Method

  1. Cook the noodles in boiling salted water until just tender, then drain and rinse in cold water. Heat half the oil in a non-stick wok. Add the broccoli, peas and 2 tbsp water, then cover and steamfry for 3 mins. Remove the lid, add the spring onions and stir-fry for 2 mins, adding a splash more water if needed to cook the veg. Add the noodles and half the soy sauce and toss with the veg. Divide between 2 bowls and keep warm.
  2. Wipe out the wok and heat the remaining oil until smoking. Tip in the beef and stir-fry for 2 mins over a high heat, but don’t move it around too much initially or it will release liquid and stew rather than fry. Tip in the sesame seeds, cook for 1 min more, then add the honey. Toss to coat the beef well, then add the remaining soy and bubble briefly. Spoon over the vegetables and noodles and serve immediately.

Love this dish. Cook this every other month at least. So quick, easy & mega tasty! Even my 6 year old loves it :)

Really good. I cooked the meat for two hours, and it was so tender. And the sauce of honey and soya was so amazing! I definitely has to cook this for the rest of my life now. ;)

Very nice - never try wholewheat noodles before and I prefer them now! Why not 5 *? I didn't find it very filling

much potential here - of course me being me moved the meat around too much which did produce water and as a result the meat was a bit chewy. a lesson for next time.

Rating is pre-filled as 4 yet wanted to give 5.Very nice.Knew anything with red meat would keep my guy happy even if noodles (pasta) was involved.Was a treat so fillet steak - there wasn't much but enough - noodles were straight to wok (garlic ones) - used sugar snaps & courgettes which was what I had.Have been instructed to do it again.

Thought the honey slightly unnecessary but was great apart from that.

Like this a lot, sweet, light but filling, quick to make!

My only reservation is I can't make the sesame seeds stick to the beef like they're supposed to... but it still tastes lovely.
