Stir Fry Peppers and Beef

Stir Fry Peppers and Beef

This low carb beef and peppers recipe is an excellent choice for a tasty diabetic meal.

  Total Time: 45 Min 

  Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound top sirloin steak, sliced very thin against the grain
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
  • 1 small onion, sliced thin, 2 1/2 ounces
  • 1 small yellow bell pepper, julienned, about 3 1/2 ounces
  • 1 small red bell pepper, julienned, about 3 1/2 ounces
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon Cape Crystal xanthan gum
  • 4 ounces raw baby spinach, about 8 cups loosely packed

How to Make It:

Step 1:


In a wok or large skillet, heat the oil.

Step 2:


Stir-fry the beef, garlic and ginger over high heat just until the steak is partially browned and some pink remains, maybe 30 seconds to a minute.

Step 3:


Add the onions and peppers; stir-fry until tender-crisp about 1 minute or so.

Step 4:


Stir in the soy sauce and oyster sauce.

Step 5:


Sprinkle the xanthan gum over the meat and vegetables then stir in well. Cook very briefly just until the sauce thickens and coats everything.

Step 6:

Serve over the raw spinach. It will look like a lot of spinach per serving but it wilts down as the hot beef mixture sits on it. There was just the right amount to get a bite of spinach with each forkful of the beef and peppers.
