Beefless tips chow mein

I am in love with Gardein Products. I bought some Beefless Tips and looked on their website for a recipe. I chose the chow mein. OH WOW I love it.

Prepare and wash all your veggys and then this recipe goes together quickly. It is so good. I used rice noodles instead of chow mein noodles.

  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup veggie broth
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 tsp ginger, minced

  • 1 Tbsp rice wine
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp cooking oil, divided
  • 1 pkg gardein beefless tips
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, sliced into matchsticks
  • 1 cup snow peas, sliced in half
  • 1 cup shitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 large bok choy, thinly sliced
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • to taste sesame seeds (optional)
  • to taste bean sprouts (optional)


In a large saucepan, cook chow mein noodles according to package directions. rain, toss with sesame oil; set aside.

In a small bowl, combine veggie broth chili flakes, ginger, soy sauce, rice wine, and pepper; set aside.

Heat wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 Tbsp cooking oil, swirl to coat wok or pan, and add gardein beefless tips. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side until well caramelized and crispy. Remove and set aside.
