Chilli Beef Noodles: Ingredients
- Sirloin steak
- Dried chilli
- Fresh noodles (dried will also work)
- Soy sauce
- Mangetout (or a similar crunchy green vegetable)
Start by slicing up the beef. You can leave the fat on for extra taste. Add as much chilli as you can handle, but do remember the dried version usually packs a serious punch.
Pop the noodles into a pot of boiling water. The whole dish only takes a couple of minutes to cook so get them on first. Add the beef to a piping hot frying pan or wok. The hotter the better!
Within seconds, add the ginger, garlic and mangetout. Because the pan is so hot you will only be cooking these for about 30-45 seconds.
Finish with a generous amount of soy sauce. You want it to cook the mixture off for 20 seconds to create a simple and delicious glaze.
Turn the heat off and add in the noodles. Toss them in with all that tasty glaze and ingredients, so that everything is coated perfectly.
Serve immediately. You’ll love the fiery kick and if you’ve bought good quality beef you will have a real feel-good meal.
