Hearty and delicious Beef Lo Mein – this simple dinner recipe has so much flavor and is filled with chunks of beef, carrots and broccoli!
Beef Stir Fry
You know when you’re first married and you’re trying to figure things out? Like how to run a household… or an oven?! Many of you may not have felt that way, but I was pretty young and came straight from home, so there was a definite learning curve for me. We spent the first year of our marriage eating noodles and Freschetta pizza (good times!) Since one meal, over and over, can get pretty old, we had to be creative with how we made our noodles, which is how we ended up making something similar to today’s recipe for Beef Lo Mein (aka Beef Stir Fry).
We have always loved the combo of beef and noodles. In fact, when we were first married, we’d make Ramen noodles, drained and then stir fried in Worcestershire sauce. Sounds gross, but it was a favorite. Now, we make this Beef Lo Mein (from Mom’s Dish) which is even better with it’s noodles and veggies. We never go too crazy on the veggies but love adding broccoli and carrots.
Other great veggies to add include peppers, snow peas and mushrooms. Our kids are pretty picky though, so we usually keep the veggies more simple. 😉
This Beef Lo Mein wasn’t difficult to put together and certainly wasn’t difficult to scarf down! The flavor was just simple enough to catch the interest of our kids and tasty enough for us adults to want seconds. Another keeper dinner recipe for the monthly menu!!
