Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein

My husband said this was the perfect beef and broccoli.  It wasn't too spicy and had a hint of sweetness to it which balanced it out.   I used sirloin steak which was sliced thinly into strips and I used linguini noodles instead of spaghetti, which really held onto the flavorful sauce.  You could easily add pea pods, baby corn or carrots to this dish as well!

Ingredients
  • 8 oz. spaghetti - I used linguini
  • 1 T. toasted sesame oil
  • 1 T. peanut oil - I used canola
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger
  • 3 T. ginger, minced

 Directions
  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until cooked but still firm to the bite.
