15 minute peanut butter and chilli noodles

an easy, quick, combination of peanut butter, chilli sauce, and soy sauce - creates this delicious Thai inspired noodle dish.  This is one recipe I will be making more than once!  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. 

serves 3-4
recipe ready in 15 minutes (or less if you are really quick and not using meat!)
250g egg noodles
1 bag stir fry vegetables (I used about 400g size)
300g minced beef (but you can use pork, prawns, chicken, tofu, extra veg - it's up to you)
1 tbs oil
3 tbs peanut butter (I like crunchy for the texture but smooth is OK)
3 tbs soya sauce
3 tbs sweet chilli sauce
6 tbs boiled water
optional sauce extras:
crushed garlic
grated ginger
lime zest
optional toppings:
sesame seeds
lime segment
chilli flakes
chopped mint/coriander
chopped peanuts
sliced spring onions

  • mix all the sauce ingredients together and leave to one side while you prepare everything else
  • turn on frying pan and when hot carefully add oil and fry beef (or other ingredient of choice) for approx 10 minutes on a high heat. Make sure meat is hot and completely cooked through.
  • at the same time add noodles to a pan and carefully pour over boiled water to soften (follow packet instructions as noodles take different amounts of time).
  • drain when cooked and leave to one side
  • when the beef (etc....) is cooked add the stir fry veg mix and fry for a minute on a high heat.
  • add the noodles to the pan with the stir fry and meat and pour over the sauce mix
  • heat through for a couple of minutes
  • serve with optional toppings - I used chopped mint, chilli flakes, sesame seeds and lime segments
  • enjoy your super quick and tasty noodles ready in only 15 minutes!
