Paleo Mongolian Beef

Not sure where I originally found this one, if you know, drop it in the comments and I can update my page : )

2 lbs beef round steak (flank steak could also work, but careful not to overcook it!)
about a half cup of arrowroot powder (or cornstarch would work if you’re not too strict)
1/4 cup beef broth
1/2 cup coconut aminos (gluten free soy sauce would also suffice if you’re not too strict)
5 garlic cloves, minced
5-6 green onions, chopped
2 carrots, thinly sliced and chopped into bite-sized pieces
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
2 tsp sesame oil
2 tsp ginger, freshly grated (or about 1 1/2 tsp ground ginger)
1 tsp molasses
1 T almond butter
2 T honey
1 T red chili paste (or chili flakes would work, too) – use less if you don’t like spicy food!
1/4 tsp ground pepper

optional extras to add in at the end: toasted sesame seeds, more chopped scallions, steamed broccoli

The Process:

Cut your round steak into thin slices.

Dredge through the arrowroot powder until they are lightly coated on all sides.  Set aside meat.

Combine all other ingredients in the crockpot.  Mix well.

Place meat on top and lightly toss to coat the meat.  I used a rubber spatula and just sort of pushed the meat around until it was semi-submerged but still sort of coated with the arrowroot powder.

Cook on LOW for 4 hours, or until meat is no longer pink and has reached your desired consistency.
