  1. Cook spaghetti according to package directions
  2. Mix lime juice, hoisin sauce and chile-garlic sauce in a small bowl.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add steak and stir fry until cooked through.  Remove steak, but leave juices in the skillet.  Add vegetables to the skillet, cook for 4 minutes.  Add ginger, sauce and steak and cook for another minute.  Toss with the noodles and serve.
