Recipe: Asian Beef with Noodles00:56|BRANDED
You'll love the punchy Asian flavours in the marinade; they add a delicious boost to the dish. Use strips of beef sirloin or rump or if you have cooked steak in the fridge, cut into strips and add to the stir-fry to heat through before serving. INGREDIENTS: Beef - 600g Quality Mark sirloin, cut into strips (about 3cm x 1cm) - 200g dried noodles - 1/2 head broccoli, cut into florets and sliced - 150g green beans, sliced - 125g button mushrooms, sliced - 3 spring onions, trimmed and very finely sliced - 1 red chilli, deseeded and very finely sliced - 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, toasted Marinade - 2.5cm piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated - 1 clove garlic, crushed - 2 tablespoons peanut oil - 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar - 2 tablespoons light soy sauce METHOD: 1. For the marine, place all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine. 2. Place the beef strips in a non-metallic dish and pour over the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate for about 10 minutes. 3. Meanwhile, cook the noodles in boiling water until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Add a dash of oil and toss to prevent them sticking together. 4. Heat a wok until hot. Add a good dash of oil, and when hot, add half the beef and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining beef. Keep remaining marinade. 5. Add another dash of oil to the wok. Add the broccoli and beans and stir-fry until partially tender. (Add a dash of water or stock if the vegetables look dry and are colouring too quickly). Add mushrooms, spring onion and chilli. Stir-fry until all vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes. Return the beef and remaining marinade to the wok, toss quickly then serve immediately. 6. Place the noodles in a large shallow serving bowl. Spoon over the beef stir-fry and sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
