Beef and glass noodle stir fry

Beef and glass noodle stir fry





  • 200g glass noodles
  • 2 tsp peanut oil
  • 2 tsp ginger, finely grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp caster sugar
  • 1/2 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 150g shitake oysters, sliced
  • 1 bunch choy sum, washed and trimmed
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and cut into batons
  • 1 white onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 500g rump steak, thinly sliced across the grain


Place the glass noodles in a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water. Give the noodles a stir to ensure they are all submerged. Allow the noodles to soften for 5 minutes and then drain off the water. Cover the noodles.

Combine the soy sauce, lemon juice and sugar in a small bowl and stir until the sugar dissolves. Set side.

Heat a wok on high and add half the peanut oil. Once it starts smoking, add the beef strips turn contstantly until browned – you may want to do this in two batches. Remove the beef from the wok.

Add the rest of the oil to the wok and once hot, add the onion, garlic and ginger. Stir for two minutes and then add the beef back into the wok. Cook for another two minutes before adding the vegetables and the sauce. Toss the ingredients in the wok for another two minutes and then take off the heat.

Add the noodles into the wok and stir through to combine. Serve immediately.
