Chinese BBQ Steak with Broccoli and Coriander Stir Fry – what you need to do:

1. Firstly, combine all the Chinese BBQ Steak sauce/marinade ingredients into a bowl and mix thoroughly. Put the steaks into the sauce and leave to marinate anywhere from 30 mins to 24 hours. If marinating for longer than 30 mins be sure to cover and put in fridge and remove from fridge up to 30 mins before cooking.

2. Once marinated, remove the steaks (keep the rest of the marinade for later) and cook on the BBQ or griddle pan over high heat for approx. 2 mins each side for medium, depending on the thickness of the steaks. Adjust cooking time accordingly if you like it rarer or more well done. Once cooked, remove steaks from heat and leave to rest on a warm plate, loosely covered with foil – this is to ensure you don’t lose any delicious juices during resting!

3. Whilst the steaks are resting, if using dried noodles add them to a saucepan of boiling water with a dash of sesame oil, stir and simmer for approx. 2 minutes then drain. If using fresh, just add them straight into the wok, as in step 4 below.

4. Whilst the noodles are cooking, get your wok nice and hot and add the groundnut oil followed by the broccoli, ginger, onion and carrot – stir immediately and keep moving around the wok until they are coated in the oil and start to soften without burning. It should sizzle loudly! Now add the soy, oyster and Worcester sauce. Keep stir frying for approx. 3-5 minutes then add the cooked noodles, using tongs to mix it all together. The veg should still have a crunch and the noodles soft.

5. Serve the noodles into warm bowls and put the remaining steak marinade into the wok to heat through. Slice the steak and place on top of the noodles followed by any remaining juices and the rest of the marinade from the wok. Finally drizzle a little sesame oil over the top, add a generous amount of coriander and garnish with a wedge of lime.
