Notes

Baby corn will add another 1-2 grams net carbs per serving. Other keto friendly vegetables like broccoli can be added or used in place of the peppers and or mushrooms.
For a thick sauce, sprinkle in about ¼ to ½ teaspoon xanthan gum. Adding in about a 1 to 3 teaspoons of coconut flour or almond flour to the soy sauce before adding may also work.
Flank steak is a popular cut to use in beef stir fry so it can be used instead of the sirloin.
