Ingredients

Fresh Ingredients

  • 4 zucchini (should yield about 6 cups of spiralized zoodles)
  • 2 carrots (use a spiralizer or vegetable peeler to make carrot ribbons)
  • ¼ cup scallions (chopped)
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 6 eggs (while preparing the rest of the dish - bring a pot of water to boil. add the eggs en cook for 8 minutes exactly. See recipe notes)
  • ¾ lb beef (you choice. steak steak with good marbelling is preferred.)

For The Broth:

  • 3 cups water (you can also use beef or vegetable stock for more depth of flavor).
  • ¼ cup coconut aminos (you can also use soy sauce)
  • 3 tablespoon mirrin
  • 2 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger (minced)

For Serving:

  • to taste Sriracha
  • to taste fresh cilantro (roughly chopped)

Instructions

  • Mix all the ingredients for the broth in a pot and bring to a boil.
  • While waiting for the broth to boil, heat up a stainless steel or cast iron pan. Then cook the beef to medium rare. For a ½” steak, that would be about 4 minutes per side. When done, remove from the pan, cover and set aside.
  • Now, if the broth is boiling - add the carrot ribbons, bean sprouts and scallions to broth. Let it simmer until the carrots are done to your preference - about 5 minutes.
  • Finally, add the zucchini noodles and continue to simmer for another 2 minutes.
  • When you’re ready to serve, slice the beef thinly.
  • Now, dish up the vegetables and broth. Top with the beef, boiled egg and fresh cilantro. Add a drizzle of Sriracha if you like it!

Notes
