Make your last Wednesday night meal of 2009 a "clean" one: Beef Satay on Rice Noodles. In this case, "clean" means a dish that is made with whole, unprocessed and unrefined foods and no additives. It also signals a meal that is naturally balanced, without excessive amounts of saturated fat and calories.
The recipe comes from Diane Welland's "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Eating Clean" (Alpha, 2009).
NOTE: If you can't find fermented black bean paste, substitute by whisking together a mixture of 2 tablespoons all-natural creamy peanut butter and 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce. If it is too thick, add up to 1 tablespoon water.
The recipe serves 4 to 6.
1 medium clove garlic
1/2 large jalapeño pepper
1 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons fermented black bean paste (may substitute; see headnote)
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
12 ounces fresh or frozen snow peas
Leaves from 1 small bunch cilantro
2-inch piece ginger root
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped scallions (from the salad bar), or 9 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
3/4 cup orange juice
12 ounces beef tenderloin or strip steak
8 ounces (1 box) thin rice stick noodles
3 cups shredded carrots (from the salad bar)
1/4 cup roasted unsalted peanuts, chopped
