Prep

  1. Make sauce - Combine tamari, water, honey, miso, cornstarch, vinegar, toasted sesame oil and chili-garlic sauce. Taste and add additional chili garlic sauce to taste. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  2. Beef - Slice against the grain into ~1/4” (0.6 cm) thick strips. Tenderize with a fork and pour half the sauce over beef (reserve the other half). Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day. (Can be done up to 1 day ahead)
  3. Broccoli / Garlic - Prep as directed. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead)
  4. Boil noodles - Bring a saucepan of water to boil. Add soba noodles and cook according to package instructions. If not using right away, spread noodles out onto a sheet pan which will keep them from sticking until you toss them in the stir-fry.

Make

  1. Heat a wok over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil and then beef (use a slotted spoon to remove it from the marinade) to heated oil. Toss until golden brown and nearly cooked through. Remove from wok and set aside.
  2. Return wok to heat and add broccoli and garlic with a splash of water. Saute until water is cooked off and broccoli is tender (the water will help steam the broccoli without it burning in the hot pan), ~3 minutes. When broccoli is tender, add coleslaw and saute until coleslaw is tender, ~2 minutes more.
  3. Push all ingredients to the side, forming a donut in the middle of the wok. Give sauce a stir and then pour it into the hole. Let it sit until you see it darken in color and start to bubble. When that happens, add noodles and beef to the wok and toss to coat everything in sauce.
  4. Serve immediately with extra sriracha hot sauce if desired. Enjoy!

Think a different cut of beef would be better.

It was all right. I felt like it was missing ginger and needed a bit more acid.

It was okay. We couldn't find Miso in our local grocery stores, so that may be the reason it was okay. We will try it again when we get miso from Amazon.
