I don’t know about you, but one of the ways that I can easily slip into a rut of feeling less-than-exceptional is coming up with new dinner ideas. When a busy day comes, and I add picky eaters to the mix, I am always happy to find a go-to meal that is easy, actually contains vegetables, and most importantly is yummy!
I was so excited to find this recipe for an Asian Beef Noodle Bowl over at Meal Plan Girls‘ website. It has seven ingredients, most of which I almost always have on hand. Want to try it yourself? You can find Jen and Ashley’s recipe here. I have tweaked it a little to better suit our family’s tastes, so feel free to check out my variation below as well.
3 c. broccoli florets (I use frozen)
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 lb. beef steak, cut into bite-sized pieces (I am going to use chicken instead sometime for something different.)
2 tsp. oil
1/2 c. Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing (AKA My favorite dressing ever!)
2 Tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
(If you cook Asian food as much as I do and you have some Hoisin sauce on hand, I throw in a tsp. or so of that as well when I’m making the sauce.)
1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
2. Add the vegetables in the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. Drain and place in a large bowl.
3. Heat oil in skillet. Add meat; cook 4 minutes or until brown on all sides, stirring occasionally
4. Stir in dressing and Teriyaki sauce; cook 2 minutes or until sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally.
5. Add the meat mixture to the pasta mix.
Voila! An easy and delicious dinner!
