‘Beef’ and Broccoli Stir-Fry

2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 Tbsp. distilled white vinegar
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 lb. veggie beef strips (try Morningstar Farms Steak Strips)
1 small bunch broccoli
2 tsp. vegetable oil, divided
2 carrots, sliced diagonally 1/8-inch thick
1 bunch green onions
3/4 cup vegetable broth

• In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, cornstarch, vinegar, ginger, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Whisk until combined.
• Toss in the veggie beef and let stand for 10 to 20 minutes.
• Cut the broccoli florets from the stem and slice the stems into 1/4-inch-thick pieces.
• Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat. Add 1 tsp. of the oil. When almost smoking, add the “beef” mixture and stir-fry for 1 minute. Remove from the wok. Add the remaining oil and the vegetables, stir-frying for 1 minute. Add the broth and cook, scraping the bottom, until the vegetables are tender.
• Return the “beef” to the wok and heat through.

    This is an outstanding recipe. I added in 1 hot Chile, and used “beef” seitan strips from wholefoods. The best part is it takes < 30 minutes to make!

    I am also looking for good “steak” alternative, since it’s been revealed that all the morning star,gardein and yves products I loved are all processed with hexane. I have not found products as meat like yet. I would love suggestions!

  • delbertsan says:

    Gardein makes great meat substitutes and I am pretty sure they are all vegan. In my opinion, they make the best.

    Question about using Morning Star…I have not looked at the steak strips..but most of their products seem to contain egg whites and also use GMO soy…is there another brand you can recommend?
