This recipe strikes the perfect balance between sweet and sour—a popular flavor duo in traditional Chinese cuisine. We’re finishing our stir-fry with a sauce of savory-sweet soy glaze and tart rice vinegar. The sauce lightly coats the vegetables—green beans and bok choy, a type of Chinese cabbage—as well as juicy beef and udon noodles. A Japanese addition, these noodles are exceptionally chewy and thick. They’re a delicious contrast to the crisp vegetables and crunchy peanuts on top.
