A stir fry is just the thing for a quick and easy dinner, and this dish uses straight to wok noodles to make it even simpler. If you like, swap the beef for chicken, pork, tofu or serve with salmon fillets.
Angela Hartnett cooked this recipe for Nick Grimshaw and guest Phil Wang on episode 17, season 2 of Dish, the Waitrose podcast. Dish is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts.

Heat 1 tbsp oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. When hot, fry the beef for 2 minutes until just cooked through. Tip out of the pan and set aside. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in the pan and fry the mushrooms and salad onions for 2 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger, broccoli and a good grind of black pepper and fry for 1 minute.

Shaoxing is a fermented rice wine that is commonly used in Chinese cooking and has a sweet and savoury flavour. You can use dry sherry as a substitute or chicken stock for a non-alcoholic option.
