  • 1 cup low-sodium organic beef broth
  • 1 tsp. unflavored gelatin (preferably from grass-fed cows)
  • 2 Tbsp. reduced-sodium tamari soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. cornstarch (preferably GMO-free)
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. grated fresh ginger (or ½ tsp. ground ginger)
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame oil
  • 1 lb. thinly sliced raw lean beef
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup onion, sliced (approx. 1 medium)
  • 1 cup red bell pepper, sliced (approx. 1⅓ medium)


  1. Sprinkle broth with gelatin. Let sit for 5 minutes.

  2. Combine broth mixture, soy sauce, cornstarch, garlic, and ginger; whisk to blend. Set aside.

  3. Heat oil in large skillet over high heat until very hot.

  4. Add beef; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 minutes, or until browned.

  5. Add broccoli, onion, and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until onion is translucent.

  6. Add broth mixture. Bring to a boil; gently boil, stirring frequently, for 2 to 3 minutes, or until thickened.

Recipe Notes

  • Good cuts of lean beef for stir-fry are eye of round, bottom round, or flank steak. Cutting across the grain will make the meat more tender.
  • Serve each portion with ½ cup cooked brown rice. Don’t forget to add 1 Yellow container.
