Better than Chinatown Chow Mein

Toronto was covered in a blanket of snow overnight and looks beautiful from the window of my downtown condo. I’m in the mood to order in chinese and I’m feeling a little tickle in the back of my throat. All I want is something delicious and comforting to enjoy while getting cozy on the couch with a class of vino and a movie. So here’s my twist on Beef Chow Mein.  Seriously, it will take you as long to make this dish as it would to get it delivered and this is a much healthier and tasty option!

Ingredients List:

  • 1/3 cup of rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp Fresh grated ginger
  • 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (about half a lemon)
  • 1/2 tbsp Sriracha sauce (my favorite condiment! yummy!)
  • 1/2 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • 1/2 tsp of Honey
  • ground pepper to taste
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 portobello mushroom
  • 4 stalks celery
  • handful of baby carrots
  • half of a small red pepper
  • half a head of broccoli ( i used a little leftover cauliflower as well)
  • 3 green onions
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 steak (marinating steak or skirt steak will work perfectly)
  • 2 portions of  Rooster Brand instant noodles (any chow mein noodle will do)

Serves 2
