Easy Crispy chilli beef

Easy Crispy chilli beef with noodles

A lovely authentic recipe for  easy crispy chilli beef with noodles and it’s  sooooooo flipping easy.

So, ask yourself – why would you go to the takeaway?

This is a real  Fakeaway, I promise!

And you are in control of all the ingredients, timings, temperatures  and it must be much healthier than from the takeaway!

You know that really crispy also crunch fatty stuff from the takeaway – well this is a whole heap better. Freshly made and authentic

It’s totally packed with flavour from the Chinese 5 Spice, ginger and garlic!

It’s a real change from other suppers and sometimes a change is as good as a rest hey! It’s a firm favourite in this house!

And don’t worry too much about the cut of beef, I have suggested sirloin or rump but any will do, whatever you fancy.

And you don’t have to get your car out the garage and hang about for 30 minutes waiting in the takeaway!

Have a go and let me know how you get on with this delightful chilli beef  dish, please do drop me a comment under the recipe. I love to get your comments

If you like a little spice I think you may also like my Lamb Koftas 

Thanks Cx
