Juicy Beef Strips recipe served with a saucy Noodle and Veggie Stir Fry
500g beef strips
200g green beans – remove ends & cut in half
2 cloves garlic – peel, grate finely & chop
30g ginger – peel & chop finely
2 tbsp miso paste
4 tbsp boiling water (for the sauce)
2 tbsp plum sauce
2 tsp soy sauce
300g egg noodles
10g coriander – remove stalks & chop
1 chilli – deseed & chop
1 lime – cut into wedges
1 onion – cut into strips
olive oil (from your pantry)
salt & pepper (from your pantry)
Preparation: Prepare all ingredients as indicated above. Boil the kettle.
Egg noodles: Place the egg noodles in a bowl and pour over boiling water (enough to cover). Let the noodles sit for 15 minutes until softened. Drain the water.
Carrots: Cut into matchsticks – peel the carrots, then cut them in half crossways. Now slice each piece lengthways (5mm). Finally place each piece down flat and cut lengthways again into a matchstick – about 5mm wide.
Miso sauce: Mix together the miso paste, plum sauce and the boiling water (see quantity above for the sauce).
Veg stir-fry: Place a large frying pan on high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the ginger, garlic and HALF the chilli and cook for 1 minute. Add the carrots, onion and green beans and sauté for 1 minute, then stir in HALF the miso sauce and cook for 3-4 minutes until cooked, but with a slight bite.
Egg noodles: Mix the stir-fry veggies through the noodles with the soy sauce and the REST of the miso sauce.
Beef: Season the beef generously with salt and pepper. Place the same pan you used to stir-fry the veggies back onto high heat. When hot add the beef and cook for 3 minutes until golden and cooked through.
Serve the beef strips with the veggies and noodles and garnish with the REST of the chilli. Add a squeeze of lime and top with the peanuts and fresh coriander.
