Beef Stirfry with Udon Noodles

I love to cook stirfries, as they are quick to cook and are a great way to include a lot of vegetables in dinner (including using up any odds and ends in the fridge at the end of the week). For some variation, make a stirfry with noodles.

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2

1 tbsp oil
300g stir fry beef (or slice some cheap, boneless steak)
200g baby corn (can be canned), halved
1 small carrot, sliced
2 shallots, sliced
200g udon noodles, strands separated
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 tsp sesame oil
Sesame seeds, to serve

Heat half the oil in a wok over high heat. Once smoking hot, add the beef and stir fry for 2 minutes, or until just cooked through. Remove.

Re-heat the wok with the remaining oil. Add the corn and carrot, and stir fry for 2-3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the shallots and cook for a further 30 seconds. Add the noodles, soy sauce and oyster sauce, and stir-fry for 1 minute or until all combined. Re-add the beef plus the sesame oil, and mix until heated through.

Serve sprinkled with sesame seeds.
