My husband and I love exploring new places. Currently, we reside in Utah. Someday, we would like to travel all across the United States.

My family loves beef stir-fry noodles. I made this for dinner this week, and it was delicious!

Fast and Easy Home-Cooked Dinner

My family loves stir-fried dishes. The secret to a great stir-fry? Selecting the right protein—and in my opinion, the best protein is beef. To round out this dish, I added some of my favorite veggies, noodles, and sauce. It was delicious.

The main reason why I love the dish is that it's quick and easy: it can be made in under 30 minutes. This is one of my go-to recipes for 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!
