Udon Noodle Stir-Fry with Beef & Shishitos

Ditch the takeout, and toss together this fresh stir-fry, featuring lean steak, vibrant shishitos, and big, bouncy udon noodles.

Ingredients Included

  • Fresh udon noodles
  • Shishito peppers
  • Scallions
  • Sliced beef (see note below)
  • Black bean sauce

You'll Need

  • Vegetable oil
  • Salt
  • Chile flakes (optional)
Allergen Note: Contains wheat, soy.

Step 1

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until nearly tender, 3 minutes or according to package instructions. Drain and rinse the noodles under cold water to stop the cooking. Drizzle lightly with vegetable oil and toss to separate the strands.

Step 2

Meanwhile, remove the stems from the shishito peppers. Slice the scallions into 1-inch pieces. Drain the beef and pat dry with paper towels.

Step 3

In a large wok or sauté pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add the beef and sear until it starts to brown on the first side, about 5 minutes. Stir and continue to cook until no longer pink at the center, 3 minutes longer. Transfer the beef and any juices to a bowl and set aside.

Step 4

Return the pan to the heat, and add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil. Add the peppers and sauté until tender-crisp and beginning to blister, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the beef to the pan, add the scallions, and stir to wilt slightly, 1 minute. Add the black bean sauce and noodles and toss to coat and warm through. Season to taste with salt.

Step 5

Heap the stir-fry in bowls, sprinkle with chile flakes, if you want some heat, and serve warm.

Note:

The beef may arrive frozen for freshness. Store it in the refrigerator to defrost before cooking. If you need to defrost it same day, place the sealed package in a bowl of cold water, and leave the tap running in a thin stream for about 30 minutes.
