Stir Fried Noodles

The wife loves her some noodles and stir fried beef, so I decided to whip up some quick stir fried beef noodles.

Some Notes:
1) I did a pseudo Italian style job on the noodles. Cooked it till 1-2 minutes before it was fully finished (still chawky), rinsed it in cold water, and then boiled it in the finishing liquid so the noodle absorbs the sauce. You still get a nice chew to the noodle this way and the noodles get uber flavorful absorbing the sauce.

2) Sauce was meaty, a little sweet, and a little sour which was friggin delicious. Oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, soba tsuyu, sesame oil, and a tiny dash of black vinegar.

3) Used skirt steak which turned out phenomenal. Seared on both sides, then cut thinly across the grain and finished in the sauce. You get huuuuge beef flavor which you normally don't get with stir fried beef noodles. I also dug the texture of the beef as well - tender enough, but a pleasant chew.

4) I added some sliced snowpeas which added some crunch, sweetness, and color. Pretty damn addicting.
