Beef Stir Fry – Soy Free

Beef Stir Fry – Soy Free

Soy Free Beef Stir Fry

Paleo, Gluten Free, Minimal Ingredients, Allergy Friendly


Hi, Mama! Before changing my lifestyle, I ate more rice than the hearty beef and vegetable part of a stir-fry. Sound like you?

Since I pulled the plug on all things grain in the house, rice doesn’t even make a guest appearance at the dinner table anymore. Instead I found enjoying my beloved stir fry with riced cauliflower.

The best part, my kids still think they are eating rice! And no, I do not feel bad for lying and you shouldn’t either!

Since eliminating rice from our diet, I’ve seen a huge improvement in my kids digestive issues subside. (yaya!)


This recipe is free of the top allergens including soy.

Whoa. Soy-free?

You read that right! This Soy Free Beef Stir Fry is made with coconut aminos instead of the traditional soy sauce you find in most restaurants. Coconut aminos are a great healthy alternative to soy sauce and (in my opinion) tastes better. See the difference below.


Soy Vs. Coconut Aminos

Soy Sauce

  • very salty due to the high volumes of sodium
  • contains naturally produced MSG during fermentation
  • contains GMO’s
  • it is full of gluten
  • most common food allergy is soy

Coconut Aminos

  • sweet tasting (very low sodium content)
  • contains zero chemicals or pesticides
  • gluten-free
  • soy-free
  • contains 17 essential amino acids

**do not get coconut aminos confused with liquid aminos. They are not the same thing. Liquid aminos are also a soy alternative, but they contain breakdown elements of soy.**
