Thai Beef w/ Rice

300 calories; $3.50 / serving

Several years ago, I made this recipe for a Halloween potluck at work. They told me there needed to be something scary about it in order to be a part of the “best halloween dish” contest. On the spot, I named the dish “werewolf jerky”. The dish won, and we still call it “werewolf jerky” to this day. The end.

  • 1/4 cup toasted sesame oil
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp each of finely chopped ginger, garlic, cilantro and ground peanuts
  • 2 scallions
  • 1 Tbsp each of sugar, lime juice and chili powder
  • 1/4 cup beef broth
  • 2 pounds thin sliced steak
  • Salt/pepper
  • White Rice, Cooked
  • Chopped Green Onions for Garnish

In a bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, cilantro, peanuts, scallions, sugar, lime juice, chili powder, and beef broth; transfer to a durable plastic bag. Add the steak to the bag and turn to coat. Seal and marinate for 30 minutes.

Light a grill or heat a skillet. Grill over high heat until medium-rare, 5 minutes. Transfer the steak to a board and let rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice across the grain. Serve over white rice; garnish with chopped green onions.
