Sometimes the real work is not in the cooking, but in the prep. Grocery stores are realizing that and they are offering a ton of prepped vegetables and sauces. While these can come at a small premium on price, when time is of the essence, they are worth it. This 20 Minute Asian noodle Stir Fry is one of those meals you can throw together when you are “this close” to not cooking.
Consider this recipe a base recipe to work from. You could replace the beef with chicken or tofu, use different noodles or just serve the meat and veggies over rice. It’s versatile, yummy and although you can buy the ingredients already prepped, they are still fresh.
I really hope you make this 20 minute Asian Noodle Stir Fry. It’s a time saver and it’s delicious! Note that I did not provide nutrition information here because the ingredients will vary too much store to store. I recommend My Fitness Pal should you wish to calculate.
20 Minute Asian Noodle Stir Fry
- 1/4 cup Stir Fry Sauce I use an Organic Gluten Free Soy Garlic Stir Fry Sauce from Wegmans. Just use your favorite and watch the sugars.
- 12 ounces Sirloin Steak Thinly Sliced
- 3 cups Stir Fry Vegetables I use the stir fry blend at my grocery store. They are already cut and prepped and have broccoli, snow peas, carrots and mushrooms.
- 8 ounces Brown Rice Noodles Typically found in the Asian food section.
- Scallions for garnish
- Sesame Seeds for garnish
Remove the brown rice noodles from their package. Set in a large bowl and cover with very hot tap water. Move them around occasionally to prevent sticking. Heat 2 tbsp. of canola or vegetable oil over high heat. Throw in the vegetables and stir fry until they are crisp tender. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
Add the steak in and stir fry it really quick. You want it sliced thin so it shouldn't take long at all.
Throw the vegetables back in and add a 1/4 cup of the sauce or whatever you feel is necessary. This recipe is rather free form so if you like it saucier- go for it.
Now add the noodles, garnish with scallions, sesame seeds or what ever you like and enjoy.
This recipe is very flexible- you can replace the beef with chicken or tofu, brown rice noodles for regular, and the sauce is your choice.
