This is an easy beef stir fry meal to make for a family. It takes hardly any time to make, and my family just devours it.
- 6 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil (or peanut oil)
- 4 tablespoons of honey
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 cup carrot shreds (or baby carrots chopped)
- 1 cup mushrooms sliced
- 4 zucchinis, sliced
- 1 cup fresh broccoli florets, cut small
- 1.5 lbs thin steaks, cut into small pieces
- 16 oz package of angel hair pasta (or two 8 oz packages of chinese noodles)
- In a gallon-size zipper bag, combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons of honey, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon minced garlic.
- Slice up the zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli, and steak.
- Add the zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, broccoli, and steak to the zipper bag. Seal it up and shake to coat.
- Heat up a large skillet on high with a tablespoon of olive oil.
- While that’s heating up, cook the angel hair pasta according to instructions.
- Once the skillet is hot, pour the entire contents of the zipper bag into the skillet.
- Stir occasionally and allow the liquid to almost completely cook from the pan. Make sure to continue cooking until the steak is done and the veggies are starting to get a little tender.
- Drain the angel hair pasta and add it to the zipper bag.
- Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, 2 tablespoons soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of honey, 1 tablespoon sesame oil, and 1 tablespoon minced garlic. Shake it up and set aside.
- Once the liquid in the meat and veggies is thickening and almost gone from the pan, remove from the fire and transfer it to a 9 x 13 baking dish.
- Add the last tablespoon of olive oil to the pan and give it just a bit to get hot.
- Then, pour out the noodle contents into the pan and stir fry.
- Stir often as the noodles will stick. Once the liquid is almost totally gone, remove from fire and transfer the contents to the top of the meat and veggies in the 9 x 13 pan.
- Stir up the pan so the veggies and meat are throughout the noodles.
- Serve immediately.
You can easily substitute several things in this recipe:
- peanut oil for sesame oil – both give a great nutty flavor.
- different veggies such as onions, sugar snap peas, water chestnuts, bell peppers, etc.
- rice instead of noodles.
