Beef & Broccoli with Spicy Thai Noodles

I am a major lover of Asian cuisine and we received an electric wok for the wedding which is exactly why I was mega pumped to find both Beef & Broccoli and Spicy Thai Noodle recipes on Pinterest

I made these together a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved both of the recipes! We're having a dinner party the end of January and these recipes solidified the fact that it will be Asian themed and both of these will be making an appearance. 

For Marinade: 
-1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
-1 tsp. Sugar
-1 tbsp. Cornstarch 
-1 tbsp. Soy Sauce {low sodium}
-1 tbsp. Water
-2 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
-1 1/2 lb. Flank Steak, sliced in to thin strips

For Sauce:
-1/2 Soy Sauce {low sodium}
-2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
-4 cloves minced garlic
-2 tbsp. Flour
-1 tbsp. Sherry
-3 tbsp. Vegetable Oil
-2 heads Broccoli {heads only}

*Whisk together baking soda, sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, water and vegetable oil in a large bowl

*Toss steak with the marinade to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour.

*In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, flour and sherry until smooth. Set aside. 

*In a large wok or saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil over high heat until simmering. Add broccoli and saute 3 minutes, stirring often. Transfer broccoli to a plate. 

*Carefully add remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to wok. Add marinated meat and half of the sauce. Saute for 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until meat is cooked through and no longer pink. 

*Stir in broccoli and remaining sauce, saute 1 minute more. 
{I added water chestnuts bcs J and I LOVE time I will probably add carrots and onions as well.}

-1 box linguine or spaghetti noodles 
-1-2 tbsp. Crushed Red Pepper
-1/4 cup Vegetable Oil
-1/2 cup Sesame Oil
-6 tbsp Honey
-6 tbsp Soy Sauce 
Green Onions, Cilantro and Peanuts to taste {I hate i didn't use it.}

*Boil noodles. Drain. 
Like that colander? THANKS BRYNN!!!! 
*Chop Green Onions, Cilantro and Peanuts

*Heat both oils and red pepper in a small pan over medium heat 
{2 tbsp makes the dish VERY spicy...I used 1 heaping tbsp}

*Strain out pepper and reserve oil

*To oil, mix in honey and soy sauce.

*Toss sauce with noodles

* Refrigerate over night or until cold. Garnish with Green Onions, Cilantro and Peanuts.

Such a yummy dinner!!!
