Grilled Sesame Beef Skewers & Sautéed Teriyaki Kelp Noodles

Happy NYE Blogosphere!

After a fabulous and gluttonous holiday season, I started my resolution to get healthy and fit a little early. This is thanks in part to one of my exciting Christmas gifts….a Weber Grill! Thanks Bronto & BisKit!*

I’ve tried making kelp noodles before, as they are a great Paleo substitution, but I didn’t prepare them properly and they ended up tasting like plastic…yuck!

This time around, I did a little research and make sure to soak them before hand, and let them cook long enough in the sauce. The result was delicious!

Recipe for Grilled Sesame Beef Skewers & Sautéed Teriyaki Kelp Noodles

Ingredients:

10oz Grass-Fed Skirt Steak (Cut into 4 long strips) 

1 Package of Kelp Noodles (Whole Foods)

1 Packages of Shredded Vegetables

1 Cup of Mushrooms

1/4 Cup Orange Juice

1/4 Cup Coconut Aminos

2 TBSP Red Boat Fish Sauce

1 TSP Himalayan Salt (Trader Joes)

2 Scallions (Chopped)

Sesame Seeds

Instructions:

  1. Mix together the orange juice, coconut aminos, fish sauce, 1 chopped scallion and a dash of salt. Marinate the beef with half of the marinade for 15-20 minutes. Add the other half of the marinade to a wok pan.
  2. Rinse and soak the kelp noodles in water for about 10 minutes.
  3. Chop your mushrooms and add to the wok over medium heat (your sauce should already be in the pan). Meanwhile, lace the marinated pieces of beef on 4 skewer sticks and set aside while you heat up the BBQ.
  4. Once the mushrooms are almost finished cooking (about 4 minutes), add the shredded vegetables and kelp noodles and cook on medium/low heat for about 10 minutes.
  5. Next, place the skewers on the BBQ and cook for about 4 minutes on each side (or until you reach desired doneness).
  6. Add the kelp noodles to a plate, place the skewers on top, garnish with remaining scallions and enjoy!

Note: Kelp noodles are a great item to keep in your fridge since they last a long time and are easy to prepare.
