  • 8 oz Thinly sliced beef such as New York strip steak
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 inch piece of ginger minced
  • 2 tbsp Avocado oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute like Swerve
  • Sugar snap peas optional, for added crunch
  • Cauliflower rice for serving


  • Start by seasoning your thinly sliced beef with a pinch of salt and pepper, and set it aside.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, add a few tablespoons of avocado oil. Once the oil is heated, sauté the minced ginger and garlic for a few minutes until fragrant.
  • Now, it’s time to create the flavorful sauce. Pour in 1/4 cup of soy sauce or coconut aminos, followed by 1/4 cup of water. Finally, add 1/4 cup of your preferred brown sugar substitute (we recommend Swerve). Allow the mixture to simmer for a couple of minutes until the sauce thickens slightly. Then, set it aside.
  • In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of avocado oil and place your seasoned beef in the pan. Sear the beef for a few minutes on each side until it’s cooked to your desired level of doneness.
  • Pour the sauce back into the skillet with the seared beef. Simmer the beef and sauce together for a few more minutes, allowing the flavors to meld perfectly.
  • For a delightful twist and added crunch, toss in some sugar snap peas. Sauté them for just a few minutes until they’re tender yet still crisp.
  • With your Mongolian beef and sugar snap peas ready, serve them over a bed of cauliflower rice for a low-carb and keto-friendly meal.
