Healthy sauteed grass-fed beef and vegetables

1 medium red onion, cut in half and sliced medium thick

3 medium cloves garlic

3 tablespoons low-sodium chicken broth

1 small carrot, sliced on the diagonal

½ cup thinly sliced red bell pepper

1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

1 bunch asparagus, cut into 1-inch lengths, discard bottom fourth (about 2 cups when cut)

¾ pound grass-fed beef, sliced thin (¼ -inch)

2 tablespoons tamari soy sauce

1 tablespoon rice vinegar

Pinch red chili flakes

Sea salt and pepper to taste

2 to 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


Slice onion and press garlic; let sit for 5 minutes.* Heat broth in a 12-inch stainless steel skillet until it begins to steam. Add onion, carrot and bell pepper to the broth and healthy sauté, covered, for about 3 minutes over medium or low heat (low if your burner is high output).

Add ginger, garlic, asparagus and beef to skillet and continue to sauté for another 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Add tamari soy sauce, vinegar and red chili flakes. Stir together, then cover, cooking for another 2 to 3minutes. (It may take a few extra minutes to make sure the vegetables are cooked.) Season with salt and pepper to taste and sprinkle with the olive oil.


*Kitchen Ade note: George Mateljan’s book and website offers details on why it is good to let garlic sit before changing its temperature or PH level: “If you give your chopped/crushed garlic time to sit before changing its temperature [through cooking] or its pH [through the addition of acidic food like lemon juice], it will give the alienate enzymes in garlic an opportunity to work on behalf of your health.” For additional information, visit:

This aerial view from about 1950 shows Jack Keeler’s home on his homestead east of Soldotna. The stream to the left is Soldotna Creek, and the bridge across the stream probably allowed early access to the Mackey Lakes area. The road to the right edge of the photo leads to the Sterling Highway.
