Yes, it’s not really teriyaki. I acknowledge that. There’s no soy, no teriyaki sauce – nope. But it does hit those bells and whistles for us. Hopefully for you as well.
Do you, boo.
I feel like we’re seeing so much conflicting information and debate over what is and is not “AIP” right now (this could be due to other protocols touted to help autoimmune disease, general misinformation/assumptions, and separating the outlined elimination stage from one’s personal protocol) – it is confusing/tiresome/worrisome. So, my recipe posts will likely include the above phrase from here on. 🙂 All the recipes I have marked as AIP paleo are in line with the paleo autoimmune protocol outlined by Sarah Ballantyne in The Paleo Approach. If you have your own healing protocol that is working for you, fantastic! Use my ingredients as a template, if you’d like.
Pick your favorite vegetables that work for your healing protocol and throw them in. I’ve made this many times now with vegetable variations. Carrots, broccoli, leeks, onions, mushrooms, cauliflower, bok choy, cabbage… whatever’s clever! Once everything is done, I plate myself up and add some sliced bell peppers and let them cook a few minutes for the rest of the family. They love it!
- 2 TB fat of choice (tallow, rendered bacon fat, or coconut oil)
- 1 lb beef stew or tenderloin kabob meat, patted dry
- 3 cloves garlic, pressed or grated
- 2 slices homepickled ginger (can sub ½-inch length fresh), grated or minced
- ⅓ cup coconut aminos
- ½ tsp fish sauce
- 3 organic carrots, julienne peeled
- 2 organic broccoli stems, julienne peeled
- 1 leek, cut in half lengthwise, rinsed well, patted dry, and sliced
- 5 cremini mushrooms, gently wiped with damp towel and sliced
- In a large cast iron skillet, bring fat of choice to medium-high heat.
- Working in (two) batches, sear the beef on all sides - about 6 minutes. Remove seared beef to a plate.
- Add garlic and ginger to skillet, cook until fragrant (about two minutes). Pour in coconut aminos and fish sauce, stirring well.
- Add julienned vegetables and sliced leeks and mushrooms, stirring often to soak up the sauce and cook through. After 8 minutes, fold seared beef back in and let flavors meld a few minutes.
- Serve with cauliflower rice.
