SPICY Hot & Sweet Sirloin Lo Mein
Ingredients for Hot and Sweet Sirloin Lo Mein:
8 Oz. Fettochini noodles
1 pound trimmed sirloin steak sliced thin
1/2 C. hot pepper jam or jelly (I used jam.)
1/2 C. soy sauce
1/2 C. water
1 T. honey
1 1/2 T.cornstarch
pinch black pepper
2 T. Safflower oil
6-7 Oz. fresh sugar snap peas, sliced in half lenghtwise (I used 1/2 of a 15 Oz. pkg.)
1 1/2 C. shredded carrots
4-5 green onions cut into 1" matchsticks
Cook pasta according to package direction. Drain and return the noodles to the pan they were cooked in and cover to retain their heat.
Heat a large flat bottomed pan or skillet over medium high heat and add the oil. Stir fry the steak for about 2-3 minutes. The steak should be slightly pink. Transfer to a dish and cover to keep warm. Add more oil if needed and stir fry the peas and carrots for 3-4 minutes. Stir in the jelly mixture and add the onions, steak, and any juices from the meat that have accumulated. Cook for about a minute until the sauce is thickened and boils. Toss the noodles with the steak and vegetables and plate on a large platter to serve or in shallow flat bottomed bowls. Yield 4 servings.
Note: I will be making hot Pepper jelly for the first time this year!!
