Sounds like a great recipe…For the cut of meat (I am a former butcher..grew up in the business), I would suggest 1 1/4 inch Rib Eyes from Costco (or Angus beef from anywhere else) with decent marble (fat) strung through it. On a Hot Webber grill, (fired with real charcoal), and covered, 3 1/2 minutes on each side gives you the perfect medium rare result. Don't forget to let the steak sit for a number of minutes before slicing it into Julienne strips to serve to preserve the "juiciness".

Excellent job on the carbs and this recipe. Just a suggestion 1) organic, grass fed beef or Amish* beef; 2) fresh ginger instead of powdered (sorry, I'm a total ginger lover, cut off 1/8" slices and julienne, then dice—yum.) and 3) real butter or Amish butter, has more nutrients than margarine and btw, most margarines are GMO and not GMO good, but GMO that can withstand heavy pesticide and herbicide applications, plus making some serious toxins itself. Think agent orange—but don't get me off topic; Ginger is good for joints, arthritis, bursitis and bones, you can put those yummy steaks on the grill.
Congrats on winning. Recipe sounds tremendous.
