Quick and easy. That's my motto during the week. Even when I plan and prep on Sundays, I still want fast weeknight meals. Kids activities, busy schedules, and a commitment to go to bed early, don't give me time to make complicated meals with lots of ingredients! I love this recipe not only because it's easy, but because my family thinks it's delicious!

2 tablespoons ghee (or butter)
1 pound ground beef
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 yellow or white onion, sliced (I cook this separately because my husband doesn't like onions)
2-3 celery stalks, sliced
2 carrots, peeled and sliced (or 10 baby carrots cut in half)
1 small head broccoli, chopped (I buy pre chopped broccoli florets)
1/2 teaspoon minced ginger (use fresh or we love The Ginger People Brand)
1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce (use cononut aminos for Whole30 option)
juice of 1 lime
kosher salt, to taste
ground pepper, to taste
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)

  1. Melt butter/ghee in large skillet or wok over medium heat. When hot, add garlic and onion. Cook for about 3 minutes.
  2. Add broccoli, carrots and celery. Stir.
  3. Add ground beef and a little salt. Brown the beef, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, until cooked through. About 10 minutes.
  4. Drain your stir fry to get any excess liquid from beef.
  5. Return stir fry to skillet over medium heat. Add your minced ginger, soy sauce (or coconut aminos), juice of lime and crushed red pepper. Stir to mix all ingredients together. Cook until most of your liquid has soaked up, about 5-10 minutes.
I love to serve mine over a bed of jasmine rice, quinoa or cauliflower rice!
