Beef-Broccoli Lo Mein

From Cooking Light
Serves 6


4 cups hot cooked spaghetti (about 8 ounces uncooked pasta)
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 tablespoon peanut oil
(I substituted with sesame oil)
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

4 garlic cloves, minced

3 cups chopped broccoli

1 1/2 cups vertically sliced onion

1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed and cut across the grain into long, thin strips

3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon oyster sauce
(I omitted)
1 tablespoon chile paste with garlic
(I omitted)


Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain. Combine pasta and sesame oil, tossing well to coat.

While pasta cooks, heat peanut oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ginger and garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add broccoli and onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add steak, and sauté 5 minutes or until done. Add pasta mixture, soy sauce, and remaining ingredients; cook 1 minute or until lo mein is thoroughly heated, stirring constantly.

****I need to figure out a way to cook the meat beforehand so that it's more tender, cooking it with the broccoli toughened it up a little too much for my liken.****
