Ingredients

  • 1 lb grass-fed sirloin cubed to 1” pieces
  • sea salt & ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp tapioca or arrowroot starch*
  • Chosen Foods 100% Pure Avocado Oil for sauteeing

For the Teriyaki Sauce

  • ¼ cup rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 1-2 tsp chili sauce optional for more heat
  • 2" knob ginger grated
  • 1 garlic clove minced
  • 2 tbsp Chosen Foods Spicy Sesame Oil
  • Optional for garnish: sesame seeds chopped scallions

Instructions

  1. Add the cubed sirloin to a medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper until all the meat is lightly coated. Add the tapioca starch and mix well, until each piece of meat has a chalky appearance on all surfaces.
  2. Preheat a large skillet over medium heat. Lightly grease the pan with Avocado Oil and add the cubed sirloin, being careful not to crowd the pan. Cook the meat for no more than 5 minutes, aiming to brown 2 sides. Cooking further or trying to brown all sides will result in dry meat. Move the cooked cubes to a cooling rack lined with paper towel underneath.
  3. With the heat still on medium, add the rice wine vinegar, tamari sauce, molasses, chili sauce, ginger, and garlic to the same pan used to cook the meat. It will bubble so stir quickly with a whisk to scrape any bits off the bottom. Continue to stir the sauce until it reaches a steady simmer. Turn the heat to low and continue to cook until the sauce thickens (the starchy bits of meat left in the pan will help to thicken the sauce). Once thickened, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the Spicy Sesame Oil. Add the cooked meat and stir well to coat. Serve over cooked Quinoa and enjoy immediately.

Recipe Notes

Other gluten-free flours will work well for thickening your sauce but those with a higher starch content will yield a crisper outside to the meat. Rice flours, tapioca or arrowroot starch work best.
