Place diced beef into gallon size Ziploc baggie.
Combine soy sauce, honey, ginger root, garlic and red pepper in blender.

Heat skillet to high heat, drain the marinade off the meat and save the marinade just in case you need it.
Stir fry the beef until the chunks start to caramelize.
Place beef into a large bowl.
Toss carrots, celery, broccoli and broccoli stems, onion and mushroom into pan the beef was cooking in and stir fry until the veggies are cooked but crisp. You can use some of the beef marinade to help keep the veggies from burning.
Toss beef back into pan with veggies and heat through.
Serve with cooked and seasoned ramen noodles.
