We’re on week 2 of the 2012 H-E-B/ ConAgra Meal Maker Challenge.
Last week, we showed you how to use the secret ingredient, Egg-Beaters, in our Hearty Tex-Mex Wraps.
This week I have another easy to make recipe using 7 ingredients or less…
featuring the secret ingredient of the week…
that can be made in less than 30 minutes.
The secret ingredient for Week 2 is Hebrew National Franks.
All set to see what we do with these Franks?
Recipe for the week… Chinese Noodles Medley!
This quick, Chinese medley is a long-time favorite with both the young and old in our family. I love it because it’s a great way to get meat, veggies, egg and starch onto one plate!
The inspiration behind this dish is definitely my Mom.
After a long day at work, she’d rush back home tired but determined to make us a hot meal that was packed with all the necessities. As kids, we’d always look forward to a certain quick-fix Noodle-Sausage meal she’d whip up on days she had less than an hour to get dinner on the table.
Strangely enough that on-the-spur of the moment dish became a favorite with all our friends.
And we still have a few talk about how yummy Mom’s Noodle-Sausage dish was!
Here’s a look at the 7 ingredients used in my Noodle-Sausage, with a twist, dish!…
Here’s how you make this easy, wholesome, Chinese Noodles Medley…
- 4 Beef Hebrew National Franks 97% Fat Free-chopped
- 1 cup Egg Beaters or 2 eggs
- 1 12 oz pack of Central Organic Frozen Mixed Vegetables
- 1 pack of HEB medium Egg Noodles
- 3-4 tablespoons of Soy/Soya Sauce Soy sauce is salty enough to season the entire dish!
- Freshly Ground Pepper for seasoning
- Wesson Canola Oil for sauteing
Boil water in a pasta pot and add the egg noodles to the boiling water to get these cooked.
While the water boils and the noodles cook, grab a wok/deep bottom pan and add 1- 1 1/2 tbsp oil to it.
When the oil has been heated, lightly fry the chopped beef franks. (About 3-4 mins)
Add the Egg Beaters/eggs to the franks and scramble till cooked.
Once this is done, throw in the entire pack of frozen veggies.
Saute the mix till the veggies thaw out.
Now season the veggie-franks-egg medley with generous amounts of freshly ground pepper.
Add the soy sauce to the medley and mix well.
By now your egg noodles would be cooked just right. Strain out the noodles and add this to the medley.
Mix the noodles and medley well and serve as is, or with ketchup and/or dried red chilli flakes.
