  • Prepare the noodles according to the package directions. While they're cooking, proceed to the following steps.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce and cornstarch. Add the sliced beef and toss to coat. Set aside for a few minutes to tenderize the beef.

  • Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Wait a minute until hot and then add the vegetable oil followed by sliced beef.
  • Stir fry the beef with a wooden spoon for 1-2 minutes until browning slightly. Remove to a plate and season with salt and pepper. 
  • Return the pan to the heat and add the minced garlic, ginger, red bell peppers and snow peas. Stir fry for about 3 minutes or until just tender.
  • Add the reserved beef and drained noodles to the pan.
  • Add the chow mein sauce and toss to coat evenly. Serve hot and enjoy!
