1

Bring a large saucepan of water to the boil. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Finely grate the ginger. Thinly slice the carrot (unpeeled) into half-moons. Trim and halve the green beans. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Roughly chop the coriander. In a medium bowl, combine the Sichuan sauce, soy sauce, brown sugar and rice wine vinegar.

Add the udon noodles (see ingredients list) to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until just tender, 8-10 minutes. Drain and refresh under cold water.

While the noodles are cooking, heat a drizzle of olive oil in a large frying pan or wok over a high heat. When the oil is hot, add 1/2 the beef strips and cook until browned and cooked through, 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Repeat with the remaining beef strips. TIP: Cooking the meat in batches over a high heat helps it stay tender.

Return the frying pan or wok to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Add the carrot, green beans and a splash of water and cook, tossing, until just tender, 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and Asian greens and cook until just wilted, 1 minute.
