Beef Chow Mein

Beef chow mein is the perfect quick meal for a busy day. It is a great dish for using whatever vegetables you have leftover in the fridge. I wanted to use up cabbage and carrots in my fridge so that is what I added but feel free to substitute with your favorite vegetables.

Beef Chow Mein


1 package dried chow mein noodles

1 Tablespoon sesame oil

1 lb beef flank steak, sirloin etc, sliced

3 Tablespoons soy sauce

1 Tablespoon rice wine

1 Tablespoon sesame oil

1 Tablespoon brown sugar or sugar

1 Tablespoon cornstarch

2 Tablespoons vegetable or canola oil

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 inch ginger, minced or grated

1-2 cups cabbage, thinly sliced

½ cup carrots, shredded

Vegetable or canola oil

3 Tablespoons oyster sauce

Garnish: green onions


Bring salted water to boil and cook noodles according to package directions. Drain and coat with 1 Tablespoon with sesame oil to prevent noodles from sticking and set aside.

Cut beef into thin strips. In a bowl mix together soy sauce, rice wine, sesame oil, sugar, and cornstarch. Add steak and marinate while you cut and prep your ingredients.

Heat oil in a wok or large frying pan. Stir fry beef until browned. Remove from heat and set aside.

Add garlic and ginger and stir fry for a couple of minutes. Add cabbage and carrots and stir fry for a few minutes until vegetables are tender. Add cooked noodles, beef and oyster sauce and toss to combine.

Garnish with green onions.
