Boy oh boy did I ever miss my zoodles.  Would you believe the zucchini was not on the 6 week challenge veggie list of ingredients?  I was mortified at the thought of no zucchini during this challenge.  How dare they exclude the zucchini.Try this unbelievably easy Asian Beef with Zoodles dish that the whole family will love!

I had just purchased the spiralizer attachment for my Kitchen Aid mixer and the whole time I was on that challenge, I couldn’t use it.  It sat on my counter waiting to be utilized.

Of course, what you see in this dish is all of my favorite ingredients packed into one delicious bowl of goodness.  Beef, bok choy and zucchini.

Oh the joys of non diethood.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
