Seriously, this is so easy!

So often I tell people about our favorite quick and easy meal and realize for how often we make it I've never once blogged it.

This recipe comes from an old Weight Watchers cook book I own that's called Cooking for Two.

We've made this recipe with every type of Ramen Noodle and every type of meat -beef, pork, chicken, shrimp.

It's quick, easy and even better because it's low fat.

Easy Asian Beef and Noodles

1 8oz rib eye steak - lean, trimmed of fat and cut diagonally across grain into thin slices.

1 tsp. dark sesame oil, divided

1 cup in inch sliced green onion - if I forget to buy these I just use regular onion

2 cups packaged cabbage and carrot coleslaw - Dole's cooks down the best with this

2 packages beef flavored Ramen Noodle Soup

1 1/2 cups water

1 T low salt soy sauce

(sometimes I add sliced waterchestnuts and bamboo shoots as well)

1. Add steak and onion to nonstick skillet with 1/2 tsp. of the oil and cook until just done (adjust time for other meats) Usually a couple of minutes. Remove meat mixture to bowl and keep warm.

2. heat rest of oil in skillet and add the coleslaw mix and other veggies. stirfry until tender. Remove from pan in to bowl with meat mixture.

3. Remove noodles from package and place in skillet with water and 1 seasoning packet (reserve other packet). Let noodles cook until they are tender and water is gone. Stir in steak and veggies and add soy sauce and toss til combined.

10 points per serving - makes 2 servings- 2 REALLY big servings.
