My hubby’s new kick is Lo Mein so I thought I would give it a go at home. This is a good easy recipe, but I think using the Lo Mein noodles if you can get them would be better. I would make this again it has a lot of flavor and it’s easy for those busy nights.

Beef & Spinach Lo Mein

(Adapted from Taste of Home)

1/4 cup hoisin sauce

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 tablespoon water

2 teaspoons sesame oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1 pound beef top round steak, thinly sliced

6 ounces uncooked spaghetti

4 teaspoons canola oil, divided

1 can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained

2 green onions, sliced

1 package (10 ounces) fresh spinach, coarsely chopped

1 red chili pepper, seeded and thinly sliced


In a small bowl, mix the first six ingredients.

Remove 1/4 cup mixture to a large bowl; add beef and toss to coat. Marinate at room temperature 10 minutes. I realized after I poured the marinade on I forgot to cut my meat so I did so right before I added it to the pan.

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat 1-1/2 teaspoons canola oil. Add half of the beef mixture; stir-fry 1-2 minutes or until no longer pink. Remove from pan. Repeat with an additional 1-1/2 teaspoons oil and remaining beef mixture.

Stir-fry water chestnuts and green onions in remaining canola oil 30 seconds. I didn’t add the green onions until later.
