    Sweet chilli beef stir fry

    With crispy basil leaves and colourful Asian vegetables, this balanced dish is both fragrant and aromatic. The quick-to-cook, cheaper cut of beef makes for a tender addition to the sweet chilli flavour.

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 25 minutes 25 minutes

    Serves: 4

    Ingredients

    1 tsp toasted sesame oil
    12 fresh basil leaves
    1 tsp sunflower oil
    340g pack Waitrose British Beef Bavette Steak, or Frying Steak cut into strips
    300g pack Waitrose Asian Fusion Mixed Pepper Stir Fry
    1 tsp sesame seeds
    2 x 48g Sharwoods Sweet Chilli Stir Fry Melts
    2 x 125g pack Sharwoods Wholewheat Noodles, cooked according to packet instructions, to serve

    Method

    1. Heat the sesame oil in a large frying pan. Drop in the basil leaves and cook until fragrant and lightly browned (take care as they may splutter a little). Carefully lift out of the pan and set aside to crisp up.

    2. Add the sunflower oil to the pan and cook the steak strips for
    3 minutes, stirring once or twice. Add the stir fry vegetables and sesame seeds and cook for a further 2 minutes.

    3. Stir in the sweet chilli melts and cook for 1 minute until the meat
    and vegetables are lightly coated.

    4. Stir the beef and vegetables through the cooked noodles, and top
    with the crispy basil leaves.
