Sweet N Spicy Beef w/Noodles

Anyone ever eat at Hu Hot? It's a favorite in my house, and sorely missed since we moved! Even my kids loved it there and beg to go back! You create your own Asian stir fry and watch as it's cooked on our grill.  Delicious Mongolian stir fry! This meal was compared to our experience there by my munchkins.

Sweet N Spicy Beef w/Noodles
Source: adapted from OAMM

1 lb. lean flank steak, chopped into bite-size pieces
1 tbsp sea salt
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tsp olive oil
1 medium white onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into strips
1/2 medium jalapeno pepper, diced
1 cup sugar snap peas
1 cup baby carrots
8 oz. pasta noodles
2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
4 tbsp honey
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

(All veggies are optional and can be changed out to any of your liking!)

Boil water for pasta, and cook according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat to saute onion, garlic, peppers, carrots, and peas just until they start to get brown and tender. Remove veggies from heat and set aside. Season steak with salt and pepper, then cook in same skillet until meat has reached desired doneness. (Veggies and steak can be cooked together if you would like to save on time).

Add soy sauce, honey, and red pepper flakes to skillet, and saute to cover meat. Turn heat down to medium, and add in veggies and cooked pasta noodles. Stir to saute another 4-5 minutes.

Serves: 4

Package the cooked pasta in a quart-size freezer bag and seal. Pour sauce ingredients, uncooked veggies, and uncooked chopped steak into a gallon-size freezer bag and seal. Place both bags inside another gallon-size freezer bag; label and freeze. To serve, thaw in refrigerator, then cook meat and veggie portion, adding noodles just before serving.
