Ingredients

  • 8 oz Lo Mein Noodles (Prepare as directed)
  • 1 lb. ribeye steak cut into thin strips
  • 2 tbsp. light tasting olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 8 oz. mushroom sliced
  • 3/4 small red bell pepper sliced
  • 2 cups steamed broccoli florets small florets, or asparagus
  • 1 cup carrots matchstick
  • 2 tbsps. olive oil light tasting
  • 1 small onion julienned
  • Sliced Green onions or scallions for garnishing
  • Sesame seeds for garnishing

MARINADE MIXTURE

  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • ¼ cup soy sauce dark preferred, and low sodium
  • ¼ cup beef broth low sodium or pasta water
  • 1 tsp. corn starch
  • 2 tbsps. brown sugar
  • ½½ tsp. black pepper
  • ¾ tsp. rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil or any other oil
  • 1 tsp. fresh ginger grated
  • 1 tbsp. sriracha sauce optional if you want a spicy kick

Instructions

  • Cook Lo Mein Noodles as directed on the packaging. Steam broccoli over cooking pasta.
  • Prepare the veggies and cut the steak into small thin strips.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the marinade ingredients.
  • In a frying pan or wok over medium-high heat, add 1 tbsp. of light tasting olive. Sauté the onions, carrots and bell pepper until tender and then set aside. Do not over cook.
  • In the same pan, add 1 more tbsp. of light tasting olive oil. Lay the beef strips flat and apart to cook evenly, flipping occasionally until they obtain a nice brown color. Do not over crowed. Cook in batches.
  • Add in the cooked veggies, cooked noodles, broccoli florets and pour over the marinade mixture. Mix together to coat well.
  • Continue to cook the noodles together with the veggies for 2-3 more minutes until the sauce thickens up.
  • Remove from heat and garnish with some freshly sliced scallions or green onions and sesame seeds.

Notes

  • We mostly eat ribeye steaks because they are a lot more tender and juicier than most of the other cuts. I know they are not lean, but we like it.
  • Make sure to have all your ingredients prepped before you fire up the pan/wok, things move fast!
  • Cook your noodles exactly according to the package or you will end up with over cooked noodles and you don't want that.
  • Lay your beef strips little apart from each other so they can cook evenly, flipping occasionally to cook the other side until you obtain a nice brown color.
  • Use low sodium soy sauce, to control the salt level.
  • Add some crushed red pepper flakes for a kick of heat.
  • Slice your veggies and meat into thin slices, this gives you a good amount of surface area, allowing for quick and even cooking.
