    Fragrant beef noodle soup

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 15 minutes
    • Total time: 30 minutes 30 minutes

    Serves: 2


    100g Thai Taste Rice Noodles
    2 x Kallo Organic Very Low Salt Beef Stock Cubes
    1 small onion, finely chopped
    3cm piece root ginger, peeled and thickly sliced
    1 red chilli, seeded and thinly sliced
    1 cinnamon stick
    1 star anise
    230g frying steak, trimmed of any visible fat
    ½ x 300g pack beansprouts
    235g pack Waitrose Green Pak Choi, thickly sliced
    2 tbsp fresh coriander leaves
    1 lime, cut into wedges, to serve


    1. Place the noodles in a large bowl, cover with a kettleful of boiling water and leave to soak for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice to make sure the noodles don’t stick together.

    2. While the noodles are soaking, place the stock cubes, onion, ginger, chilli, cinnamon, star anise and 750ml boiling water in a large pan and bring back to the boil. Simmer for 10 minutes.

    3. Meanwhile, cook the steak in a non-stick frying or griddle pan for 2–3 minutes on each side, until nicely browned but still a little pink in the centre. Transfer to a plate, let it rest for 5 minutes, then slice thinly.

    4. Stir the beansprouts and pak choi into the broth and cook for 2 minutes or so until the vegetables are tender.

    5. Drain the noodles and divide between 2 bowls. Ladle over the broth and vegetables then top with the sliced beef and coriander. Serve with lime wedges for squeezing over.

    Cook’s tip

    The steak can be swapped for 150g raw king prawns. Stir into the soup 2 minutes before adding the beansprouts and pak choi and ensure they are cooked through before serving.
