Asian Beef and Noodles is a go to “quick” meal the whole family loves! Adding steak and broccoli make it hearty enough for the guys. My favorite part is the crunchy sesame seeds and almonds on top!
I am a huge Pioneer Woman fan! I can relate to her very well because I grew up on a beef cattle ranch. We have similar lifestyles. Most of her recipes require normal ingredients and simple methods. That’s what attracted me to her Simple Sesame Noodles. Besides having most everything on hand, I new I would love it.
Of course I added steak because, well, I love steak and I always grill a few extras. Having leftover steak in the refrigerator gets me that much closer to a homemade meal the next day.
Adding broccoli is great way to get veggies into my kiddos (and hubby). The dressing or sauce, or whatever you call it on this dish has an amazing flavor. It feels healthy and still tastes yummy. Go figure!
I fried Raman noodles, sliced almonds and sesame seeds in a little butter. Sprinkle this on top of the whole thing. Oh my goodness! This crunchy concoction takes the whole thing over the top! I’m in love!
Put this on your list of quick summer meals. You are going to want a few light dishes that require little effort. Besides, like I said, it’s the perfect way to use up leftover steak.
