I whipped both the rice & the beef up within 30 minutes – the beef part taking about ten minutes.  SO EASY!   This is quick, easy & the most exotic ingredient is dark soy sauce – which is a very optional ingredient.  As a Beyond Meat superfan – I was unfamiliar with these Gardein Beefless Tips – until today.    I must confess – I found them quite delightful.

This recipe is pretty healthy – especially if you use cauliflower rice.  I threw mine together with cauliflower, carrots, zucchini & jalapenos, ginger, garlic & some soy sauce and a squeeze of some Kung Pao sauce – because that was what I had.  You can stir fry any combination of veggies & spices you prefer.  Here are a few variations of cauliflower rice for you to consider:

Any of those rices would work – or any invention you might come up with.

Vegan Spicy Ginger-Garlic Red Pepper Beef Steak

Serves 2


9 oz vegan steak tips or other vegan beef

2 red bell peppers – sliced

1 onion – sliced in a similar shape to the bell pepper strips

Olive oil (or coconut oil)

1 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)

2 TBS minced ginger (I always use jarred because t is so much easier)

1-4 garlic cloves – minced

1 cup low-sodium soy sauce (or tamari)

1 cup water

2 TBS dark soy sauce (omit if you cannot find it)

1/2 cup (or more to taste) brown sugar

1-3 TBS cornstarch

Garnish – scallions & COOKED CAULIFLOWER RICE (make ahead because the beef cooks quickly)

Heat about 1 TBS oil & saute the red bell & onion & beefless tips over high heat until the vegetables begin to get soft – maybe 3-5 minutes.  Add the garlic & ginger & crushed red pepper.  Stir to combine and cook about 1 minute.  Add soy sauce, dark soy sauce, water & brown sugar.  Bring to a boil & stir in cornstarch 1 TBS at a time.  The sauce should thicken very quickly so you might not need to use a second or third TBS.  Your call.  If it gets too thick – just add water.

Serve with your cauliflower rice & some sliced scallions.  Mmmmm!

One thought on “Vegan Spicy Ginger-Garlic Red Pepper Beef Steak with Vegetable Fried Cauliflower Rice

  1. I find the juxtaposition of vegan and beef steak hilarious… perhaps that is the “delovely”.. regardless–it looks de-licious… The “beet” thing is also interesting–they are not only healthy and tasty, but should be used in lieu of corn to produce ethanol… Thanks for hosting/posting
