Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7.
Make the meatballs by mixing together
the minced beef, breadcrumbs, 3 tbsp of
the black bean sauce, 1 tbsp each of
sweet chilli sauce and ketchup, and 1 tsp
five-spice. Shape into walnut-sized
meatballs. It will be quite wet, but this is
fine – just oil your hands first and roll
gently. Transfer to a baking tray in a single
layer and cook for 25 mins, turning once,
until golden brown.
Meanwhile, cook the noodles following
pack instructions, drain and set aside.
Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan.
Cook the vegetables for a few mins, then
add the noodles and remaining black bean,
sweet chilli, ketchup, five-spice and the
soy sauce, tossing well to coat everything.
Serve divided between 4 bowls, topped
with the meatballs and sprinkled with the
sesame seeds and mint.
