Stir Fry Beef Salad

Makes dinner for two with leftovers for lunch.

Approximate cooking time: 15-20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 lbs beef tip steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil, lard, or tallow
  • 1 Tbsp coconut aminos (tastes like soy sauce)
  • 1/2 sweet yellow onion, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • large handful of pea pods or sugar snap peas
  • 2 medium heads lettuce of choice or the equivalent amount of mixed greens
  • balsamic vinegar
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Heat skillet over medium heat.  Add the coconut oil, lard, or tallow as soon as the pan is hot.
  2. Add sliced onions and sauté until they begin to soften and turn translucent. Stir often.
  3. Turn the heat up slightly and wait about a minute for the pan to heat up.
  4. Add the beef and the coconut aminos, and continue to stir often.
  5. When beef is close to done (however you prefer it) add the bell peppers and peas.
  6. Season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper if needed.
  7. Serve over chopped lettuce or mixed greens and drizzle with balsamic vinegar and olive oil to taste.

  1. Very delicious! I added some garlic and chili pepper with the onions just for a kick, turned out great

    I see wheat free tamari soy sauce in a lot of recipes but have had no luck finding it. Any help?

    This was awesome,used coconut oil instead of olive oil and used grass-fed beef!

    I found Tamari soy sauce next to my regular soy sauce in my grocery store. Or you may find it in your “ethnic” food aisle.

    I just started eating Paleo on Tuesday. Now to be honest I’m not a very good cook, but nonetheless, this is the first dinner I’ve made that had enough flavor and didn’t send me running for spices. Love it.

    Ditto on the very good, and very easy. Can’t wait to have it leftover tomorrow.

    I loved this meal! Even my non paleo eating housemates were going back for seconds! All that was left was three pea pods and a strip of red pepper:)

    loved this meal – one of the best so far…apparently my dog decided the same, because he knocked the pan off the stove and ate it while I was eating mine…

    I prepped this dish the night before, so I let the beef marinate in a little oil, ginger, salt and pepper overnight. I also added Garlic and Ginger during cooking… so yummy, and so easy! With all the chopping and cutting done the night before, this was literally a throw-together meal and a perfect ending to a hectic day. We’ll definitely have this again.

  10. Yum! This is my favorite meal so far… and it’s QUICK! Drizzling balsalmic over it made it that much better. Love!

  11. Isn’t soy not paleo? Tamari is made with soybeans, right?

  12. Ah, I apologize, I didn’t see that the recipe called for coconut aminos. I saw someone mention in the comments about tamari and thought that was the ingredient specified!

  13. Salad and sliced beef (usually referred to in our home as “kick-ass” beef salad…) is one of our favourite dishes. Found that it works incredibly well with a thai inspired chilli dressing. Try this as a variety to the balsamic:

    This is a great lunch or dinner. I have made it twice now and enjoyed it both times. Is there a reason it does not have nutritional information?

    • MissLindey – We’re working on finishing up all the recipes with their nutritional info. Some of them we just never got around to, but it’s on schedule to be done in the next couple of months.

  15. Little confused on the peas…every book I have read puts them on the naughty list

  16. My son is allergic to peas. Suggestion for substitution?

  17. Karen M

    This is really good. I added some hot chilli just cause it’s good.

  18. Lisa K

    This was delicious, I added a little ginger and additional vegies. The coconut aminos tastes just like tamari or soy sauce and because I could not find it locally I purchased coconut aminos on Amazon for $5.

  19. I thought peas where not Paleo?

    This recipe is the worst written recipe I have ever read. If anyone starting off cooking read this they would never cook again and have fast food for the rest of their life.
