This beef noodle stir fry can be made in under 20 minutes and is always a hit with the family. It is another one of those recipes I like to whip up on those busy nights when I just need to get dinner on the table fast. (Be sure to read all the rave reviews in the comments below!) I also love that everything is all mixed into one easy dish for minimal clean-up as well. So many wins with this one! I like to use linguini noodles with this recipe because I think the noodles absorb the sauce really well, but you can use spaghetti noodles or even go a more “traditional” route and try it with yaki soba noodles or even Ramen noodles.
My family loves going out for “Mongolian BBQ” and this tastes a lot like that (especially when you use Yaki Soba noodles). This beef noodle stir fry is MUCH cheaper than going out (you can probably feed your entire family for the same price as one “Mighty Kahn Bowl” (do they have those at every Mongolian BBQ?)
In these types of dishes I like to slice my beef SUPER thin… seriously, like paper thin (like at the Mongolian BBQ restaurants). The thinner, the better. To get it like this I will usually use beef that has been previously frozen and only thaw it part way (just enough that I can slice it with a sharp knife). I also like to cut it on a 30 to 45-degree angle instead of slicing it straight down so I can get it even thinner. You will find that the flavor is better (I think it holds the marinade and flavor better) and it is easier for kids to eat. The sauce for this is a more savory sauce, which I like with beef dishes but if you want it to be sweeter and have a more teriyaki flavor, just add a little pineapple juice and/or a little more brown sugar.
