Fresh ginger, garlic, zesty lime and crunchy veg in this sizzling beef stir-fry pick up all the incredible flavours from the beef, making this dish a real weeknight winner. When stir-frying beef, a top tip from our chefs is not to overcrowd the frying pan or wok. Instead, make sure the pan is really nice and hot and cook the beef in batches to prevent the meat from stewing. In the last couple of minutes, stir the noodles through the beef to coat them in all the delicious flavours.

Put your kettle on to boil. Trim the green beans then chop into thirds. Halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. Zest the lime then cut into wedges. Peel and grate the ginger. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
Heat a splash of oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the beef mince and stir-fry until browned, 6-8 mins. Break it up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. When the beef is cooked, transfer to a bowl and set to one side. Keep the pan!
In the meantime, pop the boiled water into a large saucepan over high heat. Bring back to the boil then cook the noodles for 4 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander and run under cold water to stop them from sticking together.
Return the now empty frying pan to medium heat, adding another splash of oil if dry. Once hot, add the pepper, green beans and a small splash of water to help them cook. Stir-fry for 4-5 mins until tender. Stir in the ginger and garlic. Cook for 1 minute then stir in the soy sauce and sugar (see ingredients for amount).
Add the beef back into the pan and stir in the noodles. Toss to coat and continue to cook until piping hot, 2-3 mins. Once hot, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the lime zest, juice from half the lime and half the coriander. Taste and add a pinch of salt and pepper if necessary.
Divide the noodles between your bowls and sprinkle over the remaining coriander. Serve with the remaining wedges of lime on the side to squeeze on top! Enjoy!
