  • Szechuan Sauce (1/4 cup)
  • Organic Coconut Aminos (1 Tbsp)
  • Divided Salt (1 tsp)
  • Organic Tahini (1 Tbsp)
  • Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter (2 Tbsp)

  1. Heat a stir-fry pan over medium-high heat. Add chopped garlic, 1 tablespoon of peanut oil, and 1 tablespoon of chopped ginger. Cook for about 1 minute, stirring constantly until the garlic is soft but not browned.
  2. Add Szechuan sauce, coconut aminos, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, tahini, peanut butter, and water to the pan. Stir well and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  3. Wipe the pan clean and heat it again over high heat for 1 minute. Add crushed peppercorns and the remaining salt to the pan. Swirl the pan for about 15 seconds.
  4. Add the remaining peanut oil and chopped ginger to the pan. Swirl the pan again for about 15 seconds.
  5. Add the meatless beef style crumbles to the pan. Cook and stir for 5-6 minutes until they become crispy. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium-high. Pour the reserved sauce into the pan and simmer for 30 seconds.
  7. Add the cooked lo mein noodles to the pan and stir for 1 minute to combine them with the sauce.
  8. Transfer the mixture to a large serving platter and top it with the crispy crumbles.
  9. Garnish with chopped green onions and serve with drained Asian cucumbers.

Optional: Drizzle with chili oil for added flavor. (Note: Optional ingredients are not included in dietary keys or nutritional information).

Chef Tip: If you prefer a gluten-free recipe, you can substitute your favorite gluten-free noodles and use plant-based ground instead of the crumbles, cooked according to the package instructions.
