Honey Chilli Beef Noodles

A delicious, easy fakeaway that’s healthier than your average take-out noodles.

This is a quick and lean version of one of my favourite local Chinese takeaway dishes, and one of the most popular recipes I have ever shared with my online followers.

Serves 3

  • 400g beef steaks, thinly sliced
  • 4 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 5 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp rice vinegar
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 3 tbsp orange juice
  • 4 tbsp honey
  • 2 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp cornflour, mixed to a paste with 1 tbsp water
  • 1 red pepper, sliced
  • 200g dried egg noodles
  • 350ml hot chicken stock
  • chopped spring onions and sesame seeds, to garnish


Place all the ingredients, except the red pepper, noodles and stock, in the slow cooker and stir. Cook on high for 2 hours. Add the red pepper, noodles and stock, stir and cook for another 15–20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes. Garnish with spring onions and sesame seeds.
