Asian Veggie Noodle Bowl with Grilled Steak
PREP TIME: 10 MINUTES
COOK TIME: 30 MINUTES
TOTAL TIME: 40 MINUTES
Serving Size: 4
lFor the noodle bowl
1 pound beef tenderloin (you can also use flank steak)
2 tablespoon olive oil, divided
1 head broccoli, separated
10-12 mini sweet peppers, sliced
1 (8oz) bag sugar snap peas
1 8oz package brown rice noodles or vermicelli noodles (you can also just use angel hair pasta)
pinch or salt
pinch of pepper
1/2 cup tahini
3 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons fresh squeezed orange juice
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 teaspoons fish sauce
4 teaspoons sambal oelek
4 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
2 teaspoons orange zest
2 teaspoons minced ginger
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat your oven to 425* degrees.
Toss the broccoli and peppers with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, sprinkle with salt + pepper, and place on the baking sheet. Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until just starting to brown. Remove from the oven and toss well. Add the sugar snap peas and roast for 5 minutes longer.
Heat your grill to medium high or small cast iron skillet on medium high. Rub the steaks with 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper on both sides and grill or sear until your preferred doneness. I like mine about medium-rare, which was about 5 minutes per side (this depends on the thickness of your steak). Remove from heat, tent and let rest for 10 minutes while you prepare the rest of the meal.
Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook noodles according to package directions.
In a glass measuring cup or small bowl mix the tahini, soy sauce, orange juice, lime juice, brown sugar, fish sauce, sambal oelek, rice vinegar, toasted sesame oil, orange zest, grated ginger, and pepper. Whisk to combine.
Slice the steak into thin strips. In a bowl, toss the noodles with as much dressing as you would like (I used all of it).
Portion noodles in each bowl, then pour the veggies overtop. Top with each bowl with a serving of steak. Add more dressing if desired.
* To make this vegetarian swap the steak with mushrooms or just add more veggies to the mix!
