5 Ingredient Asian Beef Noodles

July 17, 2012

This is a super quick stir fry recipe that tastes much better than takeaway – and only has 5 ingredients! This is a real favourite with kids too and makes delicious leftovers.

1 package soba (Japanese buckwheat) noodles

500g skirt steak

2 cups snow peas, stem ends removed

2 tablespoons soy sauce

1 carrot, julienned


1. In a pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles until al dente. Drain; set aside.

2. Heat a large frypan over medium-high. Season steak with salt and pepper. Cook until medium-rare, 2 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer steak to a cutting board, and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Reserve the meat juices.

3 Add snow peas and carrot to pan, and cook on medium-high heat until crisp-tender, 2 to 3 minutes. Add noodles, soy sauce, and 2 tablespoons water; cook until warmed through, about 20 seconds. Transfer to serving bowls. Slice steak; place on top of noodles, and add any accumulated juices.
