Autumn Beef and Vegetable Lo Mein

  • 16 oz. spaghetti noodles, cooked according to the package directions
  • 1 lb. tenderized round steak, sliced into thin strips
  • 1 T. fresh garlic paste
  • 1 T. fresh ginger paste
  • 1 T. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 small head broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small red onion, peeled and sliced into thin wedges
  • 1 yellow pepper, seeded and sliced into strips
  • ¼-⅓ c. teriyaki sauce (choose your favorite variety)

Prepare the pasta according to the package directions. While the water is coming to a boil and pasta is simmering, prepare the rest of the dish.

Rub the steak strips thoroughly with the garlic and ginger paste. Set aside.

Bring the toasted sesame oil to medium-high heat in a nonstick skillet. Add the steak strips to the skillet as soon as you smell the distinctive nutty aroma of the oil as it heats. Stir-fry for 5 minutes or until the steak is browned. Add the broccoli, onion, and pepper and stir-fry an additional 3 minutes or until the vegetables are crisp-tender.

Using a pair of tongs, lift the cooked pasta from the water and transfer it in batches to the skillet with the steak and vegetables in it. When all of the pasta has been moved to the skillet, add the teriyaki sauce of your choice and toss well to coat. Cook for a minute longer to warm throughout and serve hot.
