If You Are Hungry, Welcome to TangAndSpice!

Hi there! I love cooking, and so if you are hungry for some great “fodder” then welcome to TangAndSpice! I want to start off with a quick recipe for you to jump into right away! This one is a VERY easy Beef and Broccoli recipe that I have adapted from a few others here on line.



2/3 cup Tamari (gluten free soy sauce)

1/2 cup chicken stock

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup REAL maple syrup (my adaptation)

2 tablespoons vinegar (I just use ACV – apple cider vinegar)

2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed

6 cloves garlic, finely minced (you can go lighter if you’re not a garlic fan… but why would you?)

1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 tablespoon cornstarch

1 teaspoon dried ginger (or, finely chop up about ½ inch of peeled, fresh ginger)


1-2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted

1 pound flank steak (this works best if you slice it VERY thinly, against the grain)

1 large head broccoli, cut into small, bite-sized florets (One of my friends does a VERY quick blanche in boiling water just so the green “pops” – but you don’t have to do this.)


Coat the meat in a tablespoon of the coconut oil, and heat the rest of the oil in a large skillet or wok, over medium to high heat. Once hot, add the flank steak and cook fast, for 3-4 minutes until it is brown/seared.

Then, add the broccoli and tamari/soy sauce mixture and cook until the broccoli is tender (but not mushy!) and slightly thickened. Shouldn’t take more than a couple minutes or so!

Serve hot over rice. Let cool in stomach! 🙂
