Thinly Sliced Steak – You can use any steak you like, just keep in mind cheaper cuts will be more tough than more expensive cuts. I would go with a sirloin and cut against the grain.
Low Carb Sweetener – This recipe works with any sugar free sweetener that is a one for one replacement for sugar. I like to use Swerve or Lakanto which is a monk fruit sweetener.
Ginger Paste – This ingredient is found in most grocery stores in the produce section. I like it for it’s convenience, but if you want to avoid the added ingredients, you can also use fresh minced ginger
Xanthan Gum – This is an ingredient that thickens and emulsifies. A keto friendly substitute for cornstarch.
