Paleo Thai Basil Beef
Health Highlights


454 gm Beef, flank (thinly sliced against the grain)
2 tbsp Ghee
1 medium pepper(s) Red bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 medium Yellow onion (diced)
3 clove(s) Garlic (sliced)
1/4 cup Coconut aminos, Coconut Secret (do not try to sub with liquid aminos)
2 tsp Fish sauce
1 tsp Honey
1 pinch Salt
1 cup Thai basil, fresh (packed)
1/2 cup Cilantro (coriander) (for garnish)


  1. Place a large saute pan ove medium-high heat, add ghee. Once pan is very hot, space out some of the meat in the pan making sure not to crowd it, and sear until browned on both sides, about 2 minutes per side depending on the thickness. It's very important not to crowd the pan here because you want to get a crispy crust on the meat. Once meat is browned, set aside and continue with the rest of the meat until it is all cooked.
  2. Add a little more ghee to the pan then add the bell pepper, onion and garlic and saute until peppers are soft and onions are translucent, scraping the brown bits from the bottom of the pan, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the coconut aminos, fish sauce and honey to the pan with the pepper and onions and let cook down over a high heat for about 5-8 minutes. Once slightly reduced, add the beef back to the pan along with the thai basil leaves and mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until basil is soft and wilted.
  4. Garnish with cilantro on top!
