Step 1

Using sharp scissors, cut noodles into 3-inch (7.5 cm) pieces.

Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add white portion of onions, jalapeño and ginger and sauté 1 minute. Add beef and sauté until browned all over, 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add broth and soy sauce and bring mixture to a boil.

Reduce heat to medium-low, partially cover and simmer 10 minutes (if necessary, skim fat from the surface during cooking).

Add noodles and peas and simmer until noodles are just tender, 3 minutes. Remove from heat and add green portion of scallions, cilantro and pepper sauce. Serve hot. Yields about 1 cup per serving.
