Mongolian Beef

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • ½ medium yellow onion diced
  • ½ cup coconut aminos
  • ¼ cup raw honey
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • ½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • pinch of Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 1 pound flank steak, thinly sliced against the grain
  • 1 green onion sliced, for garnish


  • First, make the cauliflower rice: Cut the cauliflower into small florets and place in the bowl of your food processor. Pulse a few quick times (about 10 to 15) until it resembles the texture of rice
  • Add the coconut oil to a large skillet set over medium heat and cook the onion, garlic, sesame seeds, salt and pepper until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
  • Add riced cauliflower, rice vinegar and sesame oil and continue cooking for an additional 5-8 minutes, until cauliflower is cooked but remains a tad crunchy.
  • Kill the heat and set aside.
  • While the rice cooks, make the Mongolian beef: Heat the coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, add the coconut aminos, honey, garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes and a pinch of salt and pepper to a glass measuring cup and mix with a flat whisk until well combined.
  • Pour that mixture in the pan with the onions and let it come to a boil. Add the arrowroot powder to the pan while continuously whisking until the mixture is thickened, about 2 minutes.
  • Place the steak slices in the pan with the sauce, distributing them throughout the pan so as not to overcrowd them. Simmer the meat in the sauce for 4-5 minutes, or until no red meat is apparent.
  • Once the meat has cooked through, place over cauliflower rice and top with chopped green onion.
