Sizzling Sirloin Stir-Fry, healthy style

So, because I adore the Pioneer Woman's site so much and how she chronicles the creation of her amazing dishes, I decided to cook something and take more than just the "after" picture tonight. Now, I didn't get every step on camera, because, well, I'm a newbie at this and the timing in my cooking was a little precarious- but I did get more than usual, does that work? :-) So, without further adieu:

Sizzling Sirloin Stir-Fry (healthy and gluten free version)

What you need:
1 cup La Choy soy sauce
2 tablespoons finely chopped ginger
3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
A couple dashes of chili powder (optional)
2 tablespoons sesame oil
2 thin cut sirloin steaks (to serve two people)
2 packages Shiritaki noodles (very inexpensive, can be found at Whole Foods with the tofu)
1/2 lb frozen broccoli florets

1. Start by chopping your ginger and garlic. (I threw mine as larger pieces into my little food processor to get nice, uniformly chopped pieces)

2. Stir together the soy sauce, garlic, ginger, lime juice, brown sugar and chili powder (if using).

3. Cut the steaks into bite size strips (I used kitchen shears, it's easier!) and toss the pieces in the bowl with the soy sauce marinade you just made.

4. Start water to boil on the stove.

5. Add 1 tablespoon of the sesame oil to a large pan and heat over medium-high heat. You want this to be pretty hot since you are stir frying. (When the oil is hot, I like to use a basting brush to brush the oil around and ensure the pan is coated evenly and the oil is distributed well- which allows you to use less oil as well)

6. When water is close to boiling, use tongs to drop the steak pieces into the pan. Stir frequently, the meat will be done cooking in 5 minutes or less, watch it. When it's done, remove it from the skillet and plate it for a moment.

7. Drain and rinse the Shiritaki* noodles and toss them in the boiling water. Toss in the broccoli too. Cook just 3 minutes, then drain.

8. Toss the noodles and broccoli into the pan you used for the steak and add in the last tablespoon of oil. Stir around well and cook over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes. You can add a couple dashes of soy sauce too for flavor if you like. (I like!)

9. Top the noodles and broccoli with the steak and serve!

*Made from soy, very low in calories (20 calories per serving, 0.5 grams of fat, only 1 active carb!), gluten-free. Texture is only SLIGHTLY different than regular noodles and very enjoyable!
