  • 1 pound flank steak
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup sake or dry white wine, optional
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free tamari or coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon clover honey or pure maple syrup
  • Coconut or avocado oil
  • 8 ounces French green beans, cut in half
  • 1 bunch scallions, green parts only, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 5 ounces watercress, about 4 cups packed

  • Slice the steak as thinly as possible against the grain. Season generously with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • In a small bowl, stir together the sake (if using), tamari, vinegar, and honey until dissolved.

  • Set a large wok or heavy-bottomed skillet over high heat. Add a thin layer of oil and arrange the steak in an even layer.

  • Brown the meat, flipping once, until there’s a dark sear on both sides, about 3 minutes total. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Return the beef to the pan along with the scallions and toss to coat in the sauce.

  • To serve, arrange the watercress on a platter and top with the beef stir-fry and sauce. Serve immediately alongside white rice, if you like.
