Stir Fry Ingredients

For the Steak:
  • 1 Pre Ribeye steak patted dry
  • 1 tsp high heat oil 
  • 1 tsp salt
For the Stir Fry:
  • 1 tsp high heat oil
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 yellow onion
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews

Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Soy Sauce*
  • 2 tbsp cashew butter, sun butter, or almond butter
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp garlic granules
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp Sriracha (plus extra for seasoning)
*Use Coconut Aminos or No-Soy Mushroom Sauce to make Whole30 and Paleo compliant.


  1. Preheat a large skillet to medium-high. Salt ribeye on both sides, then rub oil on both sides. Place steak into hot skillet. 
  2. Flip after about 3.5 minutes of consistent cooking, or until a nice sear has formed. Cook it for an additional 2 minutes on the other side and remove from pan.
  3. In the same pan, add 1 tsp oil, onion, and yellow pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until soft. If using a cast-iron pan, add a little water to steam veggies.
  4. Add broccoli, snap peas, and half the cashews, sauté for about 3 minutes, or until the veggies have some color. 
  5. In the meantime, make the sauce: Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl until completely emulsified. Pour mixture over the veggies and give it a good stir. Simmer and turn the heat too low to let the sauce reduce. 
  6. Slice the steak. Place the pieces into the stir fry. 
  7. Serve in a bowl, on top of rice, or cauliflower rice.
