Chinese Take – Out Fake Out.  That’s the perfect way to describe this meal

What’s your go-to carry out meal?  If it isn’t pizza here, it’s Chinese.  We can all agree on it, even though everyone likes something different, it all works out.


Beef Lo Mein is my youngest daughter’s pick, every time.

Let’s face it, pasta is a favorite around here.  Especially with my girls.  Put noodles in front of them and they are happy as clams.  No matter if it’s Chicken Parmesan or  Tuna Casserole, I can’t go wrong when noodles are present.


  A couple of weeks ago, we had all of the kids home on Sunday to grill.  I had picked up a bunch of steaks, and WAY over bought.  I had some left, and decided to use the left over pieces for Beef Lo Mein.   It worked out great!


Slice the beef into thin strips, and then you’ll coat it in a mixture of oil, cornstarch and soy sauce.


Cut your veggies and have them all ready to go.  Once the process starts it goes quickly.  Cook noodles and rinse in cool water.  Set aside.


After the beef is seared, remove it from pan and add your veggies.  Stir frying until hot.  Before serving add the beef and the noodles into the vegetable mixture.


Serve hot.
