A quick, easy, and delicious dinner that covers 3 out of five food groups in just one pot.


  • 1 pound Flank or Sirloin steak, sliced into strips ¼ inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 large onion, sliced
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup thinly sliced, or ribboned, carrots
  • 3 cups beef broth*
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 8-ounce package lo mein noodles, cooked according to package directions
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch
  • Soy sauce to taste


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, add about 1/3 of the steak strips and sear on both sides, about 2 minutes. Remove the seared steak and repeat the process for the remaining steak.*
  2. After all of the steak has been seared, add the remaining olive oil to the same skillet. Over medium-high heat sauté the onion and garlic until the onions become transparent and fragrant. Add the remaining veggies, 1 cup of beef broth, and the steak to the skillet and steam for 5 minutes.
  3. In a small bowl or measuring cup, add the cornstarch and ginger to the remaining beef broth and whisk together to make a slurry. Pour the slurry into the skillet and give it a good stir. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the sauce begins to thicken.
  4. Once the sauce begins to thicken, add the cooked noodles and a few dashes of Soy sauce to taste. Using a pasta fork or a set of tongs, toss everything together and serve. Enjoy!


  • I typically use beef bouillon  in place of beef broth mixing according to label instructions
  • The reason for cooking the steak a little at a time is to ensure that it will sear rather than steam. Searing is what gives you the Maillard reaction and the tastiness that comes with it.
