Take out? No thanks…make it myself!

I ❤ good stir fry. It has become a staple for me and I would make (pre-whole30) healthy stir fry with soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, etc. but now I just eat different and have other sauce recipes!

I started with thin sirloin cuts from Buford Highway Farmers Market. I sliced about 4 of them into strips and marinated in:

Juice and zest of 1 lime

1T each dried ginger and granulated garlic

2T coconut aminos

2T fish sauce

1T rice wine vinegar

As that was marinating, I cut up:

4 carrots, peeled and sliced on a bias

1 red onion, large cubes

Snow peas, about 1/2 lbs

10 baby bella mushrooms, quartered

Got my wok heated up with about 1T coconut oil. Cooked carrots, stirring sporadically until changed colors, added onion and cooked for 5 minutes and then added mushrooms and snow peas and cooked for another 5 minutes.

Then added meat and all extra sauce and stirred regularly until meat cooked to just over rare…about another 5 minutes.

I added a few more dashes of fish sauce, coconut aminos, & rice vinegar and a hit of ginger.


You could serve over coconut or lime cauliflower rice…but I just eat it like it is!


Oh. Em. Ghee!!!

New obsession is ghee…I actually bought it for a bit at Trader Joe’s b/c it was cheap…and easy. $2.99…

But then I wanted to use it more than other oils to cook with and have it handy for grilled cheese and quesedillas for the well as roasted potatoes and baked sweet potatoes.

Enter KERRYGOLD BUTTER…may I please say…It. Is. The. Best. I melt it in a small saucepan and then strain into a mason jar and it sits on my counter and I can use it for EVERYTHING…

And then…enter Costco and SALTED KERRYGOLD BUTTER. I am in Utopia.

Just made a double batch and I could eat it with a spoon.

Be sure to have cheesecloth! Best strainer!

*cook butter until brown and pour into jar through a cheesecloth (at least triple layered)…can air on your counter…no refrigeration needed
