I made a roast the other night in my crock pot. I just stuck it in the pot with some salt and pepper and set the cooker on high for four hours. I didn’t make it for dinner. It was ready about bedtime and I cooled it overnight in the fridge.

The next day I sliced some of it up to use in this recipe. The remainder will make great sandwiches and other quick meals! It was REALLY cheap roast, but NOT marbled! Perfect for slicing up! If you are into meal planning this is a good Option!

Frugal living tip: I bought my roast on special. I found an excellent two for one deal at the grocery store and froze both roasts until this week. Now I’m using one up in several meals.

I love beef in Asian recipes and I haven’t made one since I made the Crock Pot Asian Beef Broccoli Dinner. If you have leftover steak or roast beef you can use it in this meal. That makes dinner so easy!

SESAME BEEF THAI NOODLE DINNER

Sesame Beef Thai noodle dinner has a rich spicy sauce that wakes up those taste buds! Don’t like spice? Lose the hot peppers!

For dinner tonight I wanted to use up some Thai rice noodles I’ve had floating about in the pantry for a while. I found a recipe from Ree Drummond that inspired me, and off I went. This is the result of that creative endeavor and I’m pleased with it! My NOT a spice lover son came over for dinner, so I toned down the spice for him.

As it turned out, Dave wanted more taste bud bang for his bite! You are seeing the jazzed up version Dave loves. I wrote the spicier version into the recipe for you. If you have a milder palate, like our son, use bell peppers, not Bangkok peppers. We STILL have Bangkok peppers growing in the greenhouse in January! We are getting used to more spice in our diets. I have several gallon bags of Bangkok Peppers in my freezer.

I am quite impressed with these quick cooking Thai rice noodles. They are low-fat! Unlike Ramen noodles that are embarrassingly high in, really bad for you, fat, these Thai noodles are a much better choice for your diet. They are still full of carbs, so you need to know they will fill you up fast! Don’t take more than you need. Sesame Beef Thai noodle dinner makes great leftovers! The noodles don’t mush up, which I prefer!

Sesame Beef Thai Noodle Dinner Recipe Notes:

You can cook a roast ahead, as I did, to make Sesame Beef Thai Noodle Dinner. However, Leftover sliced beef will speed up this already very fast and easy recipe to pretty much lightening speed. If you have some leftover roast or steak kicking around in the fridge, this is a good way to use it. FYI, I am including instructions for cooking up your meat raw too.

Here’s how to make this quick and easy dinner!

  1. Layer sliced roast beef into a shallow baking dish

  3. Pour the marinade over the beef slices and store in the fridge.
  4. Heat the water for the noodles and cook according to the package directions
  5. Heat a large skillet to medium high and add oil.
  6. Add the onions, peppers and snow peas and cook until the onions are transparent. maybe peppers and onions a bit browned.
  7. Add the meat mixture and all its marinade juices to the skillet and cook on low, until the marinade thickens into a nice sauce.
  8. Drain the noodles and serve on the plate with the stir fry ladled on top.
  9. Garnish with sesame seeds, cilantro, parsley or fresh basil.

If you just get ordinary, plain ramen noodles on their own, not part of a soup pack, there is basically no fat (1.2g per 100g, and only .2g saturated). They’re delicious.

Exceptionally easy and a creative way to use up left overs. I added broccoli & red pepper right before the meat went in and let the steam cook them. It was a hit! Thank you for this simple recipe!

Oh my, this was amazing, We had lots of leftover pot roast and I just shredded it and put it in the marinade, Only had egg noodles on hand, but it was delicious all combined together.. Didn’t have all of the vegetables on hand, so just diced up and cooked onion and then threw the marinated beef in, Thank you!
