Slow-Cooked Asian Pepper Steak

If you’ve been following the Primal lifestyle for any degree of time, you know that we fully endorse steak. But in reality, we all know that every now and again, a steak, as tasty as it is, can get a bit… well, boring.

This recipe, however, puts an Asian twist on a traditional steak dinner with excellent results. The slow cooking process creates some seriously tender steak, and the extra time spent in the pot allows all the flavors to mix together to create a delicious dish.

And the best part? With a little forethought you can throw this together in the amount of time it would take to place a take-out order.

2 lbs. steak (sirloin is preferable, but any other good cut will do)
2 tbsp coconut oil
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/4 cup wheat-free tamari (similar to soy sauce)
1 16 oz can bean sprouts, drained
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
1 large green pepper, sliced in thin strips
1 small onion, sliced
Salt and pepper to taste

On a chopping board, cut the steak on an angle to make strips about a ½ inch thick. In a large frying pan, add the oil and heat. Saute the steak until it lightly browns. Drain excess fat, liberally coat the meat with ground pepper and put the meat in the crock pot. Add garlic and tamari, and mix so that the steak is thoroughly coated. Cook in a crock pot on low for 6 hours. One hour before serving, add sprouts, tomatoes, green peppers and onions and turn crock pot to high. Cook for one hour and then serve piping hot.
