Beef Chow Fun

I actually used bison in this rather than beef as that's what I had in the freezer. It was a very tasty stir fry. I also chopped up my own veggies rather than using pre-packed stuff but I thought that would make it easier for everyone. Quick and easy to make.

Beef Chow Fun (adapted from Gimme Some Oven)
(Serves 4)

200g rice noodles
2 tbsp oil
2 steaks, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 onion, sliced
2 packs stir fry veg
4 spring onions, sliced into 2-inch pieces
1 tsp sesame oil
salt and white pepper, to taste

3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp light soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
2 tsp grated peeled fresh ginger ( or ½ teaspoon dry ginger)
1 tsp sriracha
1 tsp cornflour

Whisk together all the marinade ingredients in a small bowl. Pour half the marinade onto the beef and toss to combine. Cover and refrigerate for at least 10 mins, or up to 8 hours. Refrigerate the second half of the marinade as well.

Cook the noodles according to packet instructions.

When you're ready to cook the dish, heat oil in a large frying pan over a high heat. Remove the beef from its marinade and add it to the pan. cook for 1-2 mins until starting to turn brown. Set aside on a plate.

In the hot pan, add the onions and stir fry veg and stir fry for 2-3 mins, stirring occasionally. Add the second half of the marinade, the noodles and the beef to the pan. Stir fry for 1 min. Add the spring onions and sesame oil and stir fry for 1 more min. Season and serve.
