Busy Day Meal Idea: Spicy Beef Noodle Stir Fry

This is a great recipe to whip up on a busy night. It is inexpensive, fast and my family love it. I often serve it on rice instead of noodles and have successfully substituted the beef for chicken.

440g flat rice noodles
1/3 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoons brown sugar
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
1/2 teaspoon Chinese five spice
1 tablespoon oil
500g beef mince
Assortment of stir fry vegtables, chopped and diced

  1. Prepare and cook noodles. Combine stock, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, sugar, garlic, ginger and Chinese five spice in a small bowl.
  2. Heat wok or large frypan, add half the oil and brown the mince for 5 minutes. Transfer the meat to a plate. Heat the remaining oil and add the vegetables. Stir fry fry for 2-3 minutes until the vegetables are bright in colour, tender and crisp.
  3. Add the stock mixture, mince and noodles to the pan. Stir fry for 2 minutes or until noodles are soft and heated through.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
