It’s the beginning of the week and I’ve come down with a cold.
I’d like to thank my husband for passing on his “plague” to me, I totally do not have the time and energy to burn this bad boy off.
And now he’s gone away for work and left me solo with the kids. Ugh…I need a massage 😉
Here’s what we ate for dinner last night:
Beef Noodle Stir Fry

2 (7-ounce) refrigerated udon noodles, seasoning sauce packets discarded*
1 tablespoon olive oil
8 ounces beef top sirloin filet, thinly sliced across the grain
8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
6 ounces broccoli florets
2 carrots, diced
For the Sauce:
1/3 cup soy sauce
3 tablespoons oyster sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
2 cloves garlic, pressed
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, oyster sauce, brown sugar, ginger, garlic, sesame oil, red pepper flake and ground black pepper; set aside.
In a large pot of boiling water, cook udon noodles according to package instructions; drain well.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add beef and cook, flipping once, until browned, about 3-4 minutes; set aside.
Stir in mushrooms, broccoli and carrots to the skillet. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in udon noodles, beef and soy sauce mixture until well combined, about 2-3 minutes.
*Udon is Japanese-style thick wheat noodles and can be found in the refrigerated aisle of your local grocery store.
This was super yummy, but I would add another pack or two of udon noodles, ’cause the kids LOVED them 😀
