Ingredients

For the sauce

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ginger chopped
  • 1 teaspoon sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

For the lo mein noodles

  • 8 oz lo mein noodles
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • ¾ cup broccoli cut into florets
  • 2 whole carrots cut into thin strips
  • 1 medium red bell pepper cut into thin strips
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons green onions chopped

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the ingredients for the sauce; soy sauce, brown sugar, ginger, sriracha, and sesame oil. Set aside.
  • Cook the lo mein noodles according to the package instructions and set them aside.
  • Heat oil over a large skillet on medium heat. Add the garlic, broccoli, carrots, and bell peppers. Saute the veggies for 3-5 minutes.
  • Stir in the cooked noodles along with the sauce, salt, and pepper. Toss the noodles until well combined for 2-3 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the sesame seeds and green onions and serve the noodles while it's still warm.

Notes

  • Cook the noodles according to the package and set them aside before you stir fry the veggies. 
  • Prepare the sauce while the noodles cook. 
  • Adjust the amount of sriracha to make the sauce mild or spicy.
  • Chop your veggies into similar size pieces, so they cook evenly. 
  • Don’t overcook the veggies. They should be crisp-tender. 
  • Add the garlic last when stir-frying the vegetables so it doesn’t burn. 
  • Use two wooden spoons to toss everything together in the pan. 
  • Don’t skip the garnish.
  • Serve immediately.
