Fantastic Skillet Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 12 mins

No need for a wok to make this, I have made this recipe using packaged stir-fry strips from the grocery store it makes it so much easier, reduce the broccoli slightly and throw in some pea pods too! Prep time does not include cooking the pasta, this is very good!

Nice, quick dinner. Ended up adding peppers instead of broccoli (hubby won't eat) then I steamed broccoli for me and added it after cooking. Other than that, made exactly as written.

We made this without the spaghetti, and served it over rice. All I can say is YUM!! Will make again, next time I might add a tsp of cornstarch to make the sauce "sticky" Another "fantastic" recipe from KITTENCAL! Thank you!!

This recipe was delicious! We had some whole wheat lo mein noodles to try, and, of course, we turned to a Kittencal recipe! We used our own homemade chili-garlic paste and a little less beef. Will probably make again, maybe with a little "tweeking" for our personal tastes.
