Lola Berry's Beef, Broccoli and Cashew Stir Fry

I own Lola Berry's The Happy Cookbook.  It contains some really good recipes for those times when I am trying to eat a little bit more healthily.  I have previously made Lola's Paleo Chocolate Celebration Cake and her Fig, Peach and Cardamom Paleo Loaf from this cookbook.

This time, I decided to make one of her savoury recipes, and chose Lola's Beef, Broccoli and Cashew Stir Fry, the recipe for which is online here.  This recipe is unlike the stir fries that I normally make because there is no sauce added to it - you just have the juices from the vegetables and meat.  I worried that this would make the stir fry a little lacking in flavour, but it surprised me - it was so simple yet so tasty, and no sauce was required.  

I would definitely put this stir fry on regular rotation as a light, healthy main meal.

I don't have that cookbook but this sounds like a nice idea. Although the sauces are always what really get me-I love it when they soak into the rice :D

No sauce?? Sounds like a super easy way to make a stir fry---and I'm all in favor of that :) Hope you had a marvelous Easter!

Interesting to not have a sauce in a stir fry but I can see that the calorie count would be a lot more friendly without it. Love all the flavors in it, so that would be nice to have those stand out rather than be encased in a sauce. Might try this for lunch sometime, always love this sort of stuff for lunch and you can make small portions for one!
