Method

Marinade
  1. Place all the ingredients in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Beef
  1. Place the beef strips in a non-metallic dish and pour over the marinade. Cover and leave to marinate for about 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles in boiling water until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water. Add a dash of oil and toss to prevent them sticking together.
  3. Heat a wok until hot. Add a good dash of oil, and when hot, add half the beef and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining beef. Keep remaining marinade.
  4. Add another dash of oil to the wok. Add the broccoli and beans and stir-fry until partially tender. (Add a dash of water or stock if the vegetables look dry and are colouring too quickly).
  5. Add mushrooms, spring onion and chilli.
  6. Stir-fry until all vegetables are just tender, about 5 minutes.
  7. Return the beef and remaining marinade to the wok, toss quickly then serve immediately.

Handy Tips

  • Keep ingredients moving when stir-frying. Cooking the meat and vegetables separately is best as it allows the meat to brown rather than stew.
  • Have all your ingredients prepared and place in the order you are going to add them to the wok, as this is all about quick cooking. 
  • If preferred, to assist with even stir-frying, quickly blanch green vegetables first.
  • This dish is perfect to whip up quickly after an active session, with its good source of protein for muscle recovery.
