Steak isn't always on our dinner menu, but when it is, it had better be good! While small children (at least mine) usually turn their noses up at food that needs to be chewed for more than 0.5 seconds, that doesn't diminish the fact that sometimes your body just craves some red meat.
Trying new recipes is something I do when I'm feeling brave... even though when my husband sees "NEW" circled near a menu item, he cringes (too bad! She who does the cooking makes the executive menu decisions!) This week, there are three new items on the menu... OH, THE HORROR!
Regardless, last night I made these Asian Steak Bites... courtesy of Pinterest, BTW. I know, flank steak isn't cheap, but it's goooood. Marinating was quick and easy, and from pan preheat to done, the cooking only took less than 15 minutes. I'll take that kind of ease any day of the week.
Only because the word "Asian" was in the name did I assume that this meat should be served with rice... but I'm sure noodles or any starchy goodness would pair nicely. My oldest son loved it, my youngest son chewed his first piece for about 10 minutes until it lost its color and texture, but my husband and I LOVED it. It was simply fantastic. Easy and delicious... and that's why I'm recommending it to you. The hardest part was trying to find chili paste at my local grocery store!
I know you're wondering... was it spicy? No. My oldest who thinks ketchup and regular pizza sauce are spicy noticed a slight twinge of after-heat, but it wasn't enough for him to down multiple glasses of milk... so, it's not really spicy.
Enjoy, my carnivore friends!
