Sweet and Spicy Beef with Noodles

Originally from How Sweet It Is, recipe found here

1 pound beef tenderloin, chopped

1/2 tablespoon sea salt

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/2 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 red pepper, sliced

1/2 jalapeno pepper, chopped and seeds removed

1 cup sugar snap peas

1/2 pound pasta noodles (I used capellini)

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 tablespoons honey

pinch of red pepper flakes

Season beef with salt and pepper and set aside. Bring pasta water to a boil and cook pasta according to directions. While cooking pasta, heat olive oil in a large saucepan and add peppers and onions. Saute until soft, after 5-6 minutes. Add in peas, mushrooms and jalapeno and cook for 3 more minutes. Stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Remove veggies from pan and set aside in a bowl. Drain pasta if finished and set aside.

Turn the heat to medium-high, and add beef. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes, or until a nice golden color develops. Add honey and soy sauce, then stir in noodles and vegetables. Sprinkle with a pinch of red pepper flakes and serve. Season with salt and pepper if desired.
