2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Pickle the radishes and carrots

  • Thinly slice the radishes.

In a medium bowl, combine the radishes, carrots, and Asian quick-pickle brine. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep the “zoodles” and cabbage

  • Lay the zucchini flat. Trim and discard the round end. Holding the stem end secure, using a peeler, shave the zucchini lengthwise into thin ribbons. Pat dry with a paper towel.
  • Cut away any core from the cabbage; thinly slice the cabbage.


Prep and cook the steak

  • Cut a small corner from the steak packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the steak and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes. Stir in the lemongrass paste and cook until the steak is cooked to the desired doneness, 1 to 2 minutes for medium. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the “zoodles” and cabbage to individual bowls. Using a slotted spoon, remove the pickled vegetables from the brine, add as many as you like, and top with the steak. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve any remaining pickled vegetables on the side.
