  • 1 lb of Ground beef
  • ½ teaspoon of salt or salt to taste
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese Five Spice
  • ¼ cup of Coconut Aminos Teriyaki Sauce
  • 4 Green Onions
  • 5 Baby Bell Peppers may sub with 1 large bell pepper, julienned
  • 1 large Carrot julienned
  • 3-4 yellow squash cut into noodles
  • 3 Bok Choy may substitute with Baby Bok Choy, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of Chinese long beans about 5 beans, cut into 2 inch pieces
  • Other veggies as desired
  • Drizzle of Toasted Sunflower Oil for garnish optional


  • Add ground beef to a hot wok or sauté pan on medium heat and cook until all of the visible pink color of the meat is gone
  • Then add salt, garlic powder, ground ginger, coconut aminos teriyaki sauce and Chinese Five Spice and continue to Sauté for about 2 minutes or until all the spices mix well with the ground beef
  • Next increase to high heat and add the green onions and sauté for a minute, then add the remaining vegetables (except for the squash noodles) in the order of toughest to cook. For instance, I add the green beans first sauté for a few minutes, next I add the pepper and carrots, then the bok choy is added last
  • Once your vegetables are sautéed to your liking remove from the heat, then add the squash noodles and mix together well
  • Serve with a drizzle of sunflower oil if you like


Do not sauté the squash noodles or they will become mushy
You may substitute the Chinese Long Bean for Green Bean
You may substitute the Bok Choy for Shredded Green Cabbage
Mix it up by adding your own vegetable combinations, mushrooms are a great addition to this dish
