Szechuan Noodles With Spicy Beef Sauce

This is an oriental twist on spaghetti. It was very yummy and we will make this again. Jenna said she would prefer it without the hamburger in it and have it as a side dish.

Szechuan Noodles With Spicy Beef Sauce

1 lb ground beef
1 1/2 c chopped onions
2 tsp minced garlic
1 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger
1/2-1 1/2 tsp dry crushed red pepper
2 Tbs sesame oil ***
2 Tbs cornstarch
3/4 c beef broth
1/3 c hoisin sauce (this is found in Oriental part of your store)
2 Tbs soy sauce
8 oz vermicelli, cooked (I've used spaghetti noodles)
1/2 c sliced green onion

Brown ground beef in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles; drain and keep warm.

Pour sesame oil***(we just sauted in water instead of oil) in pan and heat till hot. Saute onion and next 4 ingredients hot sesame oil until tender.

Combine cornstarch and beef broth, whisking until smooth.

Stir broth mixture, hoisin sauce, and soy sauce into onion mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; boil, stirring constantly, 1 minute. Stir in ground beef.

Toss with hot cooked pasta, and sprinkle with sliced green onions.
