Healthy Beef Lo Mien

This dish was soooo good, I only got a taste of it when it came out of the crock pot, because my daughter claimed the rest of it!  It always makes a mamma happy when your kids love what you make.

This was made in the crock pot, but it’s not exactly a dump and walk way recipe.  You start out with the steak in the crock pot with the sauceweekend adventures 2262017 047

The sauce was soooo good, some garlic, soy & oyster sauce, with ginger, brown sugar and a little Sriracha sauce.

Then once that had cooked for a couple of hours I dumped a bag of frozen Chinese veggies on top, then the last half hour I took the steak out, sliced it and diced it (and this is why you can use a cheap piece of meat, slow cooked + dicing it small, it won’t be tough)  put it back in the crock pot and stirred in some cooked noodles, and it came out amazing!

Healthy Slow Cooker Lo Mein

1 lb. round steak

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/3 cup soy sauce, low sodium

1 TBSP. brown sugar

1 TBSP . oyster sauce

1 TBSP. grated ginger

1 tsp. Sriracha sauce

1 16 oz. bag of frozen Chinese veggies

6 oz. cooked whole wheat angel hair pasta

salt & pepper

Place steak in the bottom of crock pot and in a small bowl combine garlic, soy sauce, brown sugar, oyster sauce, ginger and Sriracha sauce.  Pour over steak and cook on high for 2 hours, then add frozen veggies on top of the steak, cook for 1 1/2 hours, then remove steak and cut in small pieces(cheap steak works great for this because it’s cut up small so it being tender isn’t a problem) and stir steak and cooked pasta in the sauce and veggies.  Save a little pasta water in case it’s dry, but I didn’t have that problem.
