Keto Beefaroni (Vietnamese Nui Xao)

This one is such a classic from my childhood and super easy to make. This recipe is courtesy of my mama Rose, who when I asked for the recipe, mind ninja’d me into feeling bad for not calling her 40 times a day, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is a beef macaroni stir fry that is pretty common in many asian households. It’s also one of those refrigerator clean out meals that’s always satisfying.
