For quick-cooking (and easy cleanup!), you’ll make this dish all in one pan by bringing together savory beef, tender noodles, and crisp vegetables with an umami-rich blend of soy glaze, sesame oil, and sweet chili sauce. A garnish of roasted peanuts finishes it off with a bit of contrasting crunch in each bite.
