Beef noodles: they sometimes get a bad rap for being a bit bland, a bit grey, a bit chewy. Well, enough, says me. These recipes of mine will change your mind forever more. I’m promising charry beef mince atop bouncy, glorious noods. Or tender, silky strips of steak that almost dissolve on your tongue in a moment of umami bliss. From fast and furious stir-fries to slow and steady one-pot wonders, there’s something for everyone. (Except maybe vegetarians.)
Pop your phone on silent and ignore any interruptions – this is one dinner that deserves to be savoured in all its glory.

Toasted Sichuan peppercorns are the key to this easy stir-fry. Using ground beef cuts down on prep time, and you can do all the remaining prep while the noodles are cooking for an easy 15-minute weeknight meal that’s full of flavour.
A classic street-food bowl of deliciousness with a fragrant broth. The soup is simmered slowly for an hour and a half, so it’s great for cheap cuts of beef such as chuck steak that need longer cooking times. Add fresh vegies and noodles at the end of the cooking time. It’s a one-pot wonder!
This is the kind of dish that comes together really quickly for a delicious weeknight meal. Using minced (ground) beef means it’s cooked in no time, and the broccoli is quickly stir-fried through to add pops of bright colour. Udon noodles are the perfect accompaniment.
