Beef and vegetable rice noodles


  1. 250g packet medium rice noodles
  2. 500g thin beef frying steaks
  3. 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  4. Bunch spring onions, trimmed and sliced diagonally
  5. 150g beansprouts
  6. 3 medium pak choi, quartered lengthways
  7. 50g dry-roasted peanuts, chopped
  8. 3 tbsp dark soy sauce, plus extra to serve
  9. Small handful fresh coriander leaves, to garnish


  1. 1. Put the noodles into a large, flat dish and cover with boiling water. Set aside for 2 minutes to soften, then drain and rinse under cold running water. Leave in cold water to prevent sticking.
  2. 2. Season the steaks. Heat a large wok or frying pan and sear for 1-2 minutes, so they’re still pink in the middle. Rest them for 5 minutes, then slice.
  3. 3. Drain the noodles. Heat the oil in the wok and stir-fry the spring onions, beansprouts and pak choi for 2-3 minutes. Toss in the noodles and most of the peanuts. Drizzle with soy sauce and stir-fry for 1 minute to heat through. Season to taste. Divide the noodles between 4 bowls. Top with the beef, the remaining peanuts, coriander leaves and soy sauce, if you like.

Chef's tip

If you can’t get pak choi, use a packet of mangetout, briefly blanched, instead.

Wine Recommendation

A cold Thai or Indian lager will wash this down well.
