This is delicious. It satisfies my craving for lo-mein. I have made with chicken and shrimp as well, just adjust the ramen noodle flavor to match. From WW cookbook Cooking for Two, it makes a HUGE 10 points serving. I am satisfied with 1/2 a serving.
- 1 (8 ounce) rib eye steaks
- 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil, divided
- 1 cup sliced green onion (1 inch slices)
- 2 cups packaged cabbage and carrot coleslaw mix
- 2 (2 7/8 ounce) packages beef-flavor ramen noodles
- 1 1⁄2 cups water
- 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- Trim fat from steak; cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slice.
- Heat 1 Tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium high heat.
- Add steak and green onions; stir fry 1 minute.
- Remove steak mixture from skillet; keep warm.
- Heat remaining 1 Tsp oil in skillet over medium high heat.
- Add slaw; stir fry for 30 seconds.
- Remove slaw from skillet and keep warm.
- Remove noodles from packages; reserve 1 seasoning packet for another use.
- Add water and remaining seasoning packet to skillet; bring to a boil.
- Break noodles in half; add noodles to water mixture.
- Cook noodles 2 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently.
- Stir in steak mixture, slaw, and soy sauce; cook until thoroughly heated.
I just wanted to mention that I put the nutrition facts into my points calculator and came up with 18 points per serving. Beware that each pagckage of ramen noodles is actually TWO servings, and thus 16 points. Things must have been calculated differently when this recipe was first published. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. :(
This is a pretty tasty recipe, and FAST and EASY. I increased it to serve 5 and it turned out very well. Next time I might try adding fresh ginger or definitely some Mirin to enhance the flavor. This dish lends itself nicely to experimenting with different veggies. Wish I would have sliced the beef very, very thin - which I will do next time. Substituting mushrooms for the beef is a possibility. For the beginnner cook or the parent who needs to feed a family easily after a busy day, this is a wonderful option. Thanks for posting.
Let me start off by saying according to my points calculator this meal is actually 19 points as of 2015. I did not realize this until AFTER I ate it. Thank goodness I was still within my points. If I make this again I will probably use chicken or a leaner cut of beef. Other than that, this is a very tasty recipe. Easy to put together. I would have to think hard about using this recipe again while on WW because of the points.
