Who is in the mood for a bit of gut-friendly beef stir-fry? Although stir-fry meals are jam-packed with flavor, oftentimes the ingredients are not so easy to digest. So, I created this gut-friendly version for you.

This recipe is super delicious and very easy to make. Some added bonuses? It’s made without soy or gluten, and it still tastes great the next day!

Organic, grass-fed, ground beef is a great gut-friendly meat option. Ground meat is super easy to digest because it has no FIBER! This is what IBD-sufferers need as they heal their inflamed digestive areas. That being said, feel free to play around with different meats as your gut can tolerate – and of course the meat can be omitted completely for vegetarians. It will still be delicious!

*Make sure the ground beef (or any ground meat) that you are using is organic, grass-fed.

Now let’s get our stir-fry ON!

Ground Beef & Bok Choy Stir Fry:

Ingredients: Depending on your tolerance and level of your healing, please personalize this recipe as necessary! These are the ingredients we have found to be gut-friendly:

  • Organic Ground beef
  • Baby bok Choy (you can also use regular bok choy, but baby greens are always easier to digest)
  • Carrots
  • Onion (usually 1 is sufficient, but omit if needed as they can be hard on a sensitive gut)
  • Mushrooms
  • Zucchini (peeled and de-seeded if needed)
  • Fresh or powdered ginger
  • Organic Coconut Aminos (this is a soy sauce substitute that is soy-free)
  • Organic extra virgin olive oil

*Tip: You may want to wash your vegetables and fruit with white vinegar before cooking. This removes dirt, anything stuck on the surface and removes potential bacteria.


  • In a large pan cook the ground beef. I like to add a tiny bit of olive oil in the pan before throwing in the meat, to avoid the meat getting burned. You never want the meat to get burned or turn that dark brown/black from heat, as this is hard to digest.
  • As the meat is cooking, throw your onion and ginger in a separate pan with olive oil. Soften the onions and really allow the flavors to come out. Use as much or as little as your gut needs, as these ingredients are very potent in taste.
  • Add the onions and ginger, as well as all ingredients EXCEPT the baby bok choy, to your large pan of meat.
  • Simmer all ingredients on low and let the juices flow!
  • Lastly, add the baby bok choy on top and allow it to steam from the heat of the stir-fry. Put a lid over the pan and let the bok choy get soft. The softer it is the easier it is to digest!

Enjoy your beef stir fry with organic jasmine white rice, cooked sprouted quinoa, or on its own.
