For a speedy second meal from this recipe, double the batch of the cooked ground beef mixture and freeze in sealed container for up to 3 months. To prepare the meal from the frozen cooked ground beef mixture, just thaw and cook with the green beans and red pepper.


 1 lb (500 g) Lean Ground Beef Sirloin, Round or Chuck or Lean Ground Beef
 2 green onions, sliced
 2 cloves garlic, minced
 1 ½ tsp (7 mL) minced ginger root
 1 carrot, grated
 ⅓ cup (75 mL) drained chopped water chestnuts
 2 ½ tbsp (35 mL) hoisin sauce
 2 tbsp (30 mL) soy sauce
 ½ tsp (2 mL) pepper
 1 tbsp (15 mL) cornstarch
 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
 3 cup (750 mL) trimmed cut green beans
 1 sweet red pepper, sliced
 Chopped roasted peanuts (optional)

Cook beef in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, breaking up with wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes; drain. Add onions, garlic, ginger root, carrots and water chestnuts; cook over medium heat until onions are softened, about 3 minutes.


Whisk together hoisin sauce, soy sauce, 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, cornstarch and pepper in small bowl. Pour into pan with meat and cook, stirring over medium heat until combined and slightly thickened. Set aside.


In separate large nonstick skillet heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add beans and red pepper; stir-fry briefly. Add 2 tbsp (30 mL) water; cover and steam until tender-crisp, about 3 minutes. Add the reserved cooked beef mixture; cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until hot. Serve over noodles, sprinkled with peanuts (if desired).
