Cut the beef into thin strips. Add beef to marinate. Marinate beef for 30 minutes.

Prepare the sauce in a small bowl dissolving 1 tablespoon cornstarch with 4 tablespoons water. Add 1 tablespoon Soy sauce, 1 tablespoon Teriyaki sauce, salt, pepper and 1 tablespoon cornstarch and whisk mixture and set aside.

Soften the dry wonton noodles by placing them in boiling salted water. Plunge into cold water to stop the cooking process and drain thoroughly.

Wash all the vegetables and dry them thoroughly. Cut the celery, chard stalk and the Bok Choy into 1/2-inch pieces on the diagonal. Wipe the mushrooms clean with a damp cloth and slice. Cut the red bell pepper in half, remove the seeds and cut into chunks. Peel and chop the red onion.

Heat a wok or frying pan over medium-high to high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the noodles. Fry in batches until golden. Remove the noodles from the pan.
