227g Top Sirloin Steak
1 1/2 tsps Tapioca Flour
1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1/4 tsp Black Pepper
2 1/4 tsps Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 Carrot (medium, chopped)
1/2 Yellow Potato (large, chopped)
1/2 tsp Turmeric (ground)
1/2 tsp Coriander (ground)
1/2 tsp Cumin (ground)
1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
1 cup Beef Broth
2 stalks Green Onion (green parts only, chopped)
1/4 cup fresh Cilantro (chopped)
Cut steak into 1-inch cubes. Transfer to a mixing bowl with tapioca flour, salt and pepper. Toss until the steak is well coated.
Heat oil in a dutch oven or large pot over medium-high heat. Add the beef and brown it on all sides. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside. (Adjust the heat as necessary when browning the steak to prevent the bottom of the pot from burning. You may need to do the browning in batches.)
Add the carrots and potatoes to the pot along with the turmeric, coriander, cumin and ginger. Stir frequently for 2 to 3 minutes. If the spices start sticking to the bottom of the pot add two tablespoons of water to help them along. Add the browned beef back to the pan.
Add the broth to the pot, being sure to scrape the browned bits off the bottom. Cover with a tight-fitting lid, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 20 minutes.
Remove the lid and stir in the green onions and cilantro. Continue to simmer uncovered for 10 minutes. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed.
Divide into bowls and enjoy!
Too thick: If the stew thickens too much or if it’s looking a little bit dry, add extra broth or water one tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Leftovers: Store in an airtight container in the fridge up to 3 days. Freeze for longer.
No beef broth: Use vegetable or chicken broth instead.
