This is so easy that I shan’t even question your intelligence with over explained solutions to the world’s unrealised problems… or even a complete recipe! Once the ingredients are prepped up it’s going to take five or so minutes in a hot wok. Even chopping the beef and vegetables could be executed by a trained monkey (or carnie) in five minutes… ten minutes tops if your want to stay at this point on the evolutionary ladder… good luck kid…

mmm, mmm, mmm. Beef and noodles sooo good

IMG_4223

400g rib fillet, just because it was hanging out in my fridge, sliced nice and thinly and seasoned with ground white pepper and coriander seed, and a splash of oyster sauce

a big handful of green beans, a punnet of okra and half a bunch of spring onions all sliced into similar sized pieces. Use your eyes to look at the pretty picture. There is also a handful of chopped coriander for serving. Remember when you are stir frying you should have all of your mis en place at the ready. This is also applicable to cooking in general.

soak a 200g pack of dried rice vermicelli noodle in hot water for five minutes. They should be soft but not so soft they disintegrate in your hand, thus making them useless for your stirfry

in a hot wok with a little oil, stir fry the beef and spring onions for 1 minute. Remove from pan and set aside. Probably put it on a plate or in a bowl because if you just dump it on the bench… well, that’s when you”ll get taken back to the zoo. No questions asked…

I would’ve be more than happy to eat the plate of stir fried beef and spring onions for dinner, but being a parent dictates that I must force my children to eat some vegetables because that will make them grow up big and strong

get the beans and okra into the wok now. Stir fry on a high heat for 2-3 minutes

now add the nooodles and the beef back into the wok. Also add 1 teaspoon of sesame oil, 1 tablespoon of oyster sauce and 1-2 tablespoons of light soy. Toss that bad boy for another minute

serve it up, gracefully sprinkle the chopped coriander over the top and maybe some sriracha chilli sauce if you are growing ever-so-increasingly more addicted to chilli, as I may or may not be…
