Beef Stir-Fry with Noodles

This ingredient-rich but still pretty light stir-fry was obviously inspired to us by the Asian cuisine. It’s low on calories and not that high in carbohydrates. The iron and vitamin B12-rich sirloin steak, marinated in soy sauce and fish oil, is the perfect match for the noodles. And that’s especially true when everything is cooked with caramelized shallot and ginger and served dressed with citrus juice.

Ingredients

9 ounces sirloin steak, chopped
2 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon lemongrass, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fish oil
salt
4 garlic cloves, crushed
7 ounces noodles
hot water
1 teaspoon sugar
1 shallot, sliced
1 teaspoon ginger, shredded
1 chili, finely chopped
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon vinegar
1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
lemon juice (or lime juice) for dressing

Steps

  1. Add the meat, 1 tablespoon of soy sauce, the lemongrass, fish oil, and 2 crushed garlic cloves to a bowl. Season with salt and mix until even. Set aside to marinate.
  2. Add the noodles to a bowl, season with salt and cover with hot water. Let them soak for 10-12 minutes.
  3. Heat 1-2 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a pan over medium-high heat and add the marinated meat.
  4. Cook and stir until browned and add the sugar.
  5. Stir and cook for 1 more minute, than transfer the meat to a bowl.
  6. Using the same pan and the caramelizing drippings, add the shallot and cook it until tender.
  7. Stir in the remaining garlic, the ginger, and chili.
  8. Add the remaining tablespoon of soy sauce, the water, and vinegar. Stir in.
  9. Add the basil, noodles, and meat. Mix until even and remove from heat.
  10. Serve dressed with lemon juice or lime juice.
