Shop for this week's Dinner in Minutes

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 jalapeƱo 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
