Spicy Beef Stir Fry with Flat Noodles.

Nothing beats a quick spicy stir fry, especially one made completely from scratch, it's as though you can taste the extra effort put into a home made one vs a cheeky thai take away.

*Little side note- after taking these pics I mixed the stir fried beef & veggies in with the noodles, it looked & tasted even lovelier so I would suggest mixing it all up in a big wok! 

Ingredients - 

250g dried flat egg noodles

3 tbsp soy sauce

1/2 fresh chilli or 1tsp dried chilli flakes

A generous squeeze of honey

2 tsp freshly grated ginger

2 peeled & diced garlic cloves

A glug of vegetable oil

Optional beaten egg (I ran out but usually I would add egg for extra yumminess)

3 shallots

1 chopped lime

350g thinly sliced steak

An assortment of your favourite veggies. I used-

A handful of button mushrooms, 3 chopped carrots & 1 broccoli

A handful of crushed cashew nuts

Salt & pepper to taste

Cook time - 20mins

Prep time - 10mins

Serves - 4

Method -

1.) First start by peeling & chopping your veggies & slicing your beef into thin strips

2.) In a bowl mix the juice of half a lime, vegetable oil, honey, soy sauce, ginger, chilli & garlic. Give it a little whisk & leave aside

3.) In a large wok or skillet heat a glug of vegetable oil over a medium heat, add your veggies & onions & fry off until veg is tender but still crunchy

4.) Remove the veggies & set aside

5.) In the same wok or skillet place your beef & half the marinade. Fry off until the beef is tender & cooked. This should take no more than 3mins as you are frying over a high heat

6.) Next add the remainder of your marinade & the cooked veggies & stir together. Add salt & pepper to taste

7.) Serve with flat noodles or rice. Add a handful of chopped peanuts over the top & a wedge of lime on the side

8.) Enjoy!
