Sweet and Spicy Beef Noodle Bowl

Fabulous summer dinner idea!

I like this because of the colour and also the fact that it is a light meal for those hot summer days. A combination of salad and rice noodles with flavourful beef. This recipe is so versatile as well, making it vegetarian by using tofu or egg, changing the protein to chicken or shrimp. Also, vegetables can be any leftovers you have in your fridge!

Thinly slice a 1lb flank steak and marinate for approximately 5 hours. Give or take, depending on your schedule… or do it overnight!

Marinade:

3 tablespoons of fish sauce
2 tablespoons of lime juice
grated thumb of ginger
2 minced garlic cloves
salt
pepper
2 tablespoons of brown sugar

Chop up a cucumber, lettuce, green onions, and shred 2 carrots and lemon basil (or regular basil)

Boil the rice noodles and sear the meat so it is cooked to your liking (we like rare!)

Mix together:

1 tablespoon of fish sauce
Lime juice of one lime
1 tablespoon of honey
chili flakes
1 tsp of garlic powder

Pour over the noodles and put everything else over the noodles after that.

Done! Enjoy!
