I really love how multi-faceted this marinade is. I used it earlier in the week for flank steak, and then I reused it for this tri-tip. While my tri-tip was grilling, I cooked my miracle noodles and after draining them, I added the marinade for the remainder of the time. If you haven’t tried Miracle Noodles, it is definitely worth doing if you give it a shot with Asian inspired dishes. The texture works well in those recipes, but I would avoid using them in place of spaghetti noodles (no cream sauces or marinara).
- 1/2 cup olive or avocado oil
- 1 cup soy sauce
- 4 cloves garlic crushed
- 2 Tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 1 Tbsp sesame seeds
- 0.75 cup, chopped fresh cilantro
- 1/3 cup whole green onion, chopped
- 2 Tbsp fresh ginger, minced
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2-3 lbs beef or chicken
- 2 bags Miracle Noodles
In a Ziploc bag, combine all ingredients. Add your choice of protein (beef or chicken work perfectly). Marinate for 4 hours (minimum). Cook according to desired method.
In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil. Rinse the miracle noodles. While meat is cooking, boil noodles for 10-15 minutes (you cannot overcook them). Drain and return noodles to the pan. Add remaining marinade to the noodles and simmer for 10-15 (again, you cannot overcook them). Using tongs, remove noodles and plate them. Top with your meat and enjoy!
