Beef Lo Mein

Who doesn't love Chinese, right? Besides you picky eaters out there! Thankfully, you don't live at my house so here is one of our favorite recipes!

Lo Mein
1 pound beef, pork, chicken, or shrimp, sliced into bite-size pieces
Veggies of your choice: asparagus, broccoli, snow peas, carrots, squash, zucchini, mushrooms, onions, peppers etc
1/2 lb. spaghetti noodles
1 1/2 tbsp. cornstarch
3 tsp. soy sauce
3 tsp. garlic teriyaki sauce (I'm a little disturbed because they have apparently quit carrying this in stores. You can just use more soy sauce or regular teriyaki sauce.)
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 cup water
Olive or vegetable oil

Cook pasta according to package directions. Heat a wok or large skillet to medium and add small amount of oil. Combine the cornstarch, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, ginger, red pepper flakes, and water in a small sauce pan. Simmer over medium-low, stirring occasionally, while the rest of the meal cooks. Saute each vegetable in oil until crisp-tender. (I cook all my veggies separately because they have different cooking times, but you can double up if you want to speed it up!) Place cooked veggies into a large bowl. Once veggies are cooked, saute your meat until done and add the veggies back to skillet. Drain pasta and add to skillet. Stir and pour in the sauce. Stir and serve! Yummy!!
