Maybe it’s because I’m from the Midwest, or maybe it’s because the best meal I’ve ever had was a steak that literally melted in my mouth, but I have a weakness for a seasoned medium rare steak. It’s on my “what would your last meal be” list when people ask that question.
But that being said, we all know that it’s important to watch our red meat intake, so like any person or family trying to be healthier, we watch how much red meat goes into our diets. Less red meat, more seafood, more vegetables.
Of course that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have the things you like, so this Thai Steak Zucchini Noodle Bowl is the perfect way to make sure you get a great portion of vegetables and a great tasting portion of steak with a fun Asian flair!
I love Asian food and a great red curry is just so good. I know that my healthy version of Asian food isn’t authentic, but it’s a fun and healthy alternative that can satisfy that craving!
If you’re not using a spiralizer – get on it! I use The Inspiralizer and after using a couple other different products, I find that it’s the best out there (and no, I’m not associated with The Inspiralizer in any way, just giving you my honest feedback of a product I use).
Of course if you’re not sure about the whole vegetable noodle thing I understand that you may not be quite ready to make that investment. In that case you always use regular pasta noodles, or cut up your zucchini into bite-sized pieces in order to keep that healthy vegetable base.
Tell me, do you make vegetable noodles or do you cut up the veggies for these types of recipes instead?
