef from the skillet and then garnish with sesame seeds and green onion.

Step 5

Assemble the meals – evenly divide the meat among 4 containers (or your number of servings), then add brown rice (or cauliflower rice), radicchio and sugar snap peas.
