Preparing everything took a while but once ready, it all cooked very quickly. I thoroughly enjoyed it, very tasty healthy meal. I stir fried cauliflower rice and mushrooms as well and it worked very well. Will make it again.

Yummy.....We used some supermarket 'sell off' rump steak. A bit of 'prep' involved but worth it. We both really enjoyed it for our mail meal and had enough left over for a 'snack' lunch for the following day.

Bit of a faff to prepare, so i docked a point. However it is worth it, so fresh tasting compared to gloopy sauces people use from supermarkets. I tend to serve without the noodles and increase the veg content for a healthy mid-week meal. To cut costs have also tended to use frying steak, or the pre-prepared stirfry beef. These work just as well for budget cooking.

A good stir fry recipe, very simple once everything was prepared.
