Recipe

  1. Remember to defrost your meat. Defrost your meat in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on ‘defrost’ directly before use. 

    This recipe works perfectly with frozen meat. Check what you have in your freezer and defrost meat thoroughly before cooking. If using defrosted cooked meat, you can only reheat this meat once so only cook what you can eat.
  2. Add ½ the oil to a wok or non-stick frying pan. Brown the mince and set aside. 

  3. Add the rest of the oil to the pan with the garlic, spices and chopped vegetables.

  4. Stir-fry for a few minutes, then add the soy sauce. Combine the stir-fry mix with the cooked noodles. Serve immediately.
