Simple homemade supper: Egg Noodles w/ Spicy Minced Beef

Chinese cooking can be oh-so-easy. This is my idea of a lazy, post-work, couldn’t-be-bother dinner.


  • Egg noodles
  • Minced beef (or pork or chicken)
  • Spring onion
  • Chilli (optional)
  • Black pepper
  • Garlic
  • Sesame oil
  • Oyster sauce
  • Sugar (optional)

Instructions: 1. Stir fry the garlic and chilli in a wok / pot (whatever you have) 2. Add the minced beef to the wok, add oyster sauce, black pepper to taste 3. Once the beef is almost cooked, add a pinch sugar, the spring onion and a drizzle of sesame oil, continue to stir fry. 4. Meanwhile, soften the egg noodles in boiling water (just follow instructions on the packet. It usually takes about 3-4 mins) 5. Strain the noodles, serve it with the saucy minced beef stir through to coat the noodles. 6. Eat!
