This dish got its name from the fact that it is super easy and fast to make. I am always so busy, ergo: I love a good, delicious, home made meal that doesn’t take a lot of time. It’s Friday, I’m off, I want to retire to my sofa and watch whatever is taped on my DVR, however I don’t want to pay for take out or delivery, I don’t want to spend an hour in the kitchen, I just want a good meal. So, here’s another example of how that is entirely possible. I promise you will love this dish. It’s a little spicy, but if you leave out the chili oil in the end, it’s not spicy at all. Just delicious. I found this recipe browsing through the internet, and this one was posted on a website called “The Woks of Life”. While it’s not necessarily classic Asian, it’s definitely Asian inspired, and I absolutely love it!
What you’ll need:
- 1 pound of wheat noodles (even spaghetti works)
- 1 tbsp Canola oil
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced or crushed
- 2 large handfuls of baby spinach
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- 1 tsp honey
- salt and pepper
- 2 tsp chili oil (optional)
Cook the noodles according to the directions on the package.
Heat a wok or a large frying pan over high heat, add one tbsp of Canola oil. Add the ground beef and stir fry until almost crispy. Add the onion and garlic and cook for about 3 – 4 minutes.
Stir in the spinach until it’s just about wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Add the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sesame oil, honey and the chili oil if you are using it. Add the noodles and combine. (I used slightly less than the whole pound to get more flavor on them). Serve hot!
