Beef Lo Mein

Recipe From: Salt Lake Tribune
When Blake and I got married in 2001, he said one of his favorite things was asian style noodles. I probley tried 10 different recipes until I found this one.

Beef Marinade:
1/2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp rice wine
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp sesame seed oil

2 tbsp oyster sauce
3 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tsp sesame seed oil
2 tsp sugar
1/8 tsp white pepper (or less)
4 tbsp peanut sauce

1/2-1 lb beef flank steak
1 lb thin spaghetti noodles
1/2 lb bean sprouts
1/4 cup green onions
garlic and ginger

Mix beef marinade. Cut steak into 1/4 inch slices. Marinate beef for about 15 minutes. Cook meat and set aside (I just put it in the broiler). Add noodles to a large pot of boiling, salted water. Do not drain. In a bowl, mix together sauce ingredients. Heat vegetable oil in a wok or skillet, add grated ginger, garlic and salt...saute until fragrant. Add sauce mixture and bring to a boil. Add cooked meat, noodles (scoop directly from the pot of water so there is a bit of the salty water), green onions and bean sprouts. Keep warm until ready to serve.
