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:
Garlic & Ginger Cauliflower Rice (above)
Any of those rices would work – or any invention you might come up with.
Vegan Spicy Ginger-Garlic Red Pepper Beef Steak
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!
