Speedy beef and noodle stir-fry

15 minutes (10 minutes)
Serves 4
Sprinkle with roasted, unsalted peanuts for added crunch or chilli flakes for a spicy touch.

  • 400g packet wholegrain wok-ready noodles
  • 2 tablespoons no added salt tomato paste
  • 1 ½ tablespoons salt reduced soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon sunflower oil
  • 500g lean beef mince
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 400g packet fresh stir-fry vegetables
  • 1 bunch baby bok choy, stems sliced, leaves coarsely chopped
  1. Place noodles in a heatproof bowl. Cover with boiling water. Stand 2-3 minutes, stirring to separate noodles. Drain.
  2. Place tomato paste, soy sauce and sugar in a small bowl. Stir in ¼ cup hot water.
  3. Heat oil in a large, non-stick wok or frying pan over a high heat. Add mince and garlic. Stir-fry about 8 minutes, breaking up mince, until well browned.
  4. Add stir-fry vegetables, bok choy stems and 2 tablespoons water. Stir-fry 3-4 minutes, until vegetables are just tender.
  5. Add noodles, bok choy leaves and sauce mixture. Toss over heat for 1-2 minutes until sauce coats noodles and mixture is hot.

Tips

A range of wok ready noodles and packaged stir-fry vegetables are available from major supermarkets. Check noodle labels and choose the brand lowest in sodium. If preferred, replace packaged stir-fry vegetables with a frozen stir-fry vegetable mix or 400g sliced fresh vegetables.
