Asian Beef Noodles

I must say I am really enjoying the extra light at night. After work I kept checking the clock to see what time it was.  The dark mornings are not so enjoyable.  I had hopes of starting early morning workouts soon.  I think that just got put off for a few more weeks.

I am not sure how to describe this dish. It is a throw it all in dinner. The ground beef makes it a bit more white trash than I would like.  Next time I will use real steak pieces. 

You could call it Asian influenced.  After all there is some edamame in there.

It was quick and required only two pots.  There were veggies.  All things I think about when judging a meal. This one hit the mark.
