Long-Life Noodles with Beef & Chinese Broccoli

Jan 20, 2021

Just because February is the shortest month of the year, doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be filled with delicious, seasonal food. Shake off the winter doldrums and make this hearty and healthy recipe.

Noodles are a key part of Chinese New Year celebrations because they symbolize long life. We love this recipe for the tradition because it’s super-customizable based on your tastes. Try swapping in chicken for the steak. Can’t find Chinese broccoli? Use broccolini instead. Or swap out the mushrooms and broccoli altogether for snow peas and carrots.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 3 tablespoons oyster sauce
  • 3 tablespoons Shaoxing rice wine
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 ½ teaspoons cornstarch
  • ¼ teaspoon ground white pepper
  • 1 tablespoon peanut oil
  • 10 ounces Chinese broccoli or broccolini, halved and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 12 ounces flank steak, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Toasted sesame seeds for garnish

How to Prepare

Step 1

Cook noodles according to package directions. Rinse and drain well. Toss with sesame oil. Set aside.

Step 2
Meanwhile, whisk together oyster sauce, rice wine, soy sauce, cornstarch and white pepper in a small bowl; set near the stove.

Step 3
Heat a large flat-bottom wok or large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add peanut oil and swirl to coat. Add broccoli and mushrooms; cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Add steak and garlic; cook, stirring, until the steak is no longer pink on the outside, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add the sauce and bring to a boil; cook for 1 minute. Add the noodles and toss to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds, if desired.

STRETCH IT OUT!!!!

There are many benefits to regular stretching. Not only can stretching help increase your flexibility, which is an important factor of fitness, but it can also improve your posture, reduce stress and body aches, and more.

1. Increases your flexibility
Regular stretching can help increase your flexibility, which is crucial for your overall health. Not only can improved flexibility helps you to perform everyday activities with relative ease, but it can also help delay the reduced mobility that can come with aging.

2. Increases your range of motion
Being able to move a joint through its full range of motion gives you more freedom of movement. Stretching on a regular basis can help increase your range of motion.

3. Improves your performance in physical activities
Performing dynamic stretches prior to physical activities has been shown to help prepare your muscles. It may also help improve your performance in an athletic event or exercise.

4. Increases blood flow to your muscles
Performing stretches on a regular basis may improve your circulation. 

5. Improves your posture
Muscle imbalances are common and can lead to poor posture. One study found that a combination of strengthening and stretching specific muscle groups can reduce musculoskeletal pain and encourage proper alignment. That, in turn, may help improve your posture.

6. Helps to heal and prevent back pain
Tight muscles can lead to a decrease in your range of motion. When this happens, you increase the likelihood of straining the muscles in your back. Stretching can help heal an existing back injury by stretching the muscles.

A regular stretching routine can also help prevent future back pain by strengthening your back muscles and reducing your risk for muscle strain.

7. Is great for stress relief
When you’re experiencing stress, there’s a good chance your muscles are tense. That’s because your muscles tend to tighten up in response to physical and emotional stress. Focus on areas of your body where you tend to hold your stress, such as your neck, shoulders, and upper back.
