Additional Tips

For some extra Asian flavors, consider adding a bit of chopped fresh ginger, minced garlic, and sesame oil to the beef together with the starch. And speaking of starch, you can replace it with glucomannan powder, which is pure fiber, so it contains no calories or carbs. Keep in mind that you’ll need to use ½ a tsp of glucomannan for every 2 tsp of starch.
