Stir-fried ginger miso steak with broccoli
- Preparation and cooking time
- Serves 2
- 200g lean sirloin steaks , all visible fat removed
- 1 tbsp miso paste (I used Clearspring)
- thumb-sized piece ginger , half finely grated, half cut into matchsticks
- 4 garlic cloves , 1 finely grated, 3 sliced
- 175g broccoli , cut into florets
- 2 star anise
- 2 nests of wholewheat noodles
- 4 spring onions , cut into lengths, then finely shredded into long strips
- 2 tsp rapeseed oil
- 175g button mushrooms , halved if large
- reduced-salt soy sauce , to serve (optional)
- sesame oil , to serve (optional)
- STEP 1
Cut the steak into strips across the grain with a sharp knife, then mix with the miso, grated ginger and grated garlic. Grind in some black pepper and toss really well to coat the meat.
- STEP 2
Bring a medium pan of water to the boil, add the broccoli and blanch for 2 mins. Remove with a slotted spoon. Add the star anise, noodles and spring onions to the water, and cook for 5 mins until the noodles soften.
- STEP 3
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a non-stick wok and stir-fry the steak for 1 min until it just changes colour. Remove from the pan and add the garlic slices, remaining ginger and mushrooms. Stir-fry until the mushrooms soften. If the wok looks a bit dry, splash in a little water from the noodles.
- STEP 4
Return the steak to the wok, add the broccoli and toss well over the heat to warm through, adding a little more water to loosen the sauce a little. Drain the noodles and pile onto plates. Top with the stir-fry and serve drizzled with a little soy sauce or sesame oil, if you like.
