I was once asked for “PF Chang’s” clone recipes. I thought it was a cute idea, so I set out to create a batch of recipes based around those flavors and cooking techniques. Here I present a really nice “Black Pepper Beef” — a slightly sweet and spicy beef stir-fried with broccolini and finished with a glucomannan thickened coconut aminos sauce (glucomannan is a naturally occurring fiber which comes from the “konjac plant”). The glucomannan is completely optional to the recipe, but that little tiny bit of fiber will thicken the sauce, allowing it cling to the beef and broccolini florets. It’ll also resemble the PF Chang’s tastes and textures … just.that.much.more.
