A gluten free, soy free, and paleo friendly Beef & Broccoli recipe that requires only one pan! This one is so easy you’ll want to make it every week!
Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend? Weekends like this past weekend make want to bring back “weekend recaps” on the blog, because I actually did something worth talking about. I saw my friend compete in her first figure competition which I was really excited I got to see.
We also had some epic Margaritas and Mexican food in downtown Mesa. On Saturday we basically had a dog park at our house for a few hours. A friend of mine asked us if we wanted to have a play date at the dog park but I’m a little hesitant at taking Nala to the dog park these days.
She got so sick last year around this time (picked up some kind of GI bug) I’m reluctant to take her. Her little GI bug cost us $1500 bucks last year, you feel me? Well our friend that invited us was meeting another friend, so they came over too.
This Mr. Hungry invited ANOTHER friend and his dog over since we were already going to have SEVEN dogs here. Now, my backyard isn’t that big, but big enough to let them play. So everything was going fine until Nala’s foot started bleeding all over the place.
This happened once before when we were in the temporary apartment in between houses. She was sprinting around the tennis courts and then all of a sudden her foot started bleeding. It’s weird because when you look at it you have no idea where the blood is coming from, one can only assume her toenails.
The weirdest thing is we don’t trim her nails but those back ones that the blood seems to be coming from are unusually short. Anyways, we basically had to lock her in her kennel so the bleeding would stop. So then we had SEVEN dogs playing in our backyard while our dog was in the kennel.
One of our friends said it’s like when you go to a party and the host gets hammered and goes to lay down. That was totally Nala, went to hard to fast and had to tap out.
Then on Saturday night, I met my mom to see a comedy show in Tempe. It’s really nice that we are so much closer to town now and to her. We used to live in a suburb called Gilbert but it was like 45 minutes from downtown.
It was really hard to get to the airport or meet anyone up to do anything so I’m definitely grateful that I meeting up with friends or family isn’t that big of a deal anymore! Alright, I’m out, lots to do to get a jump start on the week! Speaking of the airport I’m picking up my MIL later today so I want to make sure I get ahead so I can spend some time with her. Have a good one!

Paleo Beef & Broccoli
A gluten free, soy free, paleo friendly Beef & Broccoli recipe that requires only one pan!
- 1 tablespoon avocado or coconut oil + 1/2 tablespoon divided
- 1 lb flank steak I get mine from Butcher Box
- Sprinkle onion powder
- Sprinkle garlic salt
- Sprinkle black pepper
- 20 ounces broccoli florets two bags from TJ’s
- ½ cup coconut aminos + 2T, divided
- 12 ounces cauliflower rice
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger
- 1/8 teaspoon garlic
- garnish: sesame seeds
- Sprinkle steak with onion, garlic salt, and black pepper on both sides. Cut the steak into very thin strips.
- Heat avocado oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook flank steak strips in the oil until it’s almost cooked all the way through, a few minutes. Then add ½ cup coconut aminos and cook until the coconut aminos turn into a thick syrup.
- FOR BROCCOLI: So, my secret with the broccoli is I buy steam in the bag broccoli and then just throw it in there with the coconut aminos after it’s thickened up. Your other option is to steam the broccoli in your instant pot or in the microwave. OR you could remove the beef from the pan and steam the broccoli in the large pan with about 1/3-inch water and the lid on. Then you would drain the water and toss with the beef.
- Toss broccoli and beef together, split it among 3-4 serving bowls.
- Add cauliflower rice to the skillet with ½ tablespoon oil, sprinkle with ginger and garlic. Stir frequently with a spatula or metal spoon. Once the cauliflower rice is tender coat with 2 tablespoons coconut aminos. Split between the serving bowls.
- Garnish with sesame seeds.
