In a bowl, combine the ingredients for the marinade and add the steak cubes in a Ziploc bag or tight lidded Tupperware type container. Mix well and marinate 30 minutes minimum or even better overnight.
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Drain steak from the marinade. Keep the remaining marinade for later as it will all be used.
Place the steak in the skillet spaced apart in a single layer. Do not overcrowd the skillet or meat won’t get the heat around it and caramelize and it will be steam cooked. You may have to work in two batches depending on the size of your skillet. Cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally until steak bites are golden brown.
Add the butter and garlic to the skillet with the meat and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir to cover the meat in the sauce. Remove to a plate and set close aside.
In the same skillet, add butter and remaining marinade juices. Scrape skillet while heating to deglaze any caramelized steak bits.
Add the zucchini noodles and toss for two to three minutes till tender. If the zucchini releases too much water, push zucchini to the side and allow the juices to reduce for one minute. Add the steak bites back to the pan to reheat and toss everything together for another minute. Remove everything from hot pan and serve immediately.
You can also use tenderloin, rib eye, flank or strip steak if you like.Grey Poupon Savory Honey Mustard has 5 mg sodium per teaspoon (excellent)Save time by buying 12 oz package of veggie spirals zucchini
