  • Author: Mila Clarke Buckley

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x
  • Diet: Low Salt


Low carb beef and broccoli with low salt, low carbohydrates and lots of protein and flavor.


  • One pound of ribeye steak, cubed and trimmed of fat
  • 330 G or 4 cups of frozen broccoli florets
  • 15 grams grated Ginger root, or one small knob of ginger
  • 175 G of grated carrots or one cup
  • 105 G of white onion, or one cup
  • 30 g of sugar snap peas or 1/4 cup
  • two cloves of garlic
  • one cup of mr. spice garlic steak sauce
  • 2 tablespoons of avocado oil
  • Lime for brightness at the end (optional)



  1. Add your ribeye to is Ziploc bag and keep the end open.
  2. With a kitchen mallet, or a heavy pan, pound the beef until it is about half of its original thickness.
  3. Cube your beef, making sure to get rid of large chunks a fact.
  4. Pour your Mr. Spice Garlic Steak sauce over the beef,  and toss until completely coated.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour for more intense flavor, but you can also cook the dish immediately. 
  6. Make sure your meat comes to room temp before cooking your dish, so the steak cooks completely evenly.
  7. Julienne your carrots, give your onions, garlic and sugar snap peas a rough chop. (I used my mini food processor for this step)
  8. Grate your ginger and take your broccoli out of the freezer.  Set aside all of your chopped ingredients.
  9. Heat your pan to medium heat and add avocado oil
  10. Cook the onions until translucent, then add carrots , ginger, and garlic. let those cook for about 5 minutes. Season your veggies with salt at this step. 
  11. Add in your marinated beef, and stir. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until steak is at desired doneness. I cooked mine to medium temperature.
  12. Snap peas and broccoli, and cook until broccoli is completely cooked through, about 2 minutes.
  13. Add lime juice for a touch of brightness (optional, but delicious).
  14. Serve and enjoy!


  • Make your prep easier by purchasing pre-cut veggies. it cuts down on the prep time even though it may be a little bit more expensive than buying ingredients and chopping them yourself.
  • Cauliflower rice is an excellent side for this. Plain Jasmine Rice also work if you’re not so worried about your carb intake.
