Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry – Soy Free

I have always loved stir fries.  After I found out I was dairy intolerant, we began to eat more stir fries, until I found out a few months later that I was also soy intolerant.  I thought my enjoyment of stir fries was over until my husband got to work making a soy-free stir fry.  Thank goodness he likes to experiment in the kitchen!  Here is a great recipe:

Beef and Broccoli Stir Fry – Soy Free

3 heads broccoli
2 t-bone steaks, cut into bite size pieces
2 cloves garlic
1/2 tbsp. ginger
3/4 cup mirin
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. salt
dash of red pepper
3 tbsp. vegetable oil

-Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper and marinate in 1/3 cup of the mirin overnight in the refrigerator.

-In a small bowl, mix garlic, ginger, another 1/3 cup of mirin, onion powder, 1 tsp. salt, 2 tbsp. oil.

-Cut the broccoli in bite size pieces and stir fry in 1 tbsp. oil for 4 minutes until bright green and crisp.  Add a small amount of water to prevent burning, if necessary.  Remove from pan and set aside.

-Add beef to the pan and cook until browned on all sides.  Before it is completely brown, add the remaining mirin to the pan for extra moisture.

-Remove beef and wipe out the pan with a paper towel to remove extra fat.

-Add broccoli and beef back to the pan, cover with the sauce and stir until warmed through.

  1. Thanks for sharing! Looks yummy! My family is Gluten Free, Soy Free and Dairy Free. Have you ever tried Raw Coconut Aminos? It’s a lot like Braggs only made with coconut “sap” no soy. Great Soy Sauce alternative. Super yummy. My picky four year old even likes it. I believe the brand I use is coconut secret.

    • I dislike the taste and texture of coconut. I wish I didn’t because it seems like there are many good coconut products out there.
