Bring a small pot of salted water to a boil. Add the broccoli and carrots and cook for 4 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain and set aside.
Whisk the chili paste, soy, brown sugar, vinegar, sesame oil and cornstarch together in a bowl and set aside.
In a wok or non stick pan, add the coconut oil. Once the oil is hot, add the beef strips. Saute over medium heat until browned, about 7 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and reserved vegetables. Cook 2 minutes more to toast the garlic then pour in the sauce.
Cook for 3-4 minutes over medium-low heat and allow the sauce to simmer.
