The traditional beef steak is a good, hearty meal fit for any occasion – but what do you do when you want to mix things up a bit?
Everyone knows the Chinese make some hot, zesty and flavourful food, and most of it is fabulously easy to cook up.
A case in point is beef chow mein. You might have seen this name on the menu board at the local takeaway, but preparing it at home is easy, delicious and rewarding.
Cooking it in your own kitchen with your grass-fed beef is healthier too. Natural meat is free from chemicals and additives, and you won’t have to put up with things like MSG you’d find in your usual takeaway fare!
All you need is some organic beef, cooking oil, soy sauce, two cloves of crushed garlic, egg noodles and all the vegetables you desire.
Simply begin by heating a splash of oil in the saucepan over a medium heat and add the garlic, lightly toasting it until soft.
In the meantime, boil the egg noodles in a separate pan of water if you bought them dry, or place them in a bowl of hot water to soften them if you have the fresh variety.
Slice the beef into thick strips and add it to the pan, making sure you check the packaging to see how long you should cook it for.
When the beef is almost done, toss your vegetables into the mix along with the noodles, and spend about three to five minutes stir-frying everything together.
Stir in the soy sauce just before you finish, and there you have it – an authentic oriental dish with all the benefits of organic meat!
