Water for the Sauce
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/4 tsp salt for the noodles.
Halve the bell pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips.
Trim and halve the green beans.
Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
Once hot, add the beef mince and sliced pepper. Stir-fry until the mince has browned and the pepper has softened, 5-6 mins.
Use a spoon to break up the mince as it cooks, then drain and discard any excess fat. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
Meanwhile, add the noodles and green beans to your pan of boiling water. Cook until tender, 4 mins.
Once cooked, drain in a colander and run under cold water to stop the noodles sticking together and keep the beans vibrant.
In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, ketjap manis, honey, tomato ketchup and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts). TIP: If your honey has hardened, pop it in a bowl of hot water for 1 min.
Once the beef mince has browned and the pepper has started to soften, add the garlic and stir-fry for 1 min.
Once cooked, add the noodles and beans to the frying pan.
Pour in the sticky sauce and stir together.
Cook until everything's piping hot, 2-3 mins, then remove from the heat. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Share the Asian beef noodles between your serving bowls.
Finish with a sprinkling of roasted sesame seeds for those who'd like them.
