1 pound ground beef

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 red bell pepper (chopped)

1 large carrot (cut into matchsticks)

1/2 pound asparagus (ends trimmed, chopped)

8 ounces mushrooms (sliced or quartered)

1/2 a large yellow onion (chopped)


3 tablespoons coconut aminos (substitute tamari/soy sauce)

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger

1 teaspoon sriracha

1 teaspoon rice vinegar

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup

2 tablespoons water

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder (substitute tapioca starch or cornstarch)


sesame seeds

chopped scallions


Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the ground beef and cook until browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

Add the olive oil to the pan and let it get hot. Once hot, add the prepared vegetables and sauté for about 5 minutes until starting to soften but still slightly crisp.

While the vegetables cook, whisk together all the ingredients for the stir fry sauce in a small bowl and set aside.

Add the beef back to the skillet and toss to combine with the vegetables.

Pour in the stir fry sauce, stir immediately to coat all the ingredients and turn off the heat. The sauce should thicken quickly.

Garnish with sesame seeds and scallions and serve with cooked white rice.
