This healthy beef chow-mein is a quick and easy way to replace your weekly take-out.


  • 2 wholemeal noodles nests (85g).
  • 2 teaspoons sesame or rapeseed oil
  • 200g lean fillet steak. Remove the fat and slice into strips
  • 1 small red onion (100g), finely chopped
  • 15g ginger cut into pieces and finely chopped
  • 160g of chestnut mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped finely
  • 160g ready-to-eat beansprouts
  • 1 1/2 tsp tamari
  • 1 tbsp brown vinegar
  • 4 spring onions (65g), cut in diagonal lengths


1. Follow the instructions on the pack to cook the noodles. Heat half of the oil in a wok. Once the noodles are cooked, stir-fry the beef for 30 seconds on high heat until it is browned. Transfer the beef to a plate and set it aside. The remaining oil can be added to the wok. Stir fry the ginger and onion until softened. To prevent burning, add a little water and cover the pan for 2 to 3 minutes.

2. Stir in the garlic and mushrooms, and fry for 3 minutes. Add the beansprouts to the pan and cook for another minute until the beans are hot.

3. In a small bowl, combine the vinegar and tamari with 2 tbsp of water. Toss the noodles with the vinegar and 2 tbsp water in a bowl. Next, add the tamari mixture, spring onion, and beef to the wok. Stir fry for a few more minutes to heat through. Add plenty of black pepper to the mixture and stir-fry until well combined.
