Beef Stir-Fry With Noodles Recipe
Fast and Easy Home-Cooked Dinner
My family love stir-fry dishes. The secret to a great stir-fry is selecting the right protein—and in my opinion, beef is the answer. To round out this dish I added some of my favorite veggies, noodles, and sauce. It was delicious.
I think the main reason why I love the dish is that it's so quick and easy: it can be made in under 30 minutes. This is one of my go-to recipes for those busy nights when I just need to get dinner on the table fast. Another great feature of this recipe is that the entire meal is cooked in one pan, which means there's minimal clean-up to do after dinner's done.
The dish is inspired by Asian flavors such as sweet soy sauce, black pepper sauce, and oyster sauce. I also added sliced red and green bell peppers to add some color and spice.
I found most of the ingredients at my local Asian market; however, if you can't find the yellow noodles, you can substitute spaghetti or linguine.
Save the leftover beef stir-fry noodles in a container in the fridge. Enjoy the leftovers the next day for lunch!
