  • 2 lbs. beef steak tips, or any beef steak cut into 1-2 inch cubes

  1. In a small to medium bowl, whisk the balsamic vinegar, coconut aminos, garlic, mustard, olive oil, and crushed red pepper. Add the beef tips and stir together to evenly distribute the steak and marinade. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
  2. After the steak has marinated for 24 hours, place a large sauté pan on medium heat and add the avocado oil, onions, and 1/2 teaspoon sea salt. Stir the onions occasionally and cook until they begin to caramelize about 8-10 minutes.
  3. Add the mushrooms, steak with any marinade left in the bowl, and 1 teaspoon sea salt. Stir everything to combine and continue cooking until the steak and mushrooms are done about 8-10 minutes.
