Beef Noodles

I had a really small steak left in the freezer the other day. The good thing about making steak into a salad or into a stir fry is a little goes a long way.  This is great for your health (red meat is good but too much isn't, even better if the red meat is being bulked out with vegetables) but also great for your pocket.

The inspiration for this was fried crispy beef.  This is not crispy before you get excited but it was as tasty and if anything more satisfying than the original recipe but also vastly healthier.

Stir Fried Beef with Noodles - Serves 1

100g, 4oz Steak (rump or sirloin)
Half a red pepper
A few leaves of pak choi

For the sauce
1 tsp grated ginger
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tbsp soy sauce (or tamari which is gluten free)
1 tsp honey
Spray oil

50g, 2oz rice noodles
Small handful of unsalted peanuts

Cut the steak into strips across the grain.  Heat a non stick frying pan until hot and fry quickly until sealed and starting to brown but not cooked through.  Remove from the pan.

In the meantime, cook the rice noodles.

While the noodles are cooking, fry the peppers then add in the mixed sauce ingredients, bubble for a minute then add in the beef, warm through quickly, then add the bok choi and peanuts.

Serve with the noodles.

Using rice noodles for this also makes this lovely dish gluten free.  Just check the ingredients though to make sure they don't also contain wheat if you are avoiding gluten (mine didn't).

    1. No problem and it's been lovely both times we had it.

  4. I love freezer treasures and making them go a long way (I once stretched two sausages to 4 portions). Thanks for sharing with #creditcrunchmunch

    1. I've made this three times since it's so good. I agree and I love the term "freezer treasures"!
