The lo mein was really tasteless and the “beef” had a really strange nauseating cinnamon taste to it. The China Bistro Beef Lo Mein is a little greasy but has plenty of flavor and is packed with slices of beef and vegetables. The noodles are cooked just right, with a slight bite to them.
This food is very Americanized, but not any more Americanized that your local Chinese restaurant–most of which are already Americanized.
China Bistro Beef Lo Mein Ingredients :
- 1 1/2 pound flank steak
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
Marinade Ingredients :
- 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
- 2 tablespoons oyster sauce
- 2 teaspoons dark soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons beef broth
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
Lo Mein Ingredients :
- 8 ounces lo mein noodles or spaghetti
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 1 carrot, coarsely shredded
- 1/2 cup shredded chinese cabbage
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup oil, or as needed
How To Make China Bistro Beef Lo Mein :
- Partially freeze the flank steak. Cut into thin strips across the grain.
- Marinade: combine the oyster sauce, soy sauce, and beef broth. Whisk in the cornstarch and sugar until blended. Place in zip-top bag with the beef strips and let marinate for 30 minutes.
- Bring a large saucepan of lightly salted water to a rolling boil. Add the low mein noodles and cook until almost done. Drain well and toss with the sesame oil.
- In a wok over medium-high heat, add 1/4 cup of the oil. When heated, add the beef and stir fry until just cooked. Remove with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add additional oil to the wok if needed to yield two tablespoons. When hot, stir fry the garlic and carrots. Do not let the garlic burn. Add the cabbage and stir fry for another minute or two. When the vegetables are to the desired doneness, stir in the cooked noodles and beef. Stir to heat through and mix thoroughly. Serve immediately.
