1 1/2 (11 oz. ) bags Asian Blend frozen vegetables (snow peas, broccoli florets and red peppers) (Pictsweet brand)
1 ½ cups water

Cut beef steak lengthwise in half, then crosswise into 1/8-inch thick strips. Combine 2 packets seasoning from ramen noodles with cornstarch mixture in large bowl. Add beef strips and toss. (hint&to easily cut steak, first wrap in plastic wrap and place in freezer for 20-30 minutes, then cut).

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Stir-fry frozen vegetables, mushrooms and water chestnuts about 1-2 minutes. Add noodles and 1 ½ cups water; bring to boil. Reduce heat until vegetables are tender and most of liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally. Remove; keep warm.

In same skillet, heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add half the beef; stir-fry 1-2 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink. Remove from skillet and keep warm. Repeat with remaining beef. Serve over noodles.
