These weekly picnics are trying my creativity as I plan a picnic but not serve sandwiches every week. This week, I made Pioneer Woman's Beef Noodle Bowl.. I love how Pioneer Woman tells it like it is and shares her life with us. It always makes me miss living in the country - but not the working a farm part, and not the snakes and mice near (and we'll not talk about inside) my house parts. And have I mentioned I'm not much of a sandwich fan? You'll have to bear with me as I'll probably remind you every time I post a recipe from our picnics - last soccer practice is May 14th.
The cast of characters for this recipe (not pictured here, spaghetti and grilled steak):
Before I tried this recipe, I had never heard of Ponzu Sauce. I still don't know what else to use it for. But since this recipe is ALWAYS a winner for my family, Ponzu is a staple in my cabinet.
Yes, I use a fork as a whisk - because I don't like my current whisk. Someday I'll replace it.
Pour 3 Tablespoons of the marinade over your steak and put in the refrigerator.
And yes, this is a staged serving since my family ate it at the park and I don't normally take these bowls to the park. Even though I did have to take ceramic bowls because I didn't have any plastic ones available tonight.
I am not adding the recipe here because I'm not sure what Pioneer Woman's policy is on sharing her recipe. Go here for a printable version of her recipe. Her pictures are a million times better than mine too, plus she adds green onions which I was out of today.
You may have noticed that there are no THRIVE products used in making this recipe. Shelf Reliance does offer Spaghetti and Brown Sugar. I just haven't purchased those items, yet. I am also very excited to know that if I bought THRIVE FD Beef Dices and used dried garlic instead of "fresh", I could try making this as a shelf stable recipe!
