Currently my favorite take-out, made-in meal. This stir fry of vegetables, beef (or chicken) and soba noodles is the perfect healthy, satisfying and insanely tasty meal that takes no time at all to prepare. The trick is to prepare all of the ingredients before beginning to cook because once you start stir frying it only takes a minute or two from start to finish. Also great about making your favorite take-out meals at home is that you control the ingredients, so you know exactly what is in it and you can make it specifically to your liking. In my case that means extra spicy!
