    I love “Better than Takeout” Chinese food.  Ordering in definitely has its place in my life.  It is a convenience and timesaver. However most of the time, I would much rather avoid feeding my family excess salt and any msg.  So, I have created this Chinese Crispy Beef recipe. It tastes better than even my favorite takeout spot. Plus, It’s a natural and healthy dish; paleo, dairy-free, and gluten-free.  

    I opted to use tapioca starch (also known as tapioca flour)  in Chinese Crispy Beef for a couple reasons. I love its subtly sweet flavor and it gives the right amount of “gel” to the sauce.  It’s also a paleo-friendly starch. You can substitute cornstarch or potato starch as you wish. The green onions in this dish are not garnish.  They contribute a bite of crisp and acidity that brings balance to the entree as a whole. I strongly recommend not skipping them. Chinese Crispy Beef uses Stir-fry Beef.  If you can’t find that pre-cut at your butcher, then you can get a rib roast or other inexpensive cut and have the butcher cut it up for you or take it home and cut it into thin strips yourself.

    Chinese Crispy Beef is at it’s best fresh, but this dish will keep several days in the refrigerator or it can be frozen and oven warmed for a tasty make-ahead dish.  I like to serve Chinese Crispy Beef with fried rice (do you want a recipe for that?) and some roasted broccoli.
