This isn't your mother's stir-fry. This isn't some fly-by-night with an old packet of soy sauce tossed in for a bit of flavor. This tasty mix of vegetables and noodles is highlighted by ponzu, a tart citrus-y sauce that's balanced with a burst of Sriracha heat and a touch of sugar. The charred green beans and bell pepper add further flavor and texture to a meal that leaves all other stir-fries in the dust.
