Stir Fry Sesame Beef Noodles

I am addicted to these sesame noodles and adding steak and bell peppers gives it a little something extra.  This tasted amazing and was simple to make.  I love getting to use my wok since I don't use it often enough.  Stir fries are quick and easy but the key is to prep first.  I already had pre-sliced bell peppers to dip with homemade hummus.  The leftover stir fry sesame beef noodles also tasted great!  Enjoy!

Stir Fry Sesame Beef Noodles

½ pound beef sirloin steak, cut 1 inch thick
½ pound linguine pasta
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons sugar
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
3 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
4 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 green onions, thinly sliced
1 cup red and/or green bell peppers, sliced
salt and pepper to taste


Place steak in freezer.  Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain well.

Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sugar, garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, vegetable oil and ½ the sliced green onions. 

Cut the cold steak across the grain into thin slices.  Toss with sesame sauce.

In a wok (or large skillet) on medium-high heat, add in ½ the sesame sauce with beef and bell peppers.  Cook for 5 to 7 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Continue to stir while cooking. 

Add in linguine pasta and stir in remaining sesame sauce.  Cook for 1 minute. Top with remaining green onions.  

Serves 2 to 4.
