20-Minute Saucy Beef and Broccoli Noodles

Servings 4
Cook Time 20 mins

Equipment

  • Saucepot
  • Colander
  • Small mixing bowl
  • Large skillet
  • microplane

Ingredients

  • 1 6 to 8 ounce package chow mein noodles, egg noodles, or spaghetti
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch optional - but it helps thicken the sauce really nicely
  • 3 tablespoons Lee Kum Kee soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Lee Kum Kee Panda Brand oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 to 3 teaspoons sambal oelek or Lee Kum Kee sriracha chili sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves grated
  • 1- inch piece fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 3 cups broccoli broken into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon neutral cooking oil
  • 1/2 pound skirt steak thinly sliced against the grain
  • 1/3 cup thinly sliced basil plus more for garnish

Instructions

  • Cook the pack of noodles until al dente according to package instructions. Drain in a colander and set aside. It is very important to cook the noodles only until al dente (aka they should not be fully soft) because they will continue to cook in the sauce later.
  • In a small bowl, stir together 1/2 cup of chicken stock and 1 1/2 teaspoons of cornstarch. Stir in the 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of oyster sauce, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1 to 3 teaspoons of sambal or sriracha, and 3 cloves of grated garlic and a 1-inch piece of ginger.
  • Warm a large skillet over high heat. Add the 3 cups of broccoli and 3 tablespoons of water to the skillet and cover for 3 to 4 minutes, until the broccoli has turned bright green and is starting to become tender. Scooch the broccoli to the side and add some oil to the empty side of the skillet. Warm it for about 20 seconds, then spread the 1/2 pound of thinly sliced steak out into as even a layer as possible. Cook for about 2 minutes per side, until no longer pink.
  • Stir in the noodles, sauce, and basil. Toss to combine.
  • Serve, garnished with more basil.
