Szechuan Noodles With Spicy Beef Sauce Recipe - - 48760

Only change is that I omit the red pepper flakes at cooking and we add spicies at the table since little taste buds can't handle the heat. I also shredded 2 carrots into the sauce. Add chopsticks (with the plastic helpers) and everyone eats it all up!
