Before starting, add 10 cups water and 2 tsp salt to a large pot (use same for 4 ppl). Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Wash and dry all produce. Add noodles to the boiling water. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until almost tender, 10-11 min. While noodles cook, cut broccoli into bite-sized pieces. When noodles are done, stir broccoli into the pot and cook until broccoli turns bright green, 30 sec-1 min. Reserve 1/3 cup pasta water (dbl for 4 ppl), then drain noodles and broccoli in a colander.
Meanwhile, thinly slice green onion. Peel, then mince or grate garlic.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1/2 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then beef. Cook, breaking up beef into smaller pieces, until no pink remains, 4-5 min.** Carefully drain and discard excess fat. Add garlic, Moo Shu Spice Blend, half the soy sauce, half the green onions and half the sesame oil. Season with pepper. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, 1 min.
Add carrots to the pan with beef. Cook, stirring often, until softened slightly, 2-3 min. Add hoisin sauce and remaining soy sauce. Cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly and coats beef and carrots, 30 sec. Remove the pan from heat.
Return noodles and broccoli to the large pot, then add beef mixture and reserved pasta water. (TIP: If your pan is large enough, toss everything into the pan instead.)Return the pot to medium-high. Bring to a simmer, tossing often. Simmer, tossing often, until veggies are tender-crisp and sauce thickens slightly and coats noodles, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Drizzle remaining sesame oil over noodles, then toss to coat. Divide beef and broccoli noodles between bowls. Sprinkle remaining green onions over top.
