Rice Noodles with Sesame-Ginger Flank Steak

I just tried this one tonight. Everyone seemed to like it...

------------------------------
Ingredients:

1/3 cup rice vinegar
3 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 and 1/2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 teaspoons dark sesame oil
1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed and cut into 1/4-inch strips
1 and 1/2 cups shredded carrot
1 and 1/2 cups sugar snap peas
1 cup of 1/4-inch slices of red bell pepper strips
1/2 sup fresh bean sprouts
4 cups hot cooked rice noodles (roughly 8 ounces uncooked noodles)
1/2 cup chopped green onions
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted

Directions:

1. Combine the first 8 ingredients in a separate bowl, stirring until sugar dissolves.

2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over a medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of the sesame seed oil to the pan. Add half of the steak, saute for 4 minutes or until browned. Remove steak from pan.

3. Repeat step two with remaining oil and steak.

4. Add vinegar mixture from step 1, carrot, peas, bell pepper, and sprouts to pan. Cook and stir for 3 minutes.

5. Return steak to pan. Add noodles, cook 1 minute, stirring constantly.

6. Sprinkle with onions and sesame seeds.

7. Serve and enjoy.

It makes a pretty generous amount of food. I doubled the recipe and it over-fed four college men.

Hope you guys like it.

Sounds good, but it doesn't sound much like what I ate in college.
