Ginger Beef Recipe

My friend, Teresa, gave this recipe for Ginger Beef to me today. This is a recipe she makes every week for her son who is on a gluten free diet. Some people are sensitive to soy, but okay with fermented soy that is in Tamari, which is a wheat free soy sauce. Other people need to avoid soy altogether. We have just been able to have some soy and we use it occasionally.
Large knob of fresh ginger julienne into large strips (large strips make it for easy removal at the end.)

2 T extra virgin olive oil
1 lb of ground beef
Wheat free tamari***
Filtered water
Broccoli (steamed soft for the kids version)
Japanese rice – rinsed and cooked

Sauté the ginger in olive oil until slightly browned. Add beef and cook until browned. Remove fat from pan if you plan on serving right away. Add ¼-¾ cup wheat free Tamari and one cup filtered water, simmer. If you have time put the mixture in the fridge for easy fat removal.
When the brocolli is cooked puree in a food processor with liquid from the ginger beef. Remove and discard ginger from beef. Mix broccoli puree well into the rice, add in beef, and sprinkle with black sesame seeds.

***contains fermented soy…some people are sensitive to soy. If you are sensitive to soy, use 1-2 tsp salt and 1 T. fish sauce.
