Grass-Fed Sirloin with Kelp Noodle Stir-Fry

Grass-Fed Sirloin with Kelp Noodle Stir-Fry is a deliciously perfect match made in the skillet. It was created after I had the chance to visit Homegrown Meats in La Jolla, CA and peruse their selection of awesome, locally-grown and grass-fed beef.

Along with some homemade duck sausages, chorizo, veal liver, and a flank steak, a crazy-delicious looking “baseball-cut” sirloin steak made it into my bag. Even though I’ve had grass-fed steaks before (mostly from Whole Foods), I have to say…this steak was far and above superior. Simply put…the best steak I’ve ever eaten. Amazingly, I paid about $11/lb compared to the $9/lb that our local supermarket charges for grain-fed New York Strip.

I pan-seared it and finished it in the oven to a nice medium/medium-rare and paired it with a simple kelp noodle stir-fry. Bottom line: seek out a local butcher in your area. Invest in some nice quality grass-fed beef (click here for a great post about the advantages of grass-fed) and simply enjoy.

Ingredients

  • For the Steak
  • 8 oz Grass-fed sirloin steak
  • Salt and pepper
  • Trader Joe’s South American Smoke Seasoning or if not available, use powdered smoked paprika or seasoning of choice
  • For the Kelp Noodles
  • 1 package kelp “noodles” rinsed (found at Whole Foods or other health-food store)
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tbsp coconut aminos
  • Handful of fresh chopped chives or green onion
  • Coconut oil
  • Sesame oil for garnish
  • Sriracha or other hot sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Remove steak from refrigerator at least 15 minutes prior to cooking so it warms up before cooking. Grill or sear/bake the steak.
  3. For sear/bake: Heat a medium-sized cast iron skillet on high heat. Season steak and sear both sides for 3-4 minutes until a nice brown crust forms. Transfer skillet to the oven and bake for approximately another 8 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on your desired done-ness and oven strength. Allow meat to rest for at least 5 min before slicing.
  4. In the same skillet you cooked the steak: heat coconut oil. Sauté noodles until they soften (~5 min).
  5. Add in garlic, chives, and coconut aminos and sauté 30 more seconds.
  6. Remove from heat and garnish with a drizzle of sesame oil.
  7. Serve steak slices over noodles and top with sriracha or hot sauce if desired.

  1. Have you tried kelp noodles with fermented kimchi? I love steak, fried egg, and fermented kimchi. Instead of fried rice, I tried cauliflower rice, it was okay but I felt something was missing.
