    From the Test Kitchen

    To give this noodle dish a spicy kick of flavor, we’re tossing springy lo mein noodles with a piquant sauce of soy glaze, cumin-Sichuan sauce, tahini, and more. It deliciously ties together a trio of tender sautéed broccoli, shishito peppers, and carrots.

    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel the carrots; thinly slice on an angle. Cut off and discard the bottom ½ inch of the broccoli stem; cut the broccoli into small florets. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the peanuts. Cut off and discard the stems of the peppers; cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Thoroughly wash your hands immediately after handling.

    Cook the beef
    2 Cook the beef

    Separate the beef; pat dry with paper towels. Season with salt and pepper. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned beef in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the beef is browned and just cooked through. Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a plate.

    Cook the vegetables
    3 Cook the vegetables

    In the pan of reserved fond, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced carrots and broccoli florets in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Add 1/4 cup of water (carefully, as the liquid may splatter); season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the vegetables are slightly softened and the water has cooked off. Add the pepper pieces, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
