Delicious recipe, I have added other vegetables to this dish such as Mange-tout and depending how I feel I won't always add noodles etc, you can make this recipe your own I know I do

  2. 2 red chillies, deseeded and chopped
  3. 2tbsp freshly chopped coriander, plus extra to garnish
  4. 1cm (½in) piece root ginger, grated
  5. 1 x 500g pack minced beef steak
  6. 1tbsp sunflower oil

  3. Divide the mixture roughly and using your hands, shape the mixture into meatballs only small ones.
  4. Heat the sunflower oil in a large frying pan and fry the meatballs, do this in batches if needed, for about 5-8 minutes until golden all over. Meanwhile, pour the beef stock into a large saucepan and bring to a gentle simmer.

  6. Bring the broth to the boil and simmer for 4 minutes until the noodles and vegetables have softened and the meatballs are cooked through.
