Beth's Beef Broccoli Lo Mein

1 1/2 lb. boneless round steak, sliced into thin strips
3 T. cornstarch
3 T. soy sauce
1 t. garlic powder
4 c. cooked spaghetti (12 oz. uncooked)
2 t. dark sesame oil
3 c. broccoli florets
1/2 large onion, sliced vertically
3/4 c. beef broth
2 T. oyster sauce
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 T. cornstarch
1 t. ginger

Combine first 4 ingredients in resealable bag and marinade in fridge for at least 20 min.  If freezing, cook spaghetti noodles for 2-3 less minutes than the minimum time on the box directions.  Drain noodles, run under cold water, then toss with sesame oil until coated, dump into gallon size Ziploc bag.  In large skillet saute onion and broccoli (use a little cooking oil), until crisp tender, dump into freezer bag over noodles.  In the same skillet, cook steak over med-high heat and saute for about 5 min, or until done.  Dump cooked beef strips in bag over broccoli.  Combine beef broth, oyster sauce, brown sugar, soy sauce (1/4 c.), cornstarch (1 T.), and ginger in small saucepan.  Heat and whisk until all is dissolved, pour into bag over beef.  Seal bag and freeze flat.

Day of Serving:
Completely thaw.  Pour into glass serving dish (9x13 works well).  Pour 1/4 c. water into bag to get any residual sauce (plus, the dish needs more moisture).  Heat in microwave for 5 min.  Stir.  Heat another 5 min.  Stir and check temperature (adding additional time, if needed).


  1. This was a hit with our family. I would be open to cooking the noodles on serving day. Thanks for thinking outside the Italian box for this category!

  2. Excellent meal. We enjoyed this one very much. The meat was a little hard for kids to chew, but they enjoyed it. Thanks!
