Zoodles! They’re back! I’m such a fan on the zoodle trend. First, because I tend to cook at home during the week and during the week I like to load up on vegetables. Zoodles are a great way to incorporate lots of vegetables for very little calories as opposed to traditional pasta noodles, which can pack a calorie punch. I like to save my calories for my main entrée component…the meats! In this case, a delicious New York strip steak. This recipe is also safe for gluten-free, low-carb, and FODMAP diets. I love a recipe that’s tasty but still can fit into a variety of different diets. Check out this super flavorful and easy zoodle dish!
4 Schaendorf New York Strip Steaks
½ cup soy sauce
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
¼ cup olive oil
1 lime, juiced and zested
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon Kosher salt, additional to taste
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
2 red bell pepper
4 zucchini, spiralized into zoodles
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup of roasted peanuts, roughly chopped
Preparation (Servings: 4):
1) Preheat grill to 400-475 degrees. Gather ingredients and equipment needed.
2) Combine soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lime juice and zest, red pepper flakes in a shallow dish and place steaks in the dish to marinate for 30 minutes at room temperature. Flip over steaks as needed to coat in marinade.
3) Spiralize zoodles then prepare dressing by combining rice vinegar, sesame oil, sugar, and ½ teaspoon kosher salt. Combine zoodles and dressing and let marinate while you grill the steaks and bell peppers.
4) Remove steaks from the marinade and season with salt and pepper on each side as desired. Grill red bell peppers on all sides for approximately 3 minutes per side. Meanwhile, grill the steaks to preferred doneness.
