Spicy Low Carb Beef Noodle Stir Fry November 06 2013 7 Comments

Spicy Low Carb Beef Noodle Stir Fry
Serves 4
(created by Holly McNeal of Kitschy Chic Spices)
8 oz thin sliced beef with good marbling (or use chicken, pork or shrimp)
1/2 cup thin sliced red bell pepper
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1/2 cup sliced green onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup halved red & yellow cherry tomatoes
1/2 cup shredded carrot
1/2 cup chopped jalapeño pepper
1 tablespoon grated garlic
1/2 cup fish sauce 
3 tablespoons sweet chili sauce  
3 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons sesame or chili oil  
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
Holly is the owner of Kitschy Chic Spices and created this out-of-this-world noodle stir fry jazzed up with her best quality Kitschy Chic Tango Mango Habanero Seasoning (no cheap fillers!)
She says about her recipe, “You really can add anything you want. I look in the crisper and just start adding vegetables like zucchini, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, etc. Rinse the noodles well and boil 1 minute. Drain well again and let sit.
Make this part of the dressing ahead of time for drizzling on top:  1 tablespoon lime juice, sweet chili sauce, dash of soy sauce, 1 tablespoon honey, 1 tablespoon fish sauce and 2 teaspoons Tango Mango Habanero Seasoning.  Mix well and set aside. 
Slice meat into strips remembering that all the meat will shrink (we used Porterhouse steak).  Heat sesame or chili oil in a nonstick wok until hot. Stir fry beef until medium rare.  Transfer beef to a plate.  Add veggies to wok and cook for about 1-2 minute stirring the whole time.
Add meat back to the wok with the noodles, basil and cilantro.  Stir while cooking for 1-2 minutes. It’s important not to overcook the veggies or they will lose crunch, color and flavor. Turn off wok.  Scoop into bowls or plates, top with fresh basil, cilantro and lime wedges.  Drizzle with dressing you made up in the beginning.  Serve and enjoy.”
Tip:  Adjust the sauce ingredient quantity to your personal preference.
