- Boil a large pot of salted water for the egg noodles.
- When the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook until softened, 4-6 mins. Drain in a sieve.
- Return to the pot with a splash of oil. Toss to prevent sticking, cover and set aside.
TIP: If you’re in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.
- Halve, peel and thinly slice the onion.
- Halve the bell pepper, remove the core and seeds and thinly slice.
- Trim the courgette and slice into thick 1cm rounds.
- Peel and finely grate the ginger, roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
- Zest half the lime (double for 4p) then cut into halves.
- Heat a pan on medium-high heat (no oil).
- When hot, add the courgette and cook until charred, 6-8 mins. Turn only every few mins. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from the pan and set aside.
- Return the pan to a medium-high heat. Add the beef mince and fry until browned, 5-6 mins. Use a spoon to break it up as it cooks. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw mince.
- When the mince is browned, lower the heat then add the onion and pepper. Cook until softened, 6-8 mins, stirring occasionally. IMPORTANT: The mince is cooked when no longer pink in the middle.
- Next add the ginger, Thai style spice mix and the chicken stock and 100ml water (double for 4p)
- Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half, 4-5 mins.
- Season to taste with salt and pepper.
- When the beef is ready stir through the ketjap manis, courgetter rounds, half the lime zest and half the coriander. Add lime juice to taste.
- Remove from the heat, taste and add salt and pepper if you like.
- Share the noodles between your bowls and serve the beef on top.
- Finish with a sprinkle of the remaining coriander and lime zest.
