BEEF LO MEIN

In Dinner 259 views

This beef lo mein is stir fried steak and vegetables tossed with egg noodles in a savory sauce. A remake of the take out favorite that tastes even better than what you would get at a restaurant!

I love to recreate some of my family’s favorite Chinese dishes at home including General Tso’s chicken, fried wontons and this easy and totally delicious lo mein.

Whenever we order from our local Chinese restaurant, my family requests beef lo mein. I decided it was time to learn to make this classic recipe at home, and it’s actually quite easy to prepare! This lo mein works great as a main course, or can be served alongside other Chinese dishes for a complete meal.

HOW DO YOU MAKE BEEF LO MEIN?

The first step is to make a simple marinade for thinly sliced flank steak. Let the meat sit in the marinade for at least 10 minutes, then transfer the steak to a hot pan. Cook the meat until browned, then remove the steak and place onions, carrots, celery and cabbage in the pan. Cook the veggies until they’re just softened. Add the noodles and steak to the pan and toss everything together.

While the steak and veggies are cooking, in a separate bowl make the sauce by whisking together beef broth, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sesame oil and cornstarch. Pour the sauce in the pan with the beef, noodles and veggies and bring the sauce to a simmer until thickened. Once the sauce is thickened, add a sprinkling of green onions and enjoy!
