This recipe started as a clickbaity, Internet recipe, but I changed it to a one-dish meal that can be easily made on a backyard, propane griddle. The original recipe had too many things going on, but really it just comes down to marinated steak, and marinated noodles. If you get those prepped in the kitchen, then your job is very easy when it is time to cook.
- 1 1/4 lbs (450g) sirloin steak cut into small cubes
- 1 lb Brussels sprouts, halved
- Spaghetti, cooked al dente (or any noddles that you have)
- 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon hot sauce (we used Sriracha)
- Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- 3 Tbs olive oil
- 2 Tbs minced garlic
- 1/4 cup (60ml) beef or vegetable broth or wine if you have some open
- 1 Tbs fresh thyme leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes, optional
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
- In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the steak marinade. Add the steak and Brussels sprouts, and mix well. Marinate for 15 to 20 minutes minimum, while preparing the other ingredients.
- Cook the spaghetti al dente. When it is done, drain it and rinse with cold water to stop it from cooking any more.
- In another bowl, prepare the pasta marinade. When the spaghetti is cooked and rinsed, put it in the bowl with the pasta marinade and coat the spaghetti with the marinade.
|I added the Brussels Sprouts at the same time that I added the steak. |
If you add them a few minutes earlier, then they will get all nice and caramelized.
- You can use a large skillet, but an outdoor griddle is much easier. Apply olive oil to the griddle and turn it on high. When the griddle is hot, start the Brussel Sprouts first. Grill for two or three minutes.
- Add the steak and whatever is left of the steak marinade and cook with the Brussel Sprouts until they are brown - perhaps 3 to 5 min.
- Add the pasta last and toss it and that marinade with everything else. When it is all browned and yummy smelling, take it off and eat it - maybe 1 or 2 minutes.
- Cooking time will vary depending on your griddle.
