Beef & Noodle Slaw Stir Fry

I'm on an Asian kick lately.

this dish was born out of odds and ends that needed to be used up from the refrigerator.  I had some carrot juice, a small sirloin steak and a bag of broccoli slaw.  Hence the slaw in the title.  

So I decided to make another stir fry.  Since my last one using chicken and noodles turned out so well I decided to make this version with beef, and noodles, and broccoli slaw for the veggies.

The sauce is made from a mixture of a store bought peanut sauce (another item from the frig) and my leftover carrot juice.  Add in some Asian spices and my every present cashews and the rest is history!

Simple and easy....tasty too!

Enjoy this simple creation and come back and tell me how it turned out.

1/3 cup peanut sauce
1/3 cup carrot juice
1 tablespoon ginger, minced

6 oz multi-grain spaghetti
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 oz sirloin steak, thinly sliced
1 16 ounce package broccoli slaw
3/4 cup shredded carrots
1/3 c whole unsalted cashews

 In a bowl whisk together peanut sauce and carrot juice; set aside.  Break spaghetti in half and cook according to package directions.

Meanwhile in a wok or large skillet stir-fry beef until browned about 5 minutes.  Remove from the skillet. Add ginger and broccoli slaw and carrots. Cook and stir for 3 minutes. Add cashews and stir until slightly roasted.  Return beef to the skillet.  

Add peanut sauce mixture. stirring to coat. Cook and stir 2 minutes more. Add noodles. Using tongs, toss to coat. Serve warm.
