Number of Servings: 4


    24 oz Beef, top sirloin
    1.5 tsp Chinese Five-Spice Powder (by ROSIECOTTON19)
    2 tbsp Coconut Oil
    1 small Onions, raw
    335 grams Asparagus, fresh
    1.5 cup, strips or slices Carrots, raw
    4 clove Garlic
    1 tsp Orange Peel
    .25 cup Orange Juice
    .25 cup Bone Broth, Beef (by RPALAWSKI)
    4 tbsp Vinegar, white wine (by J123452)
    0.5 tsp crushed red pepper (by GARPER)
    8 cup Cabbage, napa
    0.25 cup, slivered Almonds


1. Cut beef into very thin slices. (Partially freeze for 20 minutes to make this easier.)
2. Toss beef and 5-spice powder together in a large bowl.
3. Cut the red onion into thin wedges.
4. Trim the asparagus and cut into 3 inch pieces.
5. Julienne the carrots (if not using pre-cut match stick carrots)
6. Mince the garlic
7. Shred the napa cabbage
8. Heat 2 tsp of coconut oil in a large skillet or wok over medium-high heat. Add half the beef, and cook for 3-5 minutes until browned. Transfer beef to a bowl and repeat with the remaining beef.
9. In the same skillet or wok, add the remaining oil plus the onion. Cook and stir for 3 minutes.
10. Add the asparagus and carrots; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until they are crisp-tender. Add garlic and stir for one more minute.
11. Make sauce as follows: Combine orange peel, orange juice, beef bone broth, vinegar and crushed red pepper in a small bowl.
12. Add sauce and all the beef (with juices in bowl) to the vegetables in the skillet or wok. Cook and stir 1-2 minutes until heated through.
13. Use a slotted spoon to transfer beef and vegetables to a large bowl. Cover to keep warm, while you continue cooking the sauce (uncovered) over medium heat for 2 minutes.
14. Add the cabbage, and stir for 1-2 minutes until cabbage is just wilted.
15. Divide cabbage and any cooking juices among four serving plates. Top evenly with beef mixture. Sprinkle each with 1 tbs of slivered almonds and serve.
