This Asian Steak Stir Fry with zucchini noodles recipe is so simple that it can be made in less than 30 minutes and is full of delicious sirloin steak and tons of veggies!
It’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of 30 minute meals. I’m a mother of 3 and work from home. I live for 30 minute meals. This recipe is the perfect weeknight meal using simple ingredients that are also nutrient dense. This recipe idea was inspired by my beef trip in Ohio last month. I wrote about my experience here including a delicious Ranch Steak with Onions and Mushrooms recipe.
During my trip we participated in a “chopped” competition. If you’re unfamiliar with this its based off a TV show where you compete against one another in a recipe competition. Thankfully I was with two quite talented bloggers and we came up with an Asian stir fry recipe. We used typical Asian ingredients that I was familiar with like sesame oil, rice vinegar and soy sauce, but then we added oyster sauce to the mix (honestly, I had never heard of oyster sauce until this day). This is one of the reasons these trips are so valuable to me because I get first-hand experience with such a variety of individuals who all bring different talents to the table.
So obviously I had to purchase oyster sauce soon after I returned home. I don’t remember the exact recipe we made but it’s similar to this Asian Steak Stir Fry I’ve made for you today. I decided to pair the stir fry with zucchini noodles (zoodles) instead of rice because I am not a big rice eater. When I do eat rice I choose brown rice, I’m just not a big fan. So why not add more vegetables to any already vegetable-stuffed meal with zoodles!?
Top sirloin steak is becoming my favorite steak lately to cook. I’ve learned from practice that it needs to be watched very carefully and taken off the grill or skillet sooner than you might think. When removed from the heat at the correct time, you will get nice juicy flavors similar to higher fat beef but without the fat!
Added tip: for an easier time cutting the beef, partially freeze the beef for about 30 minutes prior to slicing it.
