What you’ll need:

  • ½ cup (115g) rice, raw
  • ½ broccoli head
  • 7 oz. (200g) beef tenderloin
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp. sesame seeds, to garnish

For the sauce:

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp. ginger, grated
  • 2 tsp. coconut sugar
  • 5 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 2/3 cup (150ml) of water
  • 2 tbsp. sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. potato starch


What you need to do:

Cook the rice according to instructions on the packaging. Wash the broccoli and separate it into small florets.

Mix all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and set aside until required.

Heat ½ of the coconut oil in a wok or deep pan over medium heat. Stir-fry the broccoli with some salt, adding a few tablespoons of water now and then and cook in this way for about 7 minutes. Remove broccoli from the pan and set aside.

Cut the beef into thin strips or chucks. Heat the remaining oil over high heat and stir-fry the meat for about 3-4 mins.

Pour in the sauce and bring to a boil. Simmer for another 2-3 minutes, then add in the broccoli. Serve with the cooked rice, and garnished with sesame seeds.
