Cooking Utensils

  • small boiling pot for marinade
  • 5-quart dutch oven or nonstick deep skillet


Marinade Directions:

  • Combine liquid aminos, 1 cup water, garlic, ginger and brown sugar in a small saucepan.
  • Simmer 2 minutes or until brown sugar is dissolved.

To make a thicker “Slurry” or sauce:

  • Combine 2 tbsp water and 2 tbsp cornstarch. Pour into the boiling sauce a little at a time to reach desired consistency.

Beef and Broccoli:

  1. In a nonstick 5-quart Dutch oven or deep skillet, cook ground meat over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until brown. Do not drain. Meanwhile, make broccoli as directed on bag.
  2. Add diced green onions to the pan with ground meat and cook 1 minute.
  3. Stir in rice and teriyaki sauce (from above). Cook and stir about 2 minutes or until rice is heated through.
  4. Add the broccoli and water chestnuts, combine well.



  • To save time you may use a pre-made teriyaki sauce. Just be mindful of the saltiness.
  • May sub liquid aminos for low-sodium soy sauce or tamari sauce.
  • Corn starch is to help thicken up the sauce.
  • For paleo-goers sub the brown sugar for honey or maple syrup and use the cauliflower rice in lieu of basmati rice.
