Does that look odd? Odd or not, it’s zucchini and it tastes pretty darn good.
Couple weeks back, right around the time that I started to freak out about the amounts of zucchini I was seeing, I first went to my tried and true recipe for Stir Fry Zucchini Noodles.
While preparing the zucchini for stir fry, my other half was working on this Grilled Flank Steak recipe outside. Right at that moment it occured to me; WHY don’t I add some steak to these zoodles and make it a complete meal?! #mindblown
Thus, I took half of his flank steak, cut it up into strips, and a new Diethood recipe was born.
HOW TO MAKE STEAK STIR FRY WITH AN EASY STIR FRY SAUCE:
- Grab a wok or a frying pan and heat up some coconut oil. You can also use vegetable oil, but the coconut oil adds to the flavor.
- In the meantime, cut up your steak into 1-inch wide strips and add to the hot oil.
- Next, grab a vegetable peeler and a few zucchini; using the vegetable peeler, slice the zucchini lengthwise into long strips. Add the zucchini to the frying pan.
- Combine soy sauce and garlic in a little bowl, then add it to the steak and zoodles.
- Garnish with some toasted sesame seeds, if ya want to, and voila! Din din is served!
By the way, the easy sauce will surprise you because it’s really GOOD.
WHAT IS THE BEST KIND OF STEAK FOR A BEEF STIR FRY?
BEST beef cuts for stir frying are skirt steak and flank steak. Both cuts are lean with lots of flavor and are best when sliced thin and stir-fried. However, other tender beef cuts, such as sirloin, ribeye, or top loin, can also be cut into strips and used in stir-fry recipes.
- Have all your ingredients prepped before you start cooking because this steak stir fry recipe comes together quickly.
- I tried this recipe with spiralized zucchini, too, and while it was still just as delicious, I really liked the texture much, much more with the zucchini strips.
- Serve this steak stir-fry over steamy white rice… OR NOT! The zoodles side dish is plenty.
