Happy Friday! Are you planning to give a loved one a special treat this weekend? Well, Here’s one of the many ways to bring some fun into your weekend after the clubbing, spa experience and the not so fun laundry activity.
You can make a quick and easy beef noodle stir fry to unwind after the long week with your friends or your very special person.
Here are all the ingredients and steps to follow. If you are ready, follow the method below and you won’t regret it!
For the sauce/marinade:
2/3 c. reduced-sodium soy sauce
2/3 c. beef broth
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp. minced ginger
1 tsp. cornstarch
For the stir fry:
1 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak, sliced thin
1 lb. linguini noodles
4 tsp canola oil,
divided 1 red bell pepper,
sliced thin 1 onion,
sliced thin 2 carrots,
sliced into match-sticks
2 c. broccoli florets / cauliflower
1-2 c. cabbage, shredded
sesame seeds, to taste (optional)
Combine soy sauce, broth, brown sugar, garlic, and ginger in a small mixing bowl. Place half of the mixture in a gallon-sized Ziploc bag, add sliced beef, seal (pressing as much air out as you can), and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Add cornstarch to remaining mixture in bowl and stir until smooth, cover and refrigerate until ready to use. Prepare linguini noodles according to package directions.
While noodles are cooking, heat 2 tsp. oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and add steak slices– discarding excess marinade.
Stir-fry until just browned, remove steak from skillet and set aside. Add remaining oil to the same skillet and stir-fry peppers, onion, carrots, and broccoli until onions become clear and soft. Add cabbage and beef to the skillet and cook until cabbage becomes soft.
When noodles are done cooking, drain and toss with beef/vegetable mixture, adding the reserved sauce mixture. Toss until noodles are coated in sauce.
Top with sesame seeds and serve immediately.
