Serve with 1 cup sliced veggies.
3 tbsp water
2 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp each low-sodium soy sauce and sesame oil
1⁄2 tbsp cornstarch
2 pkgs (200 g each) fresh udon noodles
2 tsp oil

- In a small bowl, whisk together seasoning, water, vinegar, soy sauce, sesame oil, and cornstarch. Set aside.
- Fill a Multipurpose Pot three-quarters full of hot water and bring to a boil. Add noodles; boil, 4–5 min, stirring noodles gently until each strand has separated. The noodles will soften, but still be chewy. Drain, rinse under cool water; set aside.
- Meanwhile, heat oil in Wok over medium-high heat; add beef. Cook until browned, about 4–5 min. Drain liquid, if needed.
- Slice peppers into thin strips. Add peppers and broccoli to wok; stir-fry until tender-crisp, 4–5 min.
- Add drained noodles and reserved sauce. Stir gently to combine (the wok will be full!) and sauce has heated through, 1 min.

Find fresh udon noodles in the Asian section of most grocery stores. Look for the noodles in the vacuum-sealed plastic packages—these are pre-cooked and required a short time in boiling water to separate the strands.
