Step 1: Combine soy sauce, peanut oil, cornstarch, and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour over sliced venison and stir to combine. Refrigerate for 30 minutes before cooking.

Step 2: Combine all sauce ingredients and set aside until ready to use.

Step 3: Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The mushrooms will release some liquid after a couple of minutes and the liquid reabsorbs into the mushrooms as they finish cooking. No oil is needed!

Step 4: Add 2 tablespoons green onions and 2 tablespoons sauce. Stir to combine and cook for 1 more minute. Remove from pan and set aside.

Step 5: Reduce heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon oil to the pan. Swirl to coat the pan and add cabbage.

Step 6: Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in 2 tablespoons of green onions and 2 tablespoons of sauce. Cook an additional 1 minute. Add cooked cabbage to mushrooms and set aside.

Step 7: Add 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan. Swirl to coat the pan. Add the coated meat to the pan in a single layer. Cook for 2 minutes then stir or flip the meat. Cook for an additional 2 minutes.

Step 8: Add in 2 tablespoons of green onions and 2 tablespoons of sauce. Stir to coat. Add in mushrooms, cabbage, and ½ cup basil. Stir to combine. Remove mixture from pan and set aside.

Step 9: Use the skillet to cook noodles according to package directions. Once the liquid has been absorbed, add in 3 tablespoons of green onions and the remaining sauce. Stir carefully to coat the noodles. Add in meat and vegetable mixture and stir carefully to combine. Cook an additional 1-2 minutes to reheat mixture.

Divide noodles evenly among bowls and top with remaining green onions and basil. Enjoy!
