Breakfast: Pancakes with breakfast links
Lunch: hot dogs and chips
Dinner: Easy Sesame Beef

Eva's Snack: Teddy Grahms with Candy corn, strawberry go-gurt, pears

Dinner was so easy to make! I got the idea from Hillbilly Housewife, but I can't refer back to the recipe since it was a paid recipe. But I did things a little differently and I added a sauce. If you're going to have noodles, gotta have sauce, right

Easy Sesame Beef (click for printable recipe)

1lb boneless beef sirloin steaks
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onions (about 3)
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (or 2 tablespoons prechopped)
2 tablespoons sesame oil

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1 pkg frozen broccoli, cooked until al dente

2 cups hot cooked vermicelli

1/4 cup cold water
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups beef broth

Cut beef diagonally across grain into 1/8” slices.

Mix sugar, soy sauce, sesame oil, pepper, green onions and garlic in glass or plastic bowl. Stir in beef until well coated. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Sauce: Mix cornstarch into the cold water, mix until combined, then add to beef broth.

Heat oils in pan. When oils start to shimmer, add beef and marinade. Then add sesame seeds. Stir until beef is brown, about 5 minutes, then add broccoli. Add sauce and stir until sauce starts to bubble and thicken.

Serve over cooked vermicelli.
