Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
12 oz. lo mein or rice noodles
12 oz. flank steak
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
3 cups broccoli, cut into small florets
1 medium carrot, shredded
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ginger, peeled & grated
1/2 cup low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1/2 cup brown sugar
a pinch of red pepper flakes
a pinch of black pepper
1 teaspoon sesame seeds for garnishing, if desired
In a large pot of boiling water, cook the noodles just until al dente. Drain and rinse under cool water. Set aside.
Cut the flank steak across the grain in 1/4 inch strips. For easier slicing, place the beef in the freezer for 15 minutes to firm up.
In a small bowl whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, brown sugar, red pepper flakes, and black pepper.
In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef in a single layer. Cook for 3-4 minutes per side or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the beef from the pan. Add the broccoli and carrots, adding more olive oil if needed, to the pan and cook until crisp-tender. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 30 seconds.
Add the noodles to the pan along with the beef. Pour the sauce on top and toss to combine. Cook until sauce is heated through. Garnish with sesame seeds, if desired, and serve.
