I made this Fake Away a couple of weeks ago, and after some tweaking it’s finally ready to share! I am quite obsessed with cauliflower, can you tell? I use it in everything, even in smoothies when I don’t have an avocado or banana on hand, it adds a thickness.
This is a quick and delicious alternative to the traditional take away.
1 lb flank steak (buy in strips or slice; I bought in cubes), or replace with mushrooms or tofu
1/4 cup cornstarch or flour
1/3 cup of soy sauce or coconut aminos
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/2 white onion, diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup water
6 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp grated ginger
mix of bell sliced bell peppers
In a measuring cup or small bowl, whisk the soy sauce, ginger, honey and water until well combined.
Heat the coconut oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Sautee the onion and garlic until soft.
Pour the soy sauce mixture into the sauce pan. Let it come to the boil, then add your cornstarch or flour. Continue to whisk until the mixture thickens, this should take about 2-3 minutes.
Add the meat, being aware not to overcrowd the pan and pieces of meat. Cook through. Then add your vegetables. Serve over Sesame Cauliflower Rice.
