Asian Beef Stir-Fry

I used some leftover flank steak (from the steak subs) and chopped into small pieces. I added broccoli slaw, snap peas, onions and Soyaki sauce (a mix of teriyaki and soy sauce). The whole thing took about 10 minutes! As is this is low are carbs so you will need to add some to balance.

How are carrots on the zone? I can't really find anything on them except cooked carrots aren't favorable.

carrots are not the best choice due to their high glycemic index (sugar that enters into the bloodstream), but in small amounts (such as broccoli slaw) they are fine. If you are wanting to make carrots a more substantial portion of your carbs try and balance them out with something that has a very low glycemic index so that you do not get an insulin spike.
