Quick Ginger Beef Noodles
For my Quick Ginger Beef Noodles, all you need is one wok (or deep frying pan) and a saucepan.
A tasty and yes, healthy, mid-week dinner recipe.
This dish was influenced by Jamie Oliver’s new book ‘Everyday Super Food’. Although his recipe was good, I had to amend it to my own liking / make it better (for my taste buds)!
Do the same with all my recipes as they are only here to inspire you to create your own dish too. Make it vegetarian by adding crispy tofu or jackfruit instead of beef.
If you love a 30-minute meal, you should definitely check out my quick lemon and parsley crispy cod recipe.

Top 3 Ginger Top Facts
- Adding Ginger at the beginning of cooking will lend a subtle flavour to your meal, while added near the end, it will deliver a more pungent fiery taste.
- Combine ginger, soy sauce, olive oil, chilli and lime to make a simple Asian dressing.
- Ginger can not only be warming on a cold day but can help promote healthy sweating, which is often helpful during colds and flu.
1. Finely chop the garlic and slice the spring onion, coriander and chilli - deseed the chilli seeds and keep for the dressing).
2. To make the dressing, in a small bowl add half the ginger, honey, seeds from the chilli (for heat). Next add the fish sauce, soy sauces and white wine vinegar and mix well. Taste it and amend to your desire.
Wok It Baby!
1. Add the coconut oil and the Chinese 5-spice powder into a wok or non-stick frying pan on a medium heat. Then add the mince meat, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon, followed by the garlic, ginger and honey.
2. Meanwhile, cook the noodles according to the packet instructions. If you fancy my salad option, add 1/4 red cabbage, 6-8 broccolini and 10-12 sugar snap peas in with the noodle to soften for 4-6 minutes.
3. Then drain and the noodles and veg and place on the plate. Followed by a healthy drizzling of the homemade dressing, sprinkle over the crispy ginger beef and your topping choice. Grab your chopsticks; it's time to tuck in!
BIFF, BOSH, NOSH!
