Beef with Broccoli Lo Mein Recipe

If you liked our Beef with Broccoli, you will surely love this Beef with Broccoli Lo Mein Recipe. The main difference between the two recipes is the use of noodles, along with some minor distinction in the ingredients and cooking process.

You might have tried both Chow Mein and Lo Mein before. Do you know the difference between these noodle dishes? If you answered noodles, you are partially correct. The difference is not really the type of noodles used, but rather the manner that these noodles are prepared. If you noticed Chow Mein noodles are crisp while Lo Mein noodles are soft. This is because chow mein recipes require the noodles to be fried, while lo mein recipes calls for noodles to be tossed.

The main thing that I liked in this Beef with Broccoli Lo Mein Recipe is its delicious flavor. Without any doubt, this Beef with Broccoli Lo Mein Recipe will bring joy to your taste buds while satisfying your appetite. I also liked the fact that the ingredients are easily accessible to anyone. Speaking of ingredients, you will notice that I sometimes use a component called “Sherry”. This is a type of wine which is also known as cooking sherry or dry sherry. This helps improve the flavor and aroma of the dish. This is nice to have but not required for this recipe.

Since we are dealing with beef in this recipe, let me share some tips for you to be able to create a successful dish. It is a must for the beef to be tender. To ensure this, you should select tender cuts such as tenderloin or sirloin. If you are in a budget and opted for tougher cuts, try using meat tenderizer tools to tenderize the meat. I am not a fan of meat tenderizer powder so I will not recommend it. Also, keep in mind to slice the beef thinly. The thinner the slice, the less chewey the meat becomes regardless of the cut. As for the pasta, try not to over cook them. Soggy noodles is not enjoyable to eat.

Beef with Broccoli Recipe

Beef with Broccoli is an Asian beef main dish. As the name suggests, this dish is mainly comprised of beef and broccoli combined with different sauces for that delightful Asian flavor.This simple recipe is so easy to follow. I would suggest though that you use beef sirloin or tenderloin to
ensure that your dish will come-out tender. If in case you don’t have them around and opted for another less tender beef part, it would help if you slice the meat thinly and pound it with a meat pounder.
