Method

  1. Place the stock, ginger, chilli and spring onions in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan until very hot and brush the steak with the oil. Griddle the steak for 2 mins each side for medium-rare. Transfer to a chopping board and leave to rest for 1 min, then thinly slice.
  2. Add the pak choi to the stock, then the noodles, bring to the boil and simmer for 3 mins until tender. Ladle the stock, noodles and pak choi into large serving bowls and top with thin slices of steak.

I really liked this dish, however, halve the noodle amount!

I thought this would be a bit tasteless but it was delicious. I added a few drops of sesame oil, which made all the difference. Make sure you don't overcook the meat, as it continues to cook in the stock. Next time I'll add the pak choi after the noodles, rather than at the same time, as it was a bit overcooked. A recipe that I will make again and again.

Flavours were great and we all enjoyed, but made us all very windy :-)

I agree with one of the other comments, this is way too much for two people - 300g of noodles is enough for three and I am not sure why I still went ahead and put them all in! I also added a thinly sliced red pepper. I think this dish has real potential but the quantities need to be looked at.

Yummie! Very easy and simple, had a good friend over, who can often be hard to please but she loved it!! I agree that there was a huge amount for two people, as noodles are very filling. Maybe less noodles and more ginger next time.

i found that there was far too much for two people. i would use less stock, mince the chilli and ginger, and add some garlic to make a tastier broth. cooked the steak rare as it continues to cook in the hot broth.

Really Tasty! Quick and easy midweek recipe. A great way to use the Pak Choi i received in my veg box.

I find it hard to believe there are so many calories or so many grams of carb in this recipe.
