10-minute ‘instant’ beef chilli noodles

I woke up feeling dire this morning, and all I wanted was something quick, easy and dare I say it, a little trashy. I mean instant noodles, the only processed food I sometimes have a craving for.

This was the next best thing. Meaty, filling and full of flavour, minus the MSG and other nasties. And best of all, ready in 10 minutes!

10-minute ‘instant’ beef chilli noodles

Flat rice noodles
1 large ribeye steak
Soy sauce
1 tbsp chilli jam
A splash raspberry vinegar
1 tsp sesame oil

Cut steak into bite sized pieces. Stir in soy sauce, chilli jam and raspberry vinegar and marinade whilst the noodles are soaking. Meanwhile prepare the noodles according to packet instructions (soak in boiling water until soft).

In a wok heat a little rapeseed oil, add steak and brown the meat before adding the noodles, stir frying until everything is nicely tossed.

So simple I can get back to more important things. Like lying on the sofa with the dog and catching up on some telly. You could probably add some vegetables and fresh chillies if you’re feeling a little less lazy than I was this morning…
