1poundlean ground beef
1white onion,sliced thin
8ouncesfresh spinach,cut bite size
150gramsextra wide glass noodles,
Sesame seeds,for garnish
In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Once cooked drain off any extra grease.
While the meat is cooking, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, mix together the sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, olive oil, and minced garlic. Whisk together, set aside.
Add the sauce to the skillet with the browned meat. Stir to mix then transfer the meat and sauce to a medium bowl and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the carrots and onion. You may need to add ½ tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet. Over medium heat, cook the carrots and onions until tender, about 6 to 7 minutes.
While the vegetables are cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the water, which will keep the noodles from sticking together. Once the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook for 10 minutes. Drain the water and set the noodles aside.
Once the carrots and onions are tender, add the cut spinach and turn off the skillet. Mix the vegetables together.
Add the ground beef and sauce, and noodles back to the skillet and gently stir to mix.
Garnish with sesame seeds.
Soy sauce can make a dish salty very quickly. If you have a low sodium soy sauce, that is the best choice and why our recipe calls for light soy sauce.
Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the water which will keep the noodles from sticking together.
