Water for the Sauce
Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil with 1/2 tsp salt. Peel and grate the ginger. Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press). Pop the ginger and garlic into a bowl with the soy sauce and sweet chilli sauce. Stir together, then add the beef strips and stir to combine. Leave to the side to marinate. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw meat.
While the beef marinates, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Slice into thin strips. Trim the carrot, then halve lengthways (no need to peel). Thinly slice widthways. Trim and thinly slice the spring onion.
When your pan of water is boiling, add the noodles and cook until tender, 4 mins. Once cooked, drain in a colander. Refill your saucepan (off the heat) with cold water and pop in the noodles. TIP: This stops them from cooking further.
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat. Once your oil is really hot, add the beef strips (leaving any marinade in your bowl) and fry until browned on the outside, 2-3 mins, stirring occasionally. Remove the beef and any juices from the pan into a clean bowl.
Add another drizzle of oil to your (now empty) pan if it's dry, then add the pepper, carrot and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir-fry until the veggies are softened, 5-6 mins. Add any leftover marinade and half the spring onion to your pan, stir and cook for 2 mins. Add the beef (and any juices) back in as well, along with the sesame seeds. Stir and cook until piping hot, 2 mins. IMPORTANT: The beef is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
Add the cooked noodles, ketjap manis and water for the sauce (see ingredients for amount) to your pan, stir together to combine well and cook until the noodles are piping hot, 2 mins. Divide the sweet chilli beef noodles between your bowls and sprinkle over the remaining spring onion. Enjoy!
