    From the Test Kitchen

    In this quick-cooking dish, we’re bringing together beef, sautéed mushrooms and cabbage, and delightfully chewy noodles with an irresistible sauce made with orange marmalade, soy sauce, sesame oil, and more for a burst of sweet citrus that’s perfectly tempered by umami (or savory) flavors. For a bit of crunch, we’re garnishing it all with roasted peanuts tossed with more nutty sesame oil and seeds.

    1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Fill a medium pot 3/4 of the way up with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Cut out and discard the core of the cabbage; thinly slice the leaves. In a bowl, combine the orange marmalade, soy sauce, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, and half the sesame oil. Roughly chop the peanuts; place in a separate bowl. Add the sesame seeds and remaining sesame oil; season with salt and pepper. Stir to coat.

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper. In a large pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1 to 2 minutes, or until lightly browned. Season with salt and pepper. Using a spoon, move the mushrooms to one side of the pan. Add the seasoned chicken in an even layer to the other side. Cook, without stirring, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Stir the chicken and mushrooms to combine. Add the sliced cabbage; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 3 to 4 minutes, or until the cabbage is softened and the chicken is cooked through. Turn off the heat.
