Shrimp & Beef Pan Fried Noodles

I am notorious for just buying things at the grocery store that sounds like a fun ingredient or look like they could make a good recipe. More frequently this happens at my local Asian Food Market then anywhere else. I can never leave there without something I want to try out.  I would say as much as I love this process, The Hubby doesn’t enjoy all the cabinets full of random ingredients.

Recently I stumbled upon these noodles in my cabinet, never having had a plan for them of course. I just knew I wanted to try them soon after I “found” them again in my cabinet.  I had been reading a Buzzfeed article about the 27 Better Ways to Eat Ramen, and #3 Sirloin Snap Pea Stir Fry jumped out at me. Which is how this recipe came to life for dinner.

Some nights dinner just comes together.
