BEEF LO MEIN

I came up with this recipe when I saw lo mein noodles in my local Weis supermarket.  With trial and error, I came up with a fantastic sauce.  I gave my boss and his wife a bowl to try and they said it was really good. The loved the sauce.  I love it too and I hope you do! Most recipes call for those expensive cuts of meats that most of us can’t afford or don’t want to pay that price like “flank” and “skirt” steaks.  I use thin cut sirloin tips and slice the pieces into thin strips.  Just as good, much cheaper and you get more for the $! My recipe feeds 6 but feel free to cut it in half or thirds.

INGREDIENTS:

16 oz. lo mein noodles

2 bags Steamfresh broccoli florets

4 tbsp olive oil

1 1/4 lb to 1 1/2 lb. thin sliced sirloin tip steak

Steam your broccoli in the microwave for 3 minutes less than stated. Set aside.

While the noodles are cooking, add 2 tbsp olive oil to a large fry pan.  When the pan is hot, add your beef and saute approximately 2 minutes per side.  Remove from pan and set aside. Remove the liquid in the pan.

Put the pan back on the burner and add 1 tbsp olive oil.  Stir fry your carrot sticks until starting to soften.

Add the garlic and a dash of olive oil and saute 1 minute.

Add the broccoli florets and stir fry about 1 minute, mixing the vegetables as they cook.

Add the meat back in.
