Ginger Beef and Broccoli stir fry


Serves 2 adults and 2 little people

I’m really loving ginger at the moment and I’m keen to get my children to eat lots of different flavours so this is a good recipe to try ginger out on them, it only takes 20 minutes so if they’re not that keen you haven’t wasted much time!

First steam a large handful of purple sprouting broccoli in the microwave for 2 minutes, this should leave it still firm to bite.

Next, slice 250g of flank beef steak into finger sized strips and season with salt, pepper, a teaspoon of ground coriander and a glug of olive oil.

This would be a good time to get some egg noodles boiling, so cook these according to packet instructions.

Finely slice a small red onion, crush a clove of garlic and grate or finely chop a piece of root ginger the size of your index and middle fingers, – yes a pretty decent chunk! You can use less if you’d prefer

Heat a splash of olive oil in a pan on a high heat and fry the onion,  garlic and ginger for a couple of minutes until the onions soften then add the beef. Continue to fry for a couple of minutes then add the steamed broccoli and stir for a further two minutes. Finally add a tablespoon of soy sauce, a teaspoon of sesame oil and fry for another minute. 

Drain then toss the noodles in a teaspoon of sesame oil, serve the beef stir fry on top and, if you have some, a squeeze of lime juice makes a big difference
