Chinese Five Spice Stirfry

Monday, September 16, 2013


  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Oil
  • 2 teaspoons of Chinese Five Spice Powder
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • Assortment of veggies e.g.. onions, bok choy, kale, mushrooms, red peppers, snap peas, broccoli etc..
  • Sliced Beef or Chicken
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 1 Tablespoon Tahini
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Aminos
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Sauté the onions and five spice powder in the sesame oil, if you need more fat then just use something like coconut oil or duck fat.  

Add your veggies and cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the chicken or beef (small pieces), add the broth and tahini and simmer for about 10 minutes.

Take off the heat and stir through the coconut aminos and serve, top with sesame seeds.  

Notes: Cashews are a yummy addition, Beef cooks much faster so reduce the simmer time to about 3-4 minutes.
