Orange Beef with Zoodles Meal Prep

Orange Beef Zoodles is an easy one-pan meal that’s perfect for lunch or busy weeknights. Tender seared steak strips are cooked in a flavorful Asian sauce and served with sweet and tangy mandarin oranges and zucchini noodles. This easy, low carb orange beef & zoodles dish comes together quickly and can be made ahead of time for your weekly meal prep.

There are so many reasons to love this lightened-up Asian classic—it’s low carb, prepped in under 20 minutes, and has two flavorful and healthy meal prep servings. It’s like your favorite Asian takeout without the extra carbs and heavy sauces 

If the thought of making zoodles intimidates you, the GoodCook Countertop Spiralizer is the easiest way to transform zucchini into perfect, spirally zoodles in no time. With three blades to choose from, you can switch blade thickness and even spiralize sweet potatoes, butternut squash, carrots or cucumbers. They’re all tasty substitutes for zoodles and make this recipe deliciously low-carb.  

Bring your orange beef & zoodles to work in a GoodCook Rectangular Meal Prep Container. To get started, you’ll need one or two GoodCook Touch Mixing Bowls for mixing up the sauces. We love these bowls for prepping and mixing, and they’re so easy to clean.

Get the steak sliced with a sharp and sturdy GoodCook Touch Carbon Steel Chef’s Knife. Once all the ingredients are prepped, they come together in a GoodCook Smart Choice Fry Pan. It has an easy to clean nonstick interior and it’s roomy enough for this whole meal. Grab your chopsticks for this irresistible Asian delight!  

Storing Extra Zoodles

  • Spiralize as much zucchini as you think you’ll need for a week. Don’t cook what you plan to store.
  • To store in the fridge, use high-quality containers with lids, like these GoodCook Melamine Nesting Bowl Set With Lids.
  • Store zucchini noodles for up to 5 days in the fridge.
  • To cook, sauté zoodles in a GoodCook Smart Choice Fry Pan in olive oil for 2-3 minutes, or microwave, covered, for about 2 minutes.
