(Serves 4)


  • 12 ounces flank steak or sirlion
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda


  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili sauce


  • 1 pound fresh lo mein noodles
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 2 cups bean sprouts
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 scallions, julienned, white and green parts separated

Slice the beef into thin strips against the grain. Place the sliced beef in a small bowl with baking soda, corn starch, soy sauce, and oil. This step will make the beef tender and flavorful, with a glistening look. Set aside to marinate for 30 minutes.

Prepare the lo mein sauce by combining the soy sauce, oyster sauce, sesame oil, sambal olek in a small bowl. 

Cook the noodles according to package instructions until they’re al dente, and drain thoroughly. Set aside.

Place your wok over high heat until it’s smoking lightly. Add 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil to coat the wok, and add the beef so it’s all in one layer on the hot wok surface. Sear each side for about 30 seconds. Remove the beef from the wok and set aside.

Add another tablespoon of oil, along with the garlic, carrots, peppers, and mushrooms. Stir-fry for 30 seconds.

Add the white parts of the scallions. Stir-fry for another 20 seconds, and then add everything together for another 30 seconds.  Add the prepared noodles and the pre-mixed sauce.

Continue stir-frying with a scooping motion until the sauce is evenly distributed, making sure to scrape the bottom of the wok to prevent the noodles from sticking. High heat and a well-seasoned wok should also prevent any sticking.

Next, add the snow peas, mung bean sprouts, and beef (along with any juices that may have collected in the bowl). Continue stir-frying until the noodles are heated through and everything is thoroughly mixed.

Toss in the green parts of the scallions, and taste the lo mein. Plate and serve with homemade chili oil or hot sauce on the side!
