Add coconut oil to a large pan over medium heat. Once melted, add in slices of steak and cook covered until steak is no longer pink, stirring occassionally. This should take around 4-5 minutes.
Remove cooked steak from the pan and add in broccoli, along with about 1/2 cup of water. Steam broccoli until just tender, approximately 5-7 minutes.
While the broccoli is steaming, mix all sauce ingredients together in a bowl. The sweetener is optional, and can easily be omitted for Whole30 without much impact on the overall taste.
Once broccoli is tender, drain excess liquid and add in cooked steak and sauce. Stir to coat the broccoli and steak with the sauce. Cook on low heat for 2-3 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken a bit more. Remove from heat and serve right away. Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
