2nd Trimester

quick easy stir fry. (my dinner tonight)

  • Beef Stir Fry with Noodles
  • 1/4 lb. ramen noodles, flavor packet discarded
  • 3 Tbs. soy sauce
  • 1 Tbs. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 lb. boneless sirloin steak, thinly sliced across the grain
  • 1 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp. Asian sesame oil
  • 2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup scallions, chopped
  • 1/4 lb. mushrooms, chopped
  • 3/4 lb. frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained, or fresh, chopped

Cook ramen noodles in a large pot of boiling salted water 3-4 minutes or until al dente. Drain thoroughly. Set aside and keep warm. Combine next 3 ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Shake vigorously. Place sliced beef in a mixing bowl. Pour soy sauce mixture over beef and toss to coat. Heat vegetable and sesame oil in a wok or heavy nonstick skillet over high heat. Stir-fry ginger and garlic about 45 seconds. Add beef and marinade and stir-fry about 2 minutes or until beef begins to brown. Add scallions and mushrooms and stir-fry about 2 minutes or until scallions are softened. Add spinach and stir-fry another 45 seconds. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve over noodles with additional soy sauce if desired.

Also if you want a tastier option and are not a fan of noodles, I make the birdseye steamfresh rice w/mixed vegetables per the instructions on the bag.  Once the beef and stuff is done put that in a seperate bowl/dish.  Add a little more vegetable oil and soy sauce.  Fry up the rice for a couple seconds.
