Beef Lo Mein

This recipe is definitely not the "lo mein" on the totem pole. You guys, puns and eating are my super powers. But seriously, if you're in the mood for take-out, this will hit the spot. Never had udon noodles? They can be found in the international aisle in their dried form, but my favorite udon noodles are actually found in the frozen section!
Course: Main Dish
Cuisine: Asian
Cooking Method: Stove Top
Condition: Dairy Free, Nut Free
Servings: 4 people


  • 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!
