Now we get to the sesame seeds. They are toasted in a dry pan over medium heat. Do not allow them to burn. Set aside for later in the recipe.
I sliced the beef into thin, bite-size strips.
The meat marinates in the mixture.
The ingredients for the sauce. Now, this is where the sesame seeds come in.
The finished sauce.
I decided to add some more veggies to the mix since I am trying to eat more fresh vegetables.
The veggies have been sliced and diced.
I decided to use Udon noodles for this dish. However, I can only find these noodles packaged with a tiny packet of seasonings, additives and preservatives.
So, can you guess what happened to that little mystery packet? Yep, it got tossed to the side.
It's important to not crowd the pan when sauteeing the meat.
Once the meat has been sauteed in batches, it is time to do the veggies.
Add the beef back in, pour in the sauce and gently break apart the udon noodles and add those to the pan.
While this was good, we do prefer other stir fries we have had a bit better. I ended up making a quick Teriyaki Sauce to appease my daughter's palate. All in all, good. Not great, but good.
