Beef Marinade:
2 tbsp coconut aminos
1 tbsp Red Boat fish sauce
2 tsp toasted sesame oil

3 large cloves garlic finely minced
3-inch long thin sliced ginger, From index through ring finger quantity
2 red chili peppers (California fresno chili) remove seeds, slice to thin strips
3 bulbs scallions cut into 3-inch length. Separate white and green parts.


Thin slice 1lb. beef against the grain. Add coconut aminos, fish sauce, and sesame oil. Marinate the beef for 20 minutes.

In the meantime, prepare ingredients listed under “aromatics”.

Heat 1 tbsp cooking fat of your choice over medium-high heat in a skillet/saute pan. When hot, lower the heat to medium. Stir-fry the beef with the marinade until it’s no longer pink. Set aside.

Add a bit more cooking oil, saute the ginger, garlic, red chili peppers, and white color part of scallions under medium to medium-high heat until fragrant. Season with a small pinch of salt.

Add beef and green color part of scallions back to the saute pan. Toss everything to combine.

Recipe Notes

For make ahead meal prep, complete Step 1. Portion the beef into individual servings in ziplock bags. Squeeze out the air and keep the bags flat and store them in the freezer.

You can pre-chop the garlic and pre-slice the ginger, scallions, and red chilli peppers and store them separately in containers in the fridge or just prepare them before cooking.

Defrost the beef a night before in the fridge with a stray underneath the ziplock bag in case there's any leaking.

There's no need to add or measure any extra seasoning because we marinated the beef in advance.
