  • Prep

    10 mins

  • Cooking

    30 mins




  • 500g Brisbane Valley Farm Direct garlic, soy and sesame beef strips
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • A half teaspoon Chinese 5 spice
  • A quarter teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup beef stock
  • 2 tablespoon reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 1-2 tablespoons honey or light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • A half teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil (for cooking)
  • 500g medium egg noodles
  • 1 cup snow peas, sliced in half across
  • A half cup sliced carrots
  • 8 spring onions, sliced
  • A half tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tsp grated fresh ginger


Step 1

Heat vegetable oil until hot in wok or large skillet. While this is heating, boil the jug and in a large bowl, soak the noodles in lightly salted boiling water.

Step 2

Take beef strips out of marinade and cook but don’t discard (marinade is used later).

TIP: Depending on size of the wok/pan, cooking beef strips may need to be done in batches. The wok/pan must be very hot and not overloaded to avoid boiling strips as it will taste rubbery. Cooking the strips should only require a couple of minutes and is better slightly undercooked.

Step 3

Remove cooked strips from heat. Rinse wok/pan and heat remaining vegetable oil, then add peas, carrots and spring onion and cook, stirring often (2-3 minutes). Remove from heat once veg has sweated.

Step 4

Whisk together stock, soy sauce, honey/brown sugar, rice vinegar, garlic, sesame oil, fresh ginger, cornstarch, and chilli flakes. Add leftover marinade from cryo-packaging and heat in wok/pan. Marindade/sauce will thicken. TIP: Add cornstarch to thicken marinade/sauce if required.

Step 5

Combine strips , veg and reduced marinade. Add Chinese 5 spice and. Finally, stir in cooked noodles. 

Step 6

To serve: Add some chopped parsley and chilli flakes! Season with salt and pepper.
