Sweet Chilli BBQ Beef on Noodles

Inspired by a recent trip to a "Every Asian cuisine under the same roof" restaurant, I decided to give this simple dish ago. It was supposed to be a Vietnamese sort of dish, but this recipe was wayyy too far from the original to be categorized into Vietnamese food. Still, it was good fun experimenting with sauces and frying the beef on my grill pan.

I used noodles that resembled pad thai-mainly because that was what I have in hand. What I like about this grilled beef is that the sauce went really well with the noodles-almost like a gravy style noodle dish rather than a stir fry or soup.

Will I give it a go again? Certainly! Maybe even with chicken or seafood!

Sweet Chilli BBQ Beef on Noodles
300 grams of lean beef (or heart smart steaks)
sea salt

1 red onion
2 generous tablespoons of sweet chili
1 tsp of fish sauce
2 tsp of sesame oil

Flat noodles blanched
bean sprouts blanched
1/4 cup of cashews

1) Season beef with sea salt liberally. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels. Cut it in cubes (This will help tenderise the beef). Marinate with sauces.

2) Cut red onion up. Heat up grill pan and grill onions. When pan is really hot, stir fry beef! Add some stock if needed to create gravy.

3) Serve mixture on top of noodles. Sprinkle cashews on it.

I'm dishing this out on Presto Pasta! Founded by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast. This week, it is hosted by Food Hunter's guide to cuisine.

I love the addition of cashew nuts, baby (expensive here though)

I love the looks of it. A great dish whatever ethnic group - or mix of them it belongs to.

Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Night. It's always a treat when you do.
