Don't have a garlic press? Lay the garlic cloves on a chopping board, then place a chef’s knife on top and press down firmly to crush. Finely chop the garlic.
Wash and dry all produce.* In a medium pot, add 10 1/2 cups hot water. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, peel, then mince or grate the garlic. Peel, then zest or grate 2 tbsp ginger. Core, then cut the peppers into 1/4-inch slices. Pat the beef dry with paper towel, then cut the strips into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat a large non-stick pan (or a large wok) over medium-high. When the pan is hot, add 2 tbsp oil, then onions, snap peas and peppers. Cook, stirring often, until the veggies are tender-crisp, 4-5 min. Transfer the veggies to a plate and set aside.
Add another 1 tbsp oil and half the beef to the same pan. Cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 4-6 min. (TIP: Cook to a min. internal temp. of 71°C/160°F.**) Transfer to plate and repeat with another 1 tbsp oil and the remaining beef. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch, 1/2 cup cold water, hoisin-soy sauce, rice vinegar and sweet chili sauce. Set aside.
Add the noodles to the medium pot of boiling water. Cook, uncovered, until tender, 1-2 min. Drain, then return to the same pot. Add 2 tsp oil and gently toss to coat. Set aside.
When the second batch of beef is browned, return the cooked beef, veggies, garlic and ginger to the same pan. Cook, stirring together, until warmed through, 1-2 min. Add the sauce from the small bowl and stir until the sauce slightly thickens and the veggies are coated, 1-2 min.
Divide the noodles between bowls and top with beef stir-fry.
