"I often start with the sauce when developing a recipe," says Sarah Berndt, R.D., of the George Foreman Grills Weight-Loss Challenge. "This one is nutrient-dense, made from ingredients that people often have on hand, and can be enjoyed hot or cold."
1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 tablespoon rice vinegar
1/2 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon hot sauce
4 ounces lean steak
1 teaspoon canola oil
1/2 cup cooked whole-grain spaghetti
1 cup cooked fresh or frozen stir-fry vegetables (such as peppers, snap peas, mushrooms, or onions)
Preheat indoor or outdoor grill. (If you don't have one, cook steak in a nonstick pan.) Whisk together soy sauce, rice vinegar, lime juice, brown sugar, and hot sauce in a small bowl. Rub steak with oil and grill 6 to 8 minutes. Slice meat. Toss noodles with vegetables, sauce, and grilled steak in a medium-sized bowl. Top with cilantro to taste.
