  1. 1

    Cook Beef and Prepare Ingredients

    Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.

    Add ground beef and half the soy sauce (reserve remaining for sauce) to hot pan. Break up meat until no pink remains and beef reaches a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees, 4-6 minutes.

    Transfer ground beef to a plate. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

    While beef cooks, thinly slice green onions on an angle.

    Combine cornstarch and 1/2 cup water in a mixing bowl.

  2. 2

    Cook the Cabbage

    Return pan used to cook beef to medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil.

    Add cabbage to hot pan and stir often until tender, 2-3 minutes.

    Transfer cabbage to plate with beef. Wipe pan clean and reserve.

  3. 3

    Make the Sauce

    Return pan used to cook beef and cabbage to medium-high heat.

    Add orange sauce (to taste), remaining soy sauce, mirin, and 1/2 cup water to hot pan. Bring to a simmer.

    Stir cornstarch-water mixture to recombine.

    Once simmering, add cornstarch slurry to hot pan. Stir occasionally until thickened and sauce coats the back of a spoon, 1-2 minutes.

  4. 4

    Add the Noodles

    Add noodles, beef, cabbage, and red pepper flakes (to taste) to pan and gently stir until coated and heated through, 2-3 minutes.
