    From the Test Kitchen

    In this dish, the richness of ground beef is balanced by two additions of bright, citrus flavor: ponzu, the star of the sweet and spicy sauce you'll use to coat lo mein noodles, and a squeeze of fresh lime juice to finish. Crisp snow peas and roasted peanuts add welcome crunch to the dish.

    Ginger Beef Lo Mein with Snow Peas & Peanuts
    Title
    • 2 Pasture-Raised Eggs
    • ½ lb Lo Mein Noodles
    • 1 Lime
    • 1 Tbsp Soy Sauce
    • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 1 Piece Ginger
    • 1 Tbsp Vegetarian Ponzu Sauce
    • 1 Tbsp Sugar
    • 1 tsp Black & White Sesame Seeds
    • 4 oz Snow Peas
    • 1 Bell Pepper
    • 2 Tbsps Hoisin Sauce
    • 3 Tbsps Roasted Peanuts
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the ginger; finely chop to get 1 tablespoon (you may have extra). Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate the lime to get 1 teaspoon. Halve the lime crosswise. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the lime zest, chopped peanuts, and a drizzle of olive oil; stir to combine. Taste, then season with salt if desired. In a separate bowl, combine the sugar, soy sauce, ponzu sauce, hoisin sauce, and as much of the sambal oelek as you'd like, depending on how spicy you'd like the dish to be. If desired, remove the tough strings from the snow peas. Cut off and discard the stem of the pepper. Quarter lengthwise; remove the seeds and ribs, then thinly slice crosswise.

    Fry the eggs
    2 Fry the eggs

    In a medium pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Crack the eggs into the pan, keeping them separate; season with salt and pepper. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until the whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Transfer to a plate; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan.

    Cook the noodles
    3 Cook the noodles

    Meanwhile, add the noodles to the pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and rinse under warm water 30 seconds to 1 minute to prevent sticking.

    Finish the stir fry & serve your dish
    4 Finish the stir fry & serve your dish

    In the same pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped ginger, chopped garlic, sliced pepper, and snow peas. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Add the cooked noodles, sauce (carefully, as the liquid may splatter), and the juice of both lime halves. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until combined and the noodles are thoroughly coated. Turn off the heat. Serve the finished noodles topped with the fried eggs. Garnish with the lime peanuts and sesame seeds. Enjoy!
