    Japanese-style beef and broccoli noodles

    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    1 tbsp essential Waitrose sunflower oil
    2 essential Waitrose onions, thinly sliced
    100g folded rice noodles
    200g pack Tenderstem broccoli spears
    2 tbsp light soya sauce
    2 tbsp shaoxing wine vinegar
    1 tsp cornflour
    2 British beef bavette steaks (about 275g total), very thinly sliced
    2cm fresh root ginger, sliced into matchsticks
    handful coriander, roughly chopped
    ½ tbsp sesame seeds, toasted, to serve 


    1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan; add the onions and a pinch of salt. Cook over a medium heat for about 10 minutes, until soft and browned. Meanwhile, soak the noodles according to pack instructions. Steam the broccoli for 3-4 minutes, until tender. Mix together the soya sauce, vinegar and cornflour with 2 tbsp water.

    2. Turn the heat to high, season the beef and add to the pan along with the ginger; stir-fry for 2-3 minutes until browned. Add the soya-shaoxing mixture and stir-fry for another minute, until the liquid has reduced to a thin syrupy sauce.

    3. Put the noodles on 2 plates; top with the broccoli. Spoon over the beef and scatter with the coriander and sesame seeds.
