Stir-fry Sauce


Thinly slice the beef, coat with green seasoning, and set aside in a container to marinate.
Make the stir-fry sauce by combining all the ingredients into a small bowl, making sure to dissolve the sugar, and then set aside.
Cook noodles in a pot filled with boiling water, according to package instructions, strain, coat with one tablespoon peanut oil, then set aside.
Using a wok or large deep skillet, place on medium-high heat and add one tablespoon peanut oil.
Once the oil is smoking hot, add the beef strips and cook for 5 minutes or until soft and tender, then remove and set aside in a bowl.
After removing the beef, add two tablespoons of peanut oil and sesame oil into the pan and bring to a smoking heat.
Once the oil is smoking, add the onion, garlic, ginger, seasoning peppers and cook for 2-3 minutes, tossing them together.
Add the carrots, celery, green onion, broccoli, and sweet peppers, cook for 3-5 minutes, mixing everything.
Now add any or all of the optional ingredients and cook for 3-5 minutes and mix.
Add the cabbage and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Now add the noodles, tossing and mixing everything for another 3-5 minutes.
Return the beef to the wok, mix in the sauce making sure everything is coated.
Remove from the heat and allow the chow mein to rest for 5 minutes before serving warm and enjoy.
