A super easy beef stir fry made with egg noodles, fresh seasonal vegetables and a homemade sauce. Ready in 15 minutes.
Some nights you need dinner on the table FAST. Maybe you've been racing around all day, maybe you're just really hangry. I get it! On those nights, my Beef Noodle Stir Fry is the meal for you.
Such a simple and fast meal, yet it still packs a good punch in the flavour department. I buy the pre-sliced beef strips to speed up the process. However, you could slice up your own from beef steaks if you prefer.
How to make Beef Noodle Stir Fry:
To begin, place all of the stir fry sauce ingredients in a glass jug and whisk to combine. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large non-stick fry pan then brown the beef for a couple of minutes on each side. Remove from the pan while you cook the vegetables.
Add the chopped vegetables to the pan and stir fry with a splash of water for three minutes. Add the noodles and cooked beef back to the pan then pour over the stir fry sauce.
Cook everything together for 2 minutes until hot and cooked through. Sprinkle over sesame seeds and serve immediately.

Common questions about Beef Noodle Stir Fry:
What other vegetables could I use? I like to use seasonal fresh vegetables. Depending on the time of year you could add in or substitute carrot, cauliflower, red onion, mushroom, bok choy, sugar snaps etc.
Can I swap the noodles out? Yes! You could also use vermicelli, pad thai noodles or plain rice if you prefer.
