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.

MY OTHER RECIPES

Beef Lo Mein

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!!

    I hope you don’t mind a smidgen of criticism, but I have a question about your noodle choice. Spaghetti noodles? Why not actual lo mein noodles? They will be softer and much better at absorbing your sauce flavors! Also, if you cut your soy sauce in half, and add a slurry of cornstarch and cold water to your sauce, when you heat everything together you will have a nice thick and sticky sauce that’ll coat everything nicely! Best!

      Thank you for sharing. I just have tons of spaghetti noodles & I like to change up recipes, so they aren’t like others. But, lo mein noodles are great 🙂
