Ginger Beef with Mango Salsa

Ginger Beef

As mentioned in a previous post, I am currently the June featured chef for US Wellness Meats! Below is one of the recipes that I shared with them for their site and the beef from US Wellness Meats was out of this world tender and delicious! 

Ginger Beef with Mango Salsa

2 beef inside skirt steaks (2 lbs of steak)

Lettuce leaves


¼ cup coconut aminos or wheat free tamari

1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce

1 teaspoon fresh grated ginger

Big pinch of cayenne pepper

Black pepper to taste

Mango Salsa

1 cup green mango, finely diced

1/2 small red onion, thinly sliced

1 avocado, finely diced

1/3 cup cilantro leaves, finely diced

½ teaspoon freshly grated ginger

1 teaspoon garlic powder

1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lime juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

Whisk all marinade ingredients together.  Cut each steak into three even pieces and toss in the marinade until all steaks are well coated.  Let the steaks sit in the marinade at room temperature for 20 minutes and then grill for 1-2 minutes on each side. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for 10 minutes or while you prepare the mango salsa.

In a medium sized mixing bowl, gently toss together all the mango salsa ingredients and set aside.   Thinly slice the grilled steak into strips.

To serve, place a few lettuce leaves on each plate, top with a serving of steak strips and finish with a large scoop of the mango salsa.

Serves 5-6.

    Sounds amazing, Sarah! And the TV interview was great, I didn’t realize you were so “local”….I am up here in the Redding area! Thanks for another great recipe

  2. Marcus says

    Great recipe Sarah!! Paleo foods are so simple & nutritious. Truly inspiring. Do you have recipes like this in your book too?

      • says

        It is true ALL of her recipes are easy and amazing. I was so happy to get her book for Christmas after finding Sara’s website. Always shocks me how the fewer ingredients the better the food.

  3. Sarah Lynne says

    Thanks Sarah! My partner and I loved this. It wasn’t too expensive either. It was only about 8 dollars for the ingredients, which we even bought at a Co-op.

    • Sarah says

      Awesome Sarah! So glad you loved it and I appreciate you sharing the cost, it’s so important for folks to see that this can be doable/affordable!

    This looks fantastic! I just happen to have everything on hand except the fish sauce, so I think I’ll definitely have to try this tomorrow.
    p.s. love the book, we have been trying so many recipes.

  5. Stephanie says

    What would you recommend as a good substitute for the beef in this recipe? I have a red meat intolerance and usually substitute with chicken for most beef meals, but I wondered if you had a good recommendation. I absolutely love your stuff! Thank you!

    • Sarah says

      I think chicken would actually be a great sub for this recipe! A white fish would be awesome too, or shrimp. : )

  6. Lindsay says

    Is there anything we could substitute for the tamari or aminos? Do you think beef broth might work?

    • Betsy says

      The second time I made this dish (it’s amazing, btw), I was on a 2 week RV trip and my pantry supplies were limited. We just marinated the steak in lime juice and that was plenty good enough. The salsa (and extra rare-ness of the steak 😉 is what makes this dish DIVINE.

  7. Carol says

    Thanks, Sarah! This recipe is fabulous! We substituted grilled zucchini for the lettuce. I am always looking for good, easy recipes and this one was added into our “rotation” of meals. We love your salisbury steak recipe also!

  8. Jordan says

    I have noticed that you use green mango in quite a few of your recipes. I’m embarrased to ask, but is green mango an unripe mango?

  9. Ellie says

    I was a silly and marinated the steak all day – this made it way too salty for me personally but the boy really liked it. I left the meat extra rare and served it over cauliflower rice. The mango salsa is DIVINE!! Thank you!

  10. Alisha says

    WOW! Sarah, your recipes continue to amaze me. Luckily, I have a Food Saver which marinated the meat very fast. I purchased Grass Fed Flat Steak. Just took a bite and almost shed a tear… DELICIOUS!! Thank you thank you for making Paleo easy.

  11. Jordan says

    Hi Sarah,

    I just wanted to say that this was a really great recipe and ended up in an epic win for me when I whipped it up for my mother and girlfriend. Anyway thanks again!

  12. Cathy says

    Outstanding!! I used a ripe mango and substituted parsley for the cilantro. I will definitely make this over and over again. Amazing tastes!! So quick and easy!

  13. says

    My oldest brother has taught me about the Paleo life style since November 2010. This is by far one of the best recipes I’ve found. What a wonderful meal.

    Thanks for the inspiration.

  14. Kara says

    Yummy! I was excited and nervous to try this recipe because in the past I have never had luck cooking this cut of meat, but I went for it and it turned good! Loved the mango salsa! Want to try this with chicken next. Thank you for a great recipe!

  15. Bonnie McCoumb says

    This was my first attempt at making a Paleo dinner and my entire family RAVED about it — even my 9 year old! Thank you so much. I love that eating healthy can also taste fabulous!

  16. says

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! This recipe is amazing! I’ve been Paleo for four months now and my husband said, “this is the best Paleo recipe we’ve ever made.” We made nummy noises while we enjoyed it. Good stuff. Heading to the bookstore now to grab your cookbook!

  17. AJ says
