Monday Munchies – Lemon Butter Steak with Zucchini Noodles

Hello all! I'm back from a refreshing time away in Florida. Now that I'm back, I would like to share a recipe with you that makes my mouth water just thinking about it.

I love steak! I don't eat it often because buying organic, grass-fed steak can be pretty pricey, but man-oh-man is it delicious! Today, I am sharing an incredible recipe that combines just a few of my favorite things; zucchini, butter, garlic, and of course, steak. I hope you enjoy!

Lemon Butter Steak with Zucchini Noodles

Recipe courtesy of Eat Well 101


  • 1 1/2 lb flank steak, sliced against the grain

  • 4 medium zucchini

  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil

  • 4 garlic cloves, smashed and minced

  • 2 Tablespoons organic butter

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced and zest

  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or bone broth

  • 1/4 cup parsley, chopped

  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1/3 cup liquid aminos or low-sodium, gluten-free soy sauce

  • 1/2 lemon, juiced

  • 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 1 Tablespoon Sriracha sauce (optional)


  • Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a container or Ziploc bag. Add the strips of steak and seal. Allow the steak to marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to one hour.

  • While you wait, wash and trim the ends of the zucchini. Using a spiralizer, make the zucchini noodles and set aside.

  • Bring the steak to room temperature and heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Reserve the juices of the marinade for later. Add the steak in one layer and season with salt and pepper. Cook for one minute without stirring.

  • Add the minced garlic, then stir the steak for another minute or two to cook the other side. Remove from the skillet and set aside on a plate.

  • In the same skillet, add the butter, lemon juice and zest, red pepper flakes, chicken broth, and remaining marinade juices. Bring to a simmer and allow to reduce for 2-3 minutes, stirring regularly.

  • Stir in the parsley, then add the zucchini noodles and toss for 2-3 minutes. Allow the cooking juices to reduce for 1 minute if the zucchini renders too much water. Add the steak back to the pan and stir for another minute. Serve immediately.

Doesn't that sound amazing?!
