In large bowl, cover noodles with boiling water; let stand for 20 minutes. Drain.

In wok or large saucepan, heat oil over high heat; stir-fry garlic and jalapeno pepper for 20 seconds. Add beef; stir-fry until browned yet still pink inside, about 2 minutes. Remove to plate; keep warm.

Add green beans, 2 tbsp (25 mL) water, fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice and sugar to pan; cover and cook until beans are tender-crisp, about 3 minutes.

Add noodles; stir-fry until tender, about 2 minutes. Return meat to pan; add bean sprouts and toss to combine well. Add coriander and basil; toss to combine.
