Beef Lo Mein


I am a huge proponent of starting to prep a dish long before you are ready to cook it. I froze this steak for about an hour before we sliced it super thinly. Then while making dinner the night before I was going to serve this I had the family make the marinade and put the steak in the fridge. When we went to make dinner the next night it was super simple to put together. I used a bag of broccoli slaw mix to make the prep on this dinner even easier and it was a bit different from the usual cabbage in this dish!

Verdict:

We all loved this dish. It was super easy to make and easily customizable to each of our tastes. I liked more soy sauce while my daughter was fine with it just like it was. My son wanted some Siracha over the top so he added a dash or two. There was enough left for a large lunch serving the next day.

Serve this with a nice salad or a green vegetable to complete the meal.
