Beef stir fry with ribbon vegetables
Printable Beef stir fry
Serves 4- 6
350 g rump or sirloin steak cut into thin strips
1 tsp Chinese five spice powder
6cm fresh root ginger grated
4 cloves of garlic
2 small courgettes
125g medium egg noodles
4 spring onions sliced
50g bean sprouts
3 tbsp soy sauce
2tbsp fish sauce
Juice of 1 lime
Salt and pepper
Start by tipping the beef into a large bowl and add the five spice, garlic, ginger and a good pinch of salt and pepper gently toss altogether so it coats the beef. Put to one side to marinate for at least 30 mins.
Meanwhile prepare the courgettes and carrots using a vegetable or julienne peeler to cut the vegetables into thin strips.
Bring a pan of salted water to the boil and cook the egg noodles according to the packet instructions.
Heat half the oil in a wok on a high heat and fry the marinated beef strips for 3-4 mins so they are nice and brown but still pink in the middle. Then remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and put to one side.
Add the remaining oil to the pan followed by the sweetcorn, spring onions and mangetout and fry for 1 minute, tip the courgette and carrot strips and stir fry for a further minute. Add the bean sprouts and drained noodles with the soy sauce, fish sauce, return the beef to the pan toss over a high heat season with a good pinch of salt and pepper and pour over the lime juice.
I think this is a really healthy and easy midweek meal to feed your family and so full of colour you can adapt this by adding chicken if you prefer and perhaps a few different vegetables, again you can play with it till you find something you like.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
