  • 1 lb. ground beef, can sub ground turkey
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli florets
  • 1 cup sliced crimini mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbs. ginger paste or 1" knob ginger, peeled and chopped
  • 1 tbs. liquid aminos, coconut aminos or soy sauce
  • 1 can light coconut milk, shaken to mix
  • 2 tbs. chopped basil leaves
  • 2 tbs. coconut oil
  • 2 tsp. sriracha sauce
  • salt + pepper
  • sliced jalapeños, for serving


  • Start by melting coconut oil in wok or deep sauté pan over medium high heat. then add in ground beef, using a wooden spoon to break up, and season with salt and pepper. cook until no longer pink, and then add in garlic and ginger paste, then cook for another minute.
  • Lower heat to medium and add in broccoli and mushrooms, tossing in. add in liquid aminos (or soy sauce), coconut milk and 2 tsp. of sriracha; bring to a boil then turn heat to low. let everything simmer, cooking the coconut milk down to a rich, thick sauce.
  • Once thickened, about 6-7 minutes, add in basil and fresh jalapeños before serving!
  • I served ours with some cauliflower rice I steamed separately with salt and pepper, but this would taste amazing over jasmine or brown rice!
