If you’re looking for a fast and nutritious dinner, then this is a great recipe for you! It’s super fast because the beef and the zucchini are chopped into thin strips so that they cook quickly, and it’s delicious because the garlic, cilantro, and gluten-free tamari soy sauce (use coconut aminos instead of tamari sauce if you’re on AIP) add tons of flavor to this dish .
This recipe is AIP-friendly, Ketogenic, as well as Paleo. It uses easy-to-find ingredients, and it takes just 15 minutes to make.
Chop your beef into strips – you can use any cut of beef you want. I used a thin steak that I chopped up. If you can slice it against the grain of the meat then that will make it easier to eat.
Peel the zucchini and chop that up into similar sized strips. I did this by first chopping the zucchini into round slices and then chopping those slices into long strips.
Add in the garlic (you can mince it or just chop it up into thin slices or small pieces).
Add in the chopped cilantro.
Keep sauteing for another 1-2 minutes and then serve immediately. The beef is more tender if served warm. You can serve this dish with some white cauliflower rice for a delicious Chinese inspired Paleo/Keto/AIP meal, or you can serve it with a salad or some Paleo bread. I served this with a raspberry arugula side salad.
