Can I make this steak and shrimp stir fry ahead of time?
Definitely. I actually think it’s even better cold straight out of fridge as leftovers. However, I am a huge leftover fan so that might not be for everyone. Meal prep this and add it to your weekly rotation.
How long should I marinate the steak?
Do not skip this part. This is the most important part of the steak and shrimp stir fry recipe. Marinating the meat not only gives it delicious flavor but it also makes the meat so much more tender.
Ingredients and Substitutes:
These are the main ingredients and substitutions. See recipe card below for full ingredients list and instructions for Steak and Shrimp Stir Fry.
Flank Steak: you can substitute flank steak with your favorite cut of steak. I prefer flank as it marinates well and the lime juice in the marinade really breaks it down making it perfectly tender.
Coconut Aminos: why coconut aminos? Coconut Aminos are soy, wheat and gluten free and much lower in sodium than soy sauce, making it a good alternative to soy sauce. You can absolutely use soy sauce instead in this steak and shrimp stir fry.
Dijon Mustard: while I would not recommend omitting this since it is such a great flavor add you can omit if you’re not a fan of dijon.
Jasmine Rice: to lower the carbs for this steak and shrimp stir fry use riced cauliflower in place of jasmine rice. You can substitute with your favorite rice like basmati, white or brown.
How to make:
Slice flank steak into strips against the grain.
In a zip lock or resealable bag add all steak marinade ingredients (coconut aminos, sesame oil, ginger, garlic) and sliced steak. Lay flat in the fridge for at least 4 hours to marinade. I like to do this first thing in the morning so that it can marinade all day before dinner.
Remove frozen shrimp from the package and place in a large bowl of warm, not hot, water. Let the shrimp defrost. You may need to drain the water and add fresh warm water 1 to 2 times to get the shrimp to fully defrost.
While the shrimp defrosts cook the steak. Add 1 tsp. olive oil to a pan over medium high heat. Once the oil is hot add the steak and sear on both sides for approximately 3 minutes on each side. You want to sear the steak but not over cook it.
Once the steak is cooked remove from the pan and set aside leaving all the juice from the steak in the pan.
Add defrosted shrimp directly to the pan of steak juice. Cook until they become pink and no longer translucent. Once cooked add to the plate with the steak.
Pour out the remaining liquid from the pan once you remove the shrimp.
Add the bag of vegetable to a microwave safe bowl halfway full of water and cook for 3-5 minutes until the vegetables are fork tender while not being to soft. You want them slightly al dente.
Once the vegetables are steamed add to the hot pan with 1/3 cup of coconut aminos and 1 Tbsp. dijon mustard and simmer.
While the vegetable simmer cook the rice in the microwave according to the package instructions.
Pour cooked rice into the pan and mix together well to combine. Add shrimp and steak back to the pan. Top with chopped green onions and mix everything together well and cook for a few minutes to ensure the steak and shrimp warm.
Top your steak and shrimp stir fry with sesame seeds, additional green onions, red chili pepper flakes and/or dijon mustard.
How to serve
Top your steak and shrimp stir fry with sesame seeds, red pepper flakes and additional green onions. Serve immediately or meal prep into individual containers and store in the fridge.
If you’re meal prepping I would suggest chopping your steak into bite size pieces to distribute evenly between your servings.
Alternatively, you can measure out your total steak and divide by 5 servings, same with the shrimp to have the exact protein servings.
