Short on time but big on hunger? Whip up our 15-Minute Beef Lo Mein for a meal that will satisfy you fast without all the fast food guilt!

Heat a tablespoon of canola oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Slice up flank steak into thin strips and place them on the heated skillet. Cook the steak strips until they are no longer pink—or still slightly pink if you prefer! Toss in minced garlic, shredded carrots and snow peas and then cook for an additional three to four minutes. Feel free to add any of your favorite non-starchy veggies for a personalized flavor and added fiber.

And while you’re working on the steak and veggies, boil a pot of water and toss in your lo mein noodles or whole wheat spaghetti. Once the noodles or pasta are fully cooked, add to the skillet along with the soy sauce, sugar, ginger and crushed red peppers. Toss the ingredients with the steak and veggies until well-mixed and thoroughly cooked. Evenly distribute this hearty dish into three servings and enjoy!

With a whopping 40 grams of protein per serving, this dish is the ultimate hunger-crusher. And because this dish is oh-so-hearty, it clocks in at three PowerFuels, one SmartCarb, one Vegetable and one Extra. Women, if you choose to enjoy this mouthwatering dish, be sure to subtract a PowerFuel from another meal occasion to ensure you aren’t going over with PowerFuel servings for the day.
