Steak and Vegetable Stir fry #Paleo #cleaneating #steak #vegetable #asianfood

Slices of steak mixed with fresh crisp vegetables and a flavorful sauce to boot, this is one awesome Paleo recipe if you are on the “clean eating” train!

I am a huge ethnic food fan, asian, thai, mexican you name it! When it comes to asian food, I am all about the sauce. One of my favorite dishes served at Pei Wei is Honey Seared Chicken, why? Because the sauce in this chicken dish is incredible. I could probably just eat the rice and the sauce by itself … hold the chicken.

So when I saw this paleo recipe for Steak & Vegetable Stir fry I was all over it because I love anything Asian inspired. One problem. There was barely any sauce to this dish! Eerr… do people not like sauce as much as me? ย I decided to go forward with the dish anyways and so glad I did. Sauce or no sauce this Steak Stir fry is awesome! Plus it is packed with vegetables, and I mean 5 cups of vegetables!

Because I’m a mommy, most of the dishes I feature on Joyful Healthy Eats are actually our dinner for that night. ย Usually after I’m finished making a meal I will get everything set up and take a picture real fast, most of the time sun/light is my friend.

However, this particular day was gloomy, rainy, and overcast all day. Which, if you are a food blogger, is bad ju ju for picture taking time. After I finished the meal I found myself literally running around the house with all my dishes set trying to chase the light so I could get a good picture. Keep in mind I have a toddler following me as well as a 75 pound lab, lets just say it was interesting to coral everyone and get the picture off. I ended up shooting this one the floor, with the backyard door open {while the rain is falling down}, and my son trying to grab the chopsticks so he can eat the prized posession. ย Sheesh… the life of a food blogger. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Mmmm!! This recipe sounds SO good! We LOVE stir fry and I’ve been contemplating starting the Paleo diet. Thanks for sharing this recipe! We’ll definitely be trying it out!

    1. Thanks Megan! It really is good for you. The only hard thing is the planning portion and that first week of getting use to know wheat. You don’t realize how much you eat it until you can’t have it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I absolutely love stir fry, it’s just so versatile and always tastes amazing. Your recipe looks and sounds fantastic. Those plates you are using are awesome by the way! Feel free to stop by my link party today, #OmNomNomFriday, and share your fantastic creations. Have a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy Blogging!

    1. Thanks Eric! You are so right, stir fry is totally the most versatile dish ever! Thanks for the link party invite, I will stop by if I get a chance. ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you have a great week!

  3. Hahah that’s so funny. Your son helps keep things exciting :). Chasing the sun/light is definitely my least favorite thing about blogging. Because I work 9-5 I am limited to the weekends to get all my pictures and God forbid someone wants to hang out or go come visit during prime sunlight, I’m in panic mode. Or like right now when I have only the morning to bake and take pictures but it’s snowing like hell and doesn’t seem as if sun is in sight. Oh food blogger problems. Good thing is the food is always there looking so good and waiting for a bite…like this stir fry!!

    1. haha… you seriously sound like me. Why something or someone throws off “my schedule” I don’t know what to do with myself. Thank goodness I married a man to help ground me and take a breather!

      P.S. your photographer has been looking awesome lately! You must have learned some good tips at the Pillsbury thing you went too!

  4. Hi Krista! This stir fry looks outstanding! I’m always looking for healthier dinner ideas, especially for weeknights. And I’m totally with you on the sauce! Its what makes a good asian dish, outstanding!! (I have yet to find a good cashew chicken recipe that even comes close to the sauce from our favorite asian restaurant.)
    Stopping by from Show Stopper Saturday – as always, thanks so much for hosting! ~Erin

    1. Glad I have another sauce fan! It really is the asian food secret, good sauce good food! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Oh… cashew chicken sounds delicious right about now, YUM! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for linking up each week Erin, always love your stuff! Hope you have a great start to your week.

    1. I know right! Why will mother nature not cooperate with us, doesn’t it know that us food bloggers need natural light! Sheesh! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope the sun comes out be you soon, I remember living in the midwest and it definitely even starts to effect your mode. Crazy… sun does bring in the sunshine in more ways than we think! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks so much for popping in girl!

  5. Love this post Krista, we’ve been having such gloomy weather where I am lately too. We love stir fries and this one sounds fantatsic! Love all the veggies in here and your lil guy is too cute trying to sneak some of this away – although I don’t blame him – it looks delicious girl!

    1. Luckily the gloomy weather was that one day, of course, when I’m trying to take pictures. The rest of the week has been beautiful! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Little man is always trying to swipe my food while taking pictures, I usually have to be super efficient and take my picks fast before those grabby little hands get in there. haha… THanks so much for stopping by Kelly!

  6. Beth

    Loved this recipe! Husband loved it to and he is so picky. He never eats green beans either and he ate them right up with this dish. Thank you!

    I just made this dish for dinner tonight and it was a hit in this house! My husband, who isn’t a big fan of Asian dishes, cleaned his plate and had to share some of his food with one of our cats. This same cat snagged a piece off of his plate and took off with it! So I’d say it’s a hit for everyone in this house.
