Works great with pork too. Maybe double the sauce.

This is yum scrum - a great mid week dish that is really quick to throw together and great cold for lunch the next day. Do blanch the veg (I used broccoli, baby sweetcorn and mangetout) for a minute because then you just flash fry them with the dish to warm through. Great flavours - I left out the ketchup (too many nasties) and added half a diced red chilli. Add more if you like it really spicy.

Easy peasy.....;-)

Used ginger puree instead of fresh ginger.

May add more veg next time

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.

A family favourite!

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.

very nice & incredible quick and easy. i added sugar snap peas & mini sweetcorn to bump up the veg!

much better than a take away :)

I doubled the amount of veg, and used 2/3 the amount of noodles(wholewheat) makes it a bit healthier and easily still serves 4.
