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.
