Recipe: Citrus Beef Salad Stir Fry [Paleo]

It’s recipe time, my loves! This is one of my favorite recipes from our Paleo cookbook. I’m a huge stir fry person. I don’t know why, but I really like it. They have a whole section in this book on stir fry so I’m pretty much in my glory here. Anyway. Here is the recipe for Citrus Beef Salad Stir Fry:

IMG_2958What you need:
cooking fat (coconut oil)
Stir Fry Beef (if you can’t find it already packaged, just buy 1 pound tender cut beef and cut it into thin strips).
1 onion – sliced
2 cloves garlic – minced
2 lemons – peeled and segmented. – Use the peel for 1 tsp. zest
2 oranges – peeled and segmented. Use the peel for 1 tsp. zest
1 Tablespoon lemon juice (from lemon #2)
1 Tablespoon orange juice (from orange #2)
1 tsp fresh ginger – grated
A big bunch of spinach (If you’re a big spinach fan like I am, use A LOT of spinach because it wilts down to almost nothing after you cook it for a few minutes.


Directions:
Step 1: Melt 1-2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large frying pan. Stir-fry the beef until ALMOST fully browned.
Step 2: Before it cooks completely, remove the beef from the pan and set it aside.
Step 3: Add a little less than a tablespoon of coconut oil (the pan will still have juices in it from the meats) and add in the ginger, onion, and garlic. Stir fry for about three minutes.
Step 4: Return beef to pan and add lemon & orange juices. Bring to a boil. Add the bunch of spinach.
Step 5: Cook only for about another minute or two, just until the spinach wilts.
Step 6: Serve over bed of segmented oranges and lemons, top with the zest for garnish.

And viola! There you have it, kids. My favorite paleo stir fry recipe so far. It’s super yummy. Try it out tonight and tell me watcha think! Also, in the book it says it serves 4… but I’d say this is more for like 3 people. Matt and I finished almost all of it. I’d add a little more spinach & beef if you’re cooking for 4 people. Use the amounts I listed above if it’s just you and one other person. Hope this helps! Until next time, kisses!
