Weight Watchers Asian Steak and Noodles

Weight Watchers Asian Steak and Noodles
As some of you know I am following the Weight Watchers program. I'm loving it and doing very well! If any one is thinking about starting the program I will be happy to answer any questions I can. Just shoot me an e-mail at domesticprincessintraning@gmail.com or leave a comment ( I love to hear from ya).
This was something a little out of the norm from what I usually cook (Kent being Chinese and knowing the Asian cuisine much more that I do usually does all the Asian cooking in our home. He is a wonderful cook by the way!) but it was delicious, easy, and fun way to try something new.

Today I'm linking you with Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday!
What you Need
*2 1/2 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
*1 garlic clove minced
*1 pound of flank steak (you can substitute chicken, fish, or pork if you like)
*1 (8oz) packages of lo mein noodles (if you can not find lo mein noodles you can substitute soba noodles or fettuccine noodles. I used basil fettuccine noodles found at Wal-Mart)
*2 tablespoons of hoisin sauce (if you do not have this on hand you can skip)
*1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper, or to taste
*1 red bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
*1 green bell pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
*2 scallions, thinly sliced

Tips: You can really play around with these ingredients to make it fit your tast buds. I also added broccoli and carrots. Mushrooms would be great in this recipe as well. Look for lo mein noodles in your supermarket's Asian-food section.

Directions
1. In a shallow baking dish mix 1 tablespoon of the soy sauce and garlic. Add the steak, turning to coat . Let stand 20 min to marinate. Let steak cool at room temp and thinly slice.
2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to package directions; drain. In a large skillet add veggies and cook to your liking. Once veggies are cooked add sliced steak, noodles, remaining soy sauce, hoisin, and crushed red pepper, and scallions; toss to combine and cook on medium to low heat to warm.
3. Eat and enjoy!

Makes 6 Servings
Per serving (4 slices of steak and 3/4 cup of noodles and vegetables)
Points: 5 per serving
