I happened to buy the beef on sale. Truthfully, it was the first time I had ever even seen this product in the supermarket. I figured I’d buy it and have it on a sandwich for lunch one day. But then, the plum tomatoes were on sale another day and they told me they were in love with the beef. So, we had to marry them!!
O.K., maybe that was a forced title, but I could not think what to call this dish!!
1 lb. thinly sliced beef ( as for sandwiches )
1 cup olive oil
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup honey
about 6 plum tomatoes, roasted
2 boxes frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
1 bag egg noodles ( 12 or 13 oz. )
1 or 2 tsp. garlic powder, or dried garlic slices
Make marinade: whisk together oil, vinegar, and honey.
Marinate beef in half the amount of marinade for at least 1 hour.
Meanwhile make roast tomatoes: slice tomatoes in half, length-wise; sprinkle tops with olive oil, salt and pepper, and a little sugar. Place on sheet pan and roast in 425 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes.
Take the marinated beef and saute in a wok with about 1 tsp. oil over medium heat. Remove beef and add the spinach and garlic powder. Saute the spinach for about 2 to 3 minutes. Return beef to pan and cook slowly over low flame.
Meanwhile cook the egg noodles in boiling, salted water.
Remove noodles with strainer or drain and put them in a large bowl. Add the beef and spinach and toss with leftover marinade. Place roasted tomatoes on top and serve.
