Recipe: Beef noodle stir fry

I've been toying with the idea of posting recipes and restaurant reviews for quite some time now. Since the new year, I've been making a real effort to cook more, and after a recipe request from Sheenie, I decided it was finally time to stop thinking and start posting instead. So today, I wanted to kick it all off with a quick and easy Asian beef and noodle stir fry recipe:

Beef noodle stir fry, Udon noodle recipe, Chinese food
Beef noodle stir fry (serves 2-3)

200g beef mince
3 peppers sliced
1 large onion diced
1 handful baby corn small slices
1 handful flat beans halved
1/2 teaspoon five spice powder
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2-3 tablespoons Sriracha chilli sauce
salt to taste

1. To begin with, marinate the beef mince in some soy sauce, whilst you start chopping all the veg
2. In a large wok, brown off the onions, then add in the beef mince
3. After a few minutes, add in the rest of the vegetables, then cook for another 5-10 minutes 
until all the vegetables are cooked to your liking.
3. During the 5-10 minutes, season with five spice, another dash of soy sauce, 
Srirachi chilli sauce and salt to taste. You may also need to add in 1/2 cup of water
to stop the stirfry from getting too dry.
4. In a separate pan, boil the udon noodles till soft (this usually takes 2-3 minutes)
5. Drain the udon noodles, mix well with the beef stirfry, serve up and enjoy!

The beauty of this dish is that it's so quick and easy to cook. It's super versatile too. Any meat or tofu would work, and you can just use whatever vegetables you've already got in the fridge. I prefer the chunky texture of udon noodles, but you could also just as easily substitute it for some egg or rice noodles.

Let me know what you thought of this recipe and if you'd like to see more foodie posts in the future. I'm thinking of reviewing my favourite dim sum restaurant next but I'd love to get get some feedback from you guys.

  4. Wow! Thank you for sharing! I'm so going to give this a go this week. Can I use pieces of beef sliced up? xx

    1. You're welcome, thank you for the Twitter shout out. Of course, if you coat them lightly in flour before frying it'll keep the beef strips nice and juicy too x
