It’s just as fast to cook this simple one-pot meal at home and you are using fresh ingredients.
Stir-frying is best done with bite-sized pieces of food and lots of added flavors from aromatics (garlic, ginger, scallion) and Asian condiments (soy, hoisin, chili paste, etc.).
One thing I enjoy about making Asian cuisine at home is being in total control of the ingredients!
In this stir-fry beef with noodles dish you are able to control the sodium, type of protein (beef, chicken, shrimp, tofu), and amount of veggies you would like to add in.
Play around with adding in different vegetables such as:
You can probably find a pre made stir-fry veggie blend at the store. Or you can chop up your own broccoli, carrots and red bell pepper for the vegetable options!
Ingredients needed to make this Stir Fry Beef with Noodles
Stir fry Beef with Noodles only takes a few ingredients and you probably already have most of them on hand in your pantry or fridge!
Vegetable oil: High smoke point oils are typically used in stir-fry recipes. Vegetable oil, soybean oil, canola oil, peanut oil are all great options.
Stir-fry noodles: Various noodles can be used for stir-fry recipes. You can use chow mein noodles, udon noodles, or even spaghetti in a pinch!
Stir-fry beef strips: I like to buy the beef strips that are pre-cut at the store for convenience. It’s typically a sirloin cut. You can use 1 lb – 1.5lb. for this recipe. Be sure to marinate the beef in the sauce for at least 10 minutes.
Broccoli: Be sure to dice the broccoli up small.
Carrots: Julienne the carrots, or buy them pre cut!
Red bell pepper: Slice the bell pepper into thin strips. I love red bell peppers for their great taste and Vitamin C!

Place the beef in a medium sized bowl and marinate in half of the sauce recipe: 1 tsp. Hoisin, 2 Tbsp. soy sauce, 2 tsp. sesame, 1 tsp. oyster, 1 tsp, red pepper flakes, and 1/2 tsp. garlic powder. Let marinate for at least 10 minutes.
Bring water to boil for the stir-fry noodles.
While the meat is marinating, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat and then add in prepared veggies. Cook for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add in the remaining sauce and cook for another 5 minutes or until veggies start to become tender.
Then add in the steak strips. Stir until veggies begin to soften and meat is fully cooked, about 8 minutes.
Your water for the noodles should be boiling by this point, place the noodles in and cook for about 3-4 minutes (or according to package directions), then drain. Add the noodles in to the beef and veggies. Garnish with green onions and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
Add different veggies based on preference or what you have on hand. Stir fry meals are a great way to use up random vegetables!
