Beefy Italian Pasta Bowl Stir-Fry
:) Stir-Fry Been Very Very Good to me!

This is an old saying that a very good friend of mine and I used
to use years ago as we were losing a lot of weight yet still
maintained that nice feeling of being pleasantly stuffed.
We made many versions of stir fry, mostly Asian but sometimes
just meats and cabbage or other veggies with chicken, shrimps etc.

Today's versions of stir-fry have the added joy of using Miracle Noodles, rice or Shirataki tofu noodles. I have never enjoyed the
Shirataki spaghetti as an Italian dish to replace my desire for big
bowls of pasta. Today we harvested a nice couple baskets of produce
from our garden and I made a wonderful Italian pasta bowl.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Beefy Italian Pasta Bowl Stir Fry
Serves 2 large bowls.
*Marinated and BBQ grilled 1 large beef rib eye steak
2 Bag of Shirataki Spaghetti
2 tbs. Extra virgin olive oil
4 ripe tomatoes peeled and quartered
1 medium red onion, sliced
3-4 fresh garlic, minced
1 c. fresh green beans, julienned
Chicken broth as needed
1/2 large spaghetti squash(cooked, drained)
Fresh basil leaves (4 or 5)
Salt, coarse pepper
Place oil in large skillet, get it hot and add the green beans,
stir fry for about 2-3 minutes, add the red onion and fry a couple
minutes (you want a crunch on the onion at the end)
Add garlic and fry a minute, then tomatoes and basil leaves,
and spaghetti squash. Keep it cooking. You will see it becoming a
thick sauce. Now add the seasonings. Taste. I used a dab of ss.

*Steak. Use any meat that you like. I pounded the steak and
used Montreal steak seasoning and lots of black pepper. Let it
sit overnight in a bag. Threw it on the BBQ and cooked it med. rare.
Let it stand while I was stir frying. Cut it into strips and tossed it
in the stir fry for a few minutes.

How to do the Shirataki spaghetti:
Rinse the pasta very well, drain. Have it in a sieve over a pan.
Squeeze the juice of one lemon over all. Toss well. Drain and
place it into a large Pyrex, micro-safe bowl, add 1 tsp. of "Better
than Bouillon" chicken or beef and toss it. Nuke it for 2 minutes
on high. Drain before placing in bowls.

Divide the noodles into two large bowls, top with stir-fry and
steak strips. Pass the Parmesano Reggiano.

Note: Keeping the red onions on the crunchy side is very delicious.

OMyGoodness that sounds lovely Barbo.

Are you enjoying your summer garden? I am.

Yes on all counts
This is one of our best gardens in several years. We are actually growing
tomatoes that taste like the old days. We've had several years where no
one in our general area got good ones. If it gets a bit hotter our jalapenos
will come on strong. I have not grown them for we get them cheap.
Just decided to give them a try. I staggered the plantings on green beans
and cucumbers. We are going into our second planting.
The peaches are all off the tree and into the freezer, same with the boysenberries, oranges are finished, but Meyer lemons are carrying on.

It is wonderful to reap the harvest of good organic veggies.
How are yours growing?

love and hugs.
