Quick, simple and delicious, stir fry recipe makes a meal in minutes.


Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 lb lean beef steak, such as fillet
    2 garlic cloves, peeled
    1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and finely grated
    1 large red pepper
    3 scallions
    1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
    250g medium chineses egg noodles (1 package)
    Handful of coriander leaves, chopped
    1 Tablespoon canola oil
    1 tbsp soy sauce
    1/2 Tablespoon Toasted sesame oil
    Salt and pepper

    For the sauce
    3 tbsp soy sauce
    2 tbsp oyster sauce
    1 tbsp rice vinegar

Directions

1. Bring a pan of salted water to the boil for the noodles.

2. Trim and cut the beef fillet into thin strips, place into a bowl and toss with 1 tablespoons of soy sauce, a little sesame oil and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Crush in the garlic, add the grated ginger and mix well. Leave to marinade for a few minutes while you prepare the rest of the vegetables.

3. Heat a wok or a large frying pan until hot then add a little groundnut oil, and a touch of sesame oil, swirling the wok to coat the surface evenly. Add the beef strips and stir-fry for a couple of minutes until nicely browned. Strain into a colander and catch the juices in a bowl underneath.

4. Slice the pepper, carrot, mushrooms, scallions and red pepper flakes and toss together in a large bowl. Add a little more groundnut oil and sesame oil to the pan and stir-fry the vegetables for 2-3 minutes. Add half the chopped coriander for the last 30 seconds. Remove the vegetables and transfer to the colander with the beef.

5. For the sauce, pour 3 tablespoons of soy sauce, the oyster sauce, rice vinegar and the reserved beef juices to the pan and allow to reduce to a syrupy glaze.

6. Blanch the noodles in the boiling water for about 3-4 minutes, until tender but still retaining a slight bite, then drain and immediately toss with a little sesame oil and the remaining coriander. Divide equally among serving bowls.

7. Return the beef and vegetables to the pan with the sauce to warm though. Spoon the beef, vegetables and sauce over the noodles and serve at once.
