Stir-Fry Steak and Crisp Greens Salad

This delectable salad is a family favorite, which is why I made sure to include it in The Paleo 30-Day Challenge.
If you’re new to the Paleo way of eating, you may not be familiar with coconut aminos, the perfect coconut-based Paleo substitute for soy sauce. You can find coconut aminos in health food and
specialty grocery stores, as well as most major grocery stores.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 people


  • 1 large head romaine lettuce (enough for 12 cups chopped romaine)
  • 1.5 lb pounds flank steak
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • .5 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 2 medium red bell peppers, sliced
  • 1 cup green beans, cut into 2-inch lengths
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


  • Chop the romaine lettuce into 2-inch-wide pieces and place in a large serving bowl. Set aside.
  • Slice the steak across the grain into ¼-inch strips and then cut the strips in half so they are 4 inches long or less. Set aside.
  • Heat the avocado oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for 2 minutes, until they start to turn translucent.
  • Increase the heat to medium-high and add the beef, sea salt, pepper, and coconut aminos. Stir-fry the beef until it starts to brown but is still red in the center, then add the bell peppers and green beans.
  • Cook for 1 to 2 more minutes until the green beans turn a bright color and the beef is cooked to your liking.
  • Using tongs or a slotted spoon, transfer the contents of the stir-fry to the bowl of lettuce.
  • Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar and toss all the
    ingredients together.
  • Serve on individual plates. Leftovers can be refrigerated
    for up to four days.
