This Korean-inspired AIP Sweet Potato Noodle Stir Fry is an easy one-pot meal that draws from the classic Korean dish, Japchae. It is paleo, gluten-free and so delicious.


  • 3 TBSP coconut aminos 
  • 3 TBSP AIP compliant fish sauce 
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TBSP olive oil (divided)
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 small yellow onion, sliced 
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 carrots, grated or julienned 
  • 2 cups broccoli florets 
  • 2 cups mushrooms, sliced (shiitake or button) 
  • chopped cilantro to garnish 
  • 6oz sweet potato glass noodles 


  1. Boil sweet potato glass noodles according to packaged instructions. Once cooked, run under cold water and set aside. 
  2. To a small bowl add coconut aminos, AIP-compliant fish sauce, balsamic vinegar and 1 TBSP olive oil and whisk to combine.
  3. Heat a large stockpot over medium heat. Once hot, add remaining 1 TBSP olive oil, onions and garlic, and sauté 2-3 minutes until onions begin to turn translucent. 
  4. Add ground beef and sea salt to the skillet, and allow to cook over medium heat.
  5. Once browned, use a slotted spoon to remove beef from pot (leaving juices and fat in the pot) and add in carrots, broccoli florets and mushrooms, stirring between each addition. Cook veggies for 4-5 minutes so that they soften, but maintain a bite to them. 
  6. Return beef to the pot, followed by the glass noodles. 
  7. Turn heat to low heat and pour prepared sauce over the entire dish, stirring to coat everything evenly.
  8. Adjust salt as necessary and top with chopped cilantro.
