4 servings


  • 4 ounces dried multigrain high-protein spaghetti or rice noodles

  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 ½ tablespoons lime juice

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil

  • 1 tablespoon honey

  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • 12 ounces beef flank steak, trimmed and cut diagonally into thin bite-size strips

  • 1 cup chopped English cucumber

  • 1 cup shredded red cabbage

  • ½ cup thin bite-size strips carrot or packaged fresh julienned carrots

  • 2 tablespoons shredded fresh basil

  • Lime wedges


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting any salt; drain. Return to pan; cover and keep warm.

  2. Meanwhile, for sauce, in a small bowl whisk together the next 10 ingredients (through crushed red pepper).

  3. Coat a 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high. Add meat, half at a time, and cook 1 to 2 minutes or just until browned. Remove from skillet.

  4. Reduce heat to medium. Add 1/4 cup of the sauce to skillet; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until liquid is nearly evaporated, stirring to scrape up crusty brown bits. Return meat with any juices; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes more or until heated through.

  5. Divide pasta among individual bowls and drizzle with remaining sauce. Top with meat, cucumber, cabbage and carrot and sprinkle with basil. Top with additional basil, if desired, and serve with lime wedges.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
