Place meat in a large bowl along with rice vinegar and coconut aminos. Toss to combine. Allow to marinate for 10 minutes or up to one hour.
Meanwhile, fill a large pot halfway full of water, bring to boil. Add the broccoli florets and boil 2 - 3 minutes, or until desired tenderness. Drain and set aside.
Prepare the sauce: Whisk all sauce ingredients together until combined in a large bowl and set aside.
Once steak has finished marinating, melt 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add meat in a single layer. Do not overcrowd the pan, cook in batches if needed. Cook until bottom is browned, then flip over and cook until just cooked through, about 3 or 4 minutes, draining off excess liquid if needed. Set meat aside. Note- If your pan is burned on the bottom, rinse it out with room temperature water and scrub out all the burned pieces. You don't want your dish to taste burned! Then, heat up more oil before the next batch.
Add the garlic to the skillet and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Be careful not to burn it!
Add the sauce, broccoli, and meat. Stir to combine.
Continue stirring for 1-2 more minutes, or until sauce comes to a simmer and thickens.
Remove from heat. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve over rice or cauliflower rice.
I've tried this recipe with many other cuts of meat and didn't like the results. I recommend only using Flank Steak for this recipe.
If you're not Paleo and eat soy, feel free to use gluten-free soy sauce instead of Coconut Aminos.
The fish sauce and sherry cooking wine add a lot of depth of flavor so I don't recommend omitting them. Fish sauce can be found on the International aisle of most grocery stores and sherry cooking wine can be found with the vinegar.
For the sweetener, any sweetener will work. However, sometimes erythritol-based sweeteners have trouble dissolving. So if you choose erythritol, I recommend the powdered variety. For keto, I prefer Besti Sweeteners. And as a special gift to my readers, I've teamed up with them to give you 10% off! Simply use the code "CRAVEABLE" at checkout.
