Easy Lo Mein Using Leftover Steak




   I love cooking steaks or chicken and then using the leftovers (or planned overs in this case) for other dishes.  Saturday night I cooked up 5 marinated elk steaks.  Jeff and I each had one for dinner along that night and I set aside the other 3 for future meals.  Tonight I took one of those steaks and made Lo Mein with it.  I boiled up about half a package of Garden Delight spaghetti noodles and while those were working, I prepped all my veggies and meat.  



   I used half an onion, 1 large carrot, 1 stalk of celery, 1 large leaf of cabbage and one of the steaks.  I cut these all up into thin slices.  I then quickly stir fried the veggies, adding the carrots and celery first, a few minutes late added the onions and then added the cabbage, steak, and some minced garlic.  I made a quick sauce with some water, a little sugar and some Oyster Sauce and added it to the pan then added the cooked noodles, stirred everything together and let that cook for about a minute so the sauce would soak into and coat the noodles.  It was really good, fast, frugal and easy and totally satisfied my craving for Chinese food.

  3. Me, too!!! Your noodle dish looks amazing.
    Last week Safeway had chicken breasts on sale for a great price. I cooked up the whole package at once. Some I froze once cooked for future meals. Baked one with tomatoe sauce, cheese and pasta. Another I did with pesto and onion over noodles. Yum!
    Hope you're feeling better. Cheers, SJ

    1. Oh that sounds so good SJ! I've done the Lo Mein recipe with chicken before and it was really good. :)

  4. Yum! Looks and sounds really good. I wonder if I have any oyster sauce lurking in the back of the fridge?

  5. I love making homemade Lo Mein! Of course, we don't really have a Chinese restaurant around here to frequent, which is why I make it at home. I also love finding unique and delicious ways to use up leftover meat. Steak is one of my favorites to use as a leftover, and stroganoff is usually what I make with it. I think I'll have to try some Beef Lo Mein next time! 😁

    1. It's really fast to throw together and so yummy! It is also a great way to get a picky eater husband to eat more veggies. ;)
