Beef and Broccoli Lo Mein

I made this recipe based on an old Cooking Light recipe. I'll say it one more time, if you want a great recipe resource - pick up Cooking Light Magazine! It's a great resource and an even better value.

This recipe was so good that next time I'm going to double it. As it is, I had seconds last night and only have enough for a lunch today (which I can not wait for!)

The list of ingredients looks long but you can take some short cuts, buy bottled, minced garlic and ginger or those frozen cubes. Pick up either pre-cut broccoli or use frozen. I used frozen last night and it tasted great. Pre-mix the soya mix the night before. The longer the brown sugar has to melt into the sauce, the better. And last but certainly not least, when you make pasta make extra and freeze the leftovers for an occasion just like this!

Beef Broccoli Lo Mein

Serves 3- 4


  • 2 cups cooked spaghetti
  • 1/2 tbsp sesame or peanut oil
  • 3 tbsp soya sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp garlic chili pepper sauce (more if you like it spicy)
  • 1 tbsp ginger, finely chopped or minced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or minced (I used roasted garlic for a sweeter, milder flavor)
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 lb or 225g of beef , thinly sliced

  1. Heat oil in a wok or saute pan over medium high heat
  2. Mix the soya sauce, brown sugar, oyster sauce and garlic chili pepper sauce
  3. Saute the ginger and garlic until fragrant, about 30 seconds
  4. Add the onions and saute until soft
  5. Add in the broccoli and cook until vibrant green
  6. Toss in the beef and saute until cooked through
  7. Toss in the spaghetti and soya sauce mix until heated through
