one wok wonder. i love to cook, but i’m not a fan of cleaning up the mess in the kitchen afterwards. :) so i thought i’d take the challenge of cooking up a meal in one pot or pan to keep it simple. wok this way…

the beef:
– heat up 2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil in large wok on medium heat
– add 2 sprigs of green onions (rooted stems removed, rough chop into sliced rounds)
– add 250g beef stirfry strips to wok
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– add a dash of sea salt
– season w/ chinese five-spice
– stirfry beef until partially cooked

the cashews & veggies:
in the same wok, add the following ingredients to the stirfry beef:
– 2 cups broccoli (ends trimmed, chopped into small florets)
– splash of water
– 1/2 orange bell pepper (pitted, sliced)
– 1/2 yellow bell pepper (pitted, sliced)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– stirfry for 1-2min
– then add 1 cup crimini mushrooms (sliced)
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– stirfry ingredients together in wok until well combined

the noodles:
– soak 400g brown rice noodles in a shallow bowl w/ warm water for 8-10min, or until noodles are slightly tender
– drain water from noodles in a colander
– add noodles to other ingredients in wok
– drizzle 2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
– sprinkle a handful of unsalted cashews
– stirfry noodles w/ other ingredients until well combined, and the beef is cooked

(tip: do not overcook noodles or let the noodles go soggy.)

food styling:
– dish up noodles in a serving bowl w/ plenty of veggies, beef & cashews on top
– season w/ ground black peppercorns
– pairs nicely w/ chilled ginger ale

  1. Yum, yum, yum. What a great looking stir fry.
