Method

  1. Start by making up the sauce. Mix the ingredients together in a small bowl. Boil the noodles according to pack instructions. A minute before they are ready, tip in broccoli.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a wok until very hot, then stir-fry the beef for 2-3 mins until well browned. Tip in the sauce, give it a stir, let it simmer for a moment, then turn off the heat. Drain the noodles, stir into the beef and serve straight away, scattered with spring onions.

i tried half the portion, and added carrots as suggested. i loved it very much. the sauce was great without ketchup, too. i'm sure i'll cook this recipe again and will suggest to others! :)

I added pak choi, and a little bit of sugar to the sauce, though it was missing ginger and white wine vinegar, was nice, and took minutes to make! The beef was delicious in that sauce!

really delicious and filling. i skipped the tomato sauce part as, for me, there are too many additives and sugar in it. i used mirin instead of white wine vinegar and added sesame seeds too. lovely.

Lovely flavour combinations but a couple of problems - the broccoli won't cook in one minute so I think that instruction needs to be amended and the quantity of sauce per person was very small alongside it evaporating quite a lot in the pan, so the full flavour couldn't be tasted.

How much is "3 blocks of noodles"? Tried this with fresh linguini, the noodles were fantastic. We found the sauce was a little too teriyaki-tasting, but it was generally OK.
