Fast Weeknight Meal Idea - Trixxee - 10-22-2008

Now I know we can't all cook gourmet every night and some nights are rushed. I stumbled on this recipe in my binder today and thought I'd pass it on. I've done it with chicken as well and then subbed a chicken flavored ramen package. I was really surprised at how good it was. My husband ate every bit of his.

Easy Asian Beef & Noodles

1 (8-ounce) rib-eye steak
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil, divided
1 cup (1-inch) sliced green onions
2 cups prepackaged coleslaw
2 (2.8-ounce) packages beef-flavor ramen noodle soup
1 1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

Trim fat from steak; cut diagonally across grain into thin slices. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and onions; stir-fry 1 minute. Remove steak mixture from pan; keep warm. Heat 1/2 teaspoon oil until hot. Add slaw; stir-fry 30 seconds. Remove slaw from pan; keep warm.

Remove noodles from packages; reserve 1 seasoning packet for another use. Add the water and remaining seasoning packet to pan; bring to a boil. Break noodles in half; add noodles to water mixture. Cook noodles 2 minutes or until most of the liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently. Stir in steak mixture, slaw, and soy sauce; cook until thoroughly heated.

Serves 2.

Frying prepared cole slaw???


I just wish my hubby would get over his "ewwies" about asian food.


Re: Fast Weeknight Meal Idea - chef_Tab - 10-23-2008

Barbara, just so you are clear, I am fairly sure it is not "prepared" coleslaw, with dressing. Just the shredded cabbage and carrots in the bag. But maybe Trixxee will clarify.

Re: Fast Weeknight Meal Idea - Trixxee - 10-23-2008

Was just coming to post. Yes - pre-shredded coleslaw mix. Nothing added to it. Or you could thinly slice your own cabbage if so inclined.
