for the sauce:

  • 1/4 cup tamari*
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 tsp fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tbsp arrowroot or cornstarch


  • Whisk sauce ingredients together in a bowl and set aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat, then add the Sliced Beef Sirloin and cook for 20-30 seconds per side or until it's cooked to your preference. According to the packaging, the recommended cook time is 30-60 seconds per side.
  • Reduce heat to low, then pour the sauce into the skillet. After 1-2 minutes, the sauce should thicken, so be sure to move the beef around so that it gets coated in the sauce. Then, remove the skillet from the heat.
  • Pour rice into a bowl, then top it with the beef and green onions. Enjoy!
