Hayley Lucero (@realfoodwithaltitude) presents us with another delicious and versatile recipe! If you're following a strict Whole30 or Paleo diet, then use veggie noodles. If not, then use whatever noodles your family prefers or that you happen to have in the pantry. On the table in less than 30 minutes!
2 8oz. Organic grass-fed beef flank steaks
1 tbsp. Coconut aminos
1 tsp. Sesame oil
1 tsp. Arrowroot powder
2 heads Broccoli
1 cup Carrots (shredded)
1 cup Cabbage (shredded)
½ Yellow bell pepper (thinly sliced)
¼ White onion (thinly sliced)
1 cup Snow peas
4 packages Lotus rice noodles
Sliced green onions (for garnish)
¼ cup Avocado oil
1 tbsp. Sesame oil
¼ cup Coconut aminos
2 tsp. Rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp. Garlic (minced)
1 tsp. Arrowroot powder
1 tsp. Ginger powder
1 tsp. Black pepper
Salt (to taste)
For the Stir Fry
For the Sauce
Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat.
Thinly slice the meat and add to a large ziplock bag. Add the arrowroot powder to the meat and be sure each piece is lightly coated. Then add the coconut aminos and sesame oil from the meat ingredients to the bag. Let this marinate while you prep the veggies (about 10 minutes).
Place all your veggies into a large bowl.
Boil a pot of water and cook noodles to the directions on the package.
Once your grill is heated, coat it in avocado oil or cooking spray. Add the meat to one side and the veggies to another. Let these cook for about 5 minutes then flip and cook the other side for another 5 minutes.
While the meat is cooking, combine all the sauce ingredients in a bowl and whisk together.
When the noodles are finished cooking, add them to the grill with the meat and veggies. Then add the sauce and mix everything together. Let the Lo Mein cook for about 5 more minutes or until liquid is mostly cooked off.
Garnish with green onions and enjoy!
- For this lo mein, Hayley recommends flank steak because it is easy to slice thin and cooks quickly on the grill. If you have another cut on hand, you can use that, just know that you will have to adjust cook time accordingly.
- Hayley also prefers to use Lotus Noodles, but substitute with whatever noodles you like. If you are doing a Whole30, using hearts of palm noodles works great!
- If you do not have a flat top grill, you can always make this in your cast iron pan on the grill or on the stove top
