INGREDIENTS
  • Cooking Time: 15 minutes
  • Servings: 3-4
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • 1 1/4 lb sirloin steak (cut into cubes)
  • 4 medium zucchini (spiralized, or buy packaged zucchini noodles)
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 3 TBSP Kerrygold butter (divided)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup beef broth (or vegetable)
  • 1 TBSP minced parsley
  • 1 TBSP thyme
  • 1/2 tsp red chili pepper flakes
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • MARINADE:
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 TBSP Sriracha
  • Pepper to taste
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
DIRECTIONS
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the steak marinade (soy sauce, olive oil, Sriracha, pepper, and lemon juice) and add the steak bites. Mix well and marinate for 15-20 minutes minimum, while preparing the other ingredients.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Drain steak bites from the marinade. Keep the remaining marinade for later.
  3. Place the steak bites in the skillet in a single layer. Do not overcrowd the skillet or meat will steam, so you may have to work in batches depending on the size of your skillet. Cook steak bites for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until steak bites are golden brown. Repeat with remaining steak bites if needed,
  4. Once all the steak bites are golden brown, add 2 tablespoons butter and garlic to the skillet; cook for 1-2 minutes, stirring to coat the meat in the sauce. Remove the steak bites to a shallow plate and set aside.
  5. In the same skillet, add butter, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, beef broth, and remaining marinade juices. Bring to a simmer and allow to reduce for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly.
  6. Add the spiralized zucchini noodles and toss for 2-3 minutes to cook. Stir in the parsley and thyme, then allow the cooking juices to reduce for one minute if the zucchini noodles render too much water. Push the zucchini noodles to the side, add the steak bites back to the pan, and reheat for another minute. Serve immediately.
