As you know, I love a quick and easy dinner. When it’s hot outside I want something simple and healthy. This teriyaki marinade works well with beef, chicken or salmon.
I much prefer to make a stir fry with fresh individual ingredients rather than a bag of standard stir fry mix. It just tastes a lot better and full of crunchy loveliness. The lime adds a fresh zing.
2 sirloin steaks
2 glugs sesame oil
Stir Fry sauce
2 tablespoons teriyaki sauce
1 tablespoon dark soy sauce
2 cloves garlic – minced
Juice of 1/2 a lime
1 teaspoon honey
1 nest of noodles
Salt and cracked black pepper to season
1 cup mange tout
1 cup mini corn – chopped
1/2 red pepper
1 small carrot – thinly sliced
2 cabbage leaves
1/2 tin water chestnuts – drained
Firstly mix up your sauce and set aside.
Add your noodles to a pan of boiling water.
Rub your steaks with a little oil and slice into thin strips about 1cm thick, removing any fat.
Chop all your veg into smallish pieces.
Heat your wok and pan fry your steak over a high heat for a couple of minutes adding a tablespoon of the stir fry sauce.
Add a drizzle more oil and put in your vegetables and pan fry until slightly softened but still crisp to bite. This should take about 5 minutes or so.
Once your noodles are cooked, drain them and add a teaspoon of sesame oil to loosen. Tip them into the mix and then add the stir fry sauce ensuring all the ingredients are fully coated.
