Beef Chow Mein

If you wanted a Chinese takeaway without the calories and guilt, read on!

This is excellent to use as a meal for four (think Friday night in with your friends or family) , or as a 4 day meal prep for one :).

Let me know how you get on!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time : 15 minutes


· Half a thumb sized piece of ginger, finely sliced

· One clove of garlic , finely sliced

· 2 carrots, sliced

· 1 red onion, sliced

· 2 Red peppers , sliced

· 1 beef stock cube

· 3 Nests of fine egg noodles

· 400g packet of Bean sprouts

· 400g Beef Strips- a lean cut of steak would work fine but this would obviously make prep time a bit longer

· 10ml vegetable oil

· 3 tbsp of Oyster Sauce

· 1 tbsp Light Soy sauce

1. Boil noodles as per instructions on packet. Once drained, add a splash of soy sauce

2. Heat a wok over a high heat and put in the ginger and garlic. Stir fry for one minute, then reduce the heat slightly and add the beef, stir frying as per the packet instructions- this should take about 4 minutes.

3. Once this is done remove the ginger, garlic and beef from the pan, and add the carrots; stir fry these for about 2 minutes

4. Add the pepper and the red onion. Stir fry for another 3 minutes.

5. Add the bean sprouts for a further 2 minutes

6. Add back in the steak and the noodles, crumble in the stock cube and add the oyster sauce, and mix in well for another 1-2 minutes.

7. Season with salt and pepper , and serve
