step-by-step
instructions
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut the green beans into 1-inch pieces. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a bowl, combine the orange marmalade, soy glaze, vinegar, sesame oil, 1/4 cup of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. 

Cook the beef:
2 Cook the beef:

Pat the beef dry with paper towels and place in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cornstarch; toss to thoroughly coat. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high until hot. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of cornstarch sizzles immediately when added, add the coated beef in an even layer (tapping off any excess cornstarch). Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned. Add the cabbage and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until the cabbage is slightly softened and the beef is cooked through. Turn off the heat. 

Cook the green beans & noodles:
3 Cook the green beans & noodles:

While the beef cooks, to the pot of boiling water, add the green bean pieces and noodles (gently stirring to separate). Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Turn off the heat. Drain thoroughly and return to the pot. 

Finish the noodles & serve your dish:
4 Finish the noodles & serve your dish:

To the pot of cooked green beans and noodles, add the cooked beef and cabbage and sauce. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until coated. Turn off the heat. Serve the finished noodles garnished with the chopped peanuts. Enjoy!
