Beef Lo Mein
- 10 oz udon noodles
- 2 tsp vegetable oil or avocado oil
- 1 bell pepper red, sliced into strips
- 1 cup carrot chopped
- 1 cup broccoli (cut into small chunks)
- 1 bunch green onion chopped separating the white and the green sections
- 2 cups green beans cut into bite sized pieces
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 lb beef sirloin, thinly sliced
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/4 cup soy sauce low sodium
- 2 tbsp oyster sauce
- Bring a pot of water to boil. Add noodles and cook until tender. Set aside. Tip: Pour a little oil over the noodles and mix well to prevent from sticking.
- Heat a wok, or large pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tsp vegetable oil and cook red pepper, carrots, broccoli, white part of the green onions, and green beans until tender and browned. Season with salt and pepper and remove this vegetable mix from the pan.
- Add another teaspoon of vegetable oil to the now empty pan and add the beef. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until beef is no longer pink and has begun to brown.
- While the beef cooks, mix garlic powder, ginger, brown sugar, soy sauce and oyster sauce in a bowl, set aside.
- Add vegetables back into the pan with the beef, along with noodles. Mix well. Add soy sauce mixture and cook for 2-3 minutes until heated through. Garnish with the green part of green onions. Enjoy!
