Ingredients

  • 1½ tbsp reduced salt soy sauce (we used Kikkoman)
  • 2 tsp clear honey
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and sliced
  • ½ tbsp Chinese 5 spice
  • 3 tsp sesame oil
  • 175g beef sizzler steaks, trimmed
  • 85g dried soba noodles or rice noodles
  • 1 medium onion, sliced thickly
  • 150g trimmed green beans, halved
  • 1 x 225g tin water chestnuts, drained

Step by step

  1. Mix half the soy, the honey, chilli, 5 spice and 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil together in a bowl. Cut the steak into thin strips and turn to coat. Set aside for 5-10 minutes to marinate.
  2. Cook the noodles in salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes or until just al dente, then drain and refresh in cold water.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon of sesame oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Tip in the beef and marinade and stir-fry for 2 minutes (it will cook quickly as it’s so thin) then tip into a bowl. Wipe out the pan if necessary and heat the rest of the sesame oil.
  4. Add the onion and green beans to the pan and stir fry for 2-3 minutes until starting to colour. Add 3 tablespoons of water to help cook the beans through and cook for a further 3 minutes before adding the water chestnuts, noodles and remaining soy. Return the beef to the pan and toss everything together to heat through thoroughly.
  5. Divide between 2 bowls to serve.
