Sweet and Oniony Beef

With Christmas season upon us, I must admit that I have been struggling to keep up with my all homemade meals, grocery shopping and whole food eating. With all the Christmas parties, concerts, weddings, and friends home from out of town, things are a little crazy around our place! So crazy, I forgot to take a picture of this dish! It’s beautiful though with the green peppers, onions, red tomatoes and beef! Very Christmas-y!

This dinner is simple and got rave reviews w/my husband!

Sweet & Oniony Beef

1 lbs. steak of your choice (I used Top Sirloin)
2 Onions, diced
3 Tbs Honey
1 Tbs Garlic, minced
1 Green pepper, sliced
1 Can diced tomatoes, juice drained
2 Tbs arrowroot powder
Salt and pepper to taste

Cut your steak into ½ in. wide strips. Brown beef in a large skillet with a bit of coconut oil, Season meat w/salt and pepper to taste. When meat is almost done, add onions and sauté until onions are translucent. 

Add the honey, garlic and cover the dish until about half way covered w/water, bring to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes add pepper and tomato and simmer for 10 more minutes.

Bring to a low boil.  Mix arrowroot powder with cold water (just a little bit, enough so the arrowroot powder mixes in) and add to hot liquid, stirring constantly until thick.

Serve over brown rice or quinoa.
