Spicy Beef Sambal Noodles

PREP TIME
10 minutes
COOK TIME
25 minutes
SERVES
4
Ingredients

2 tbsp vegetable oil 

500g (1 lb) beef mince 

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped 

1 onion, finely diced 

4 tomatoes, diced 

375g (13 oz) dried rice stick noodles 

finely sliced spring onion (scallions), to serve 

chilli flakes, to serve (optional) 

 

Stir-fry sauce: 

3 tbsp oyster sauce 

2 tbsp sambal oelek or Chinese chilli garlic paste 

2 tsp dark sweet soy sauce 

Steps
  • Step 1

    For the stir-fry sauce, mix the ingredients in a small bowl. 

  • Step 2

    Heat the vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the beef and spread it out in the pan. Leave it to sear for 5-6 minutes or until very darkly coloured. Then mix and break up the beef with your spatula. Now add the garlic and onion and stir-fry for another 2 minutes. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 15 minutes. 

  • Step 3

    In the meantime, cook the noodles until just al dente. If the sauce is not ready, rinse them under cold running water to stop them cooking. If the sauce is ready, transfer them straight into the sauce. 

  • Step 4

    Toss the cooked noodles through the sauce. Divide among serving bowls and sprinkle with spring onions and chilli flakes, if using

This way so easy to make, quick and super tasty. I popped a fried egg on top and let the yolk ooze over it delicious. Thanks Marion, another great dish.

This was absolutely amazing and so easy to make. I used chopped tomatoes from a can since I didn’t have any fresh ones, worked just fine. Just used a bit more Sambal Oelek.

I got lost following this recipe as I got to the end and still had the stir fry sauce 😂… I’m one of those “by the recipe” weirdo’s because I’m an eater and not a cook 😜 Once I realized my mistake I just threw the stir fry sauce in with the tomato meat mixture and wa-lah magic 😜
