Sesame Beef Stir Fry

P1020640

When I was growing up, broccoli seemed almost exotic. Our family didn’t eat broccoli at this stage and I always enjoyed it when I had dinner at my best friend’s house. Years later, the novelty hasn’t worn off but I enjoy broccoli for different reasons. I love how it only takes a few minutes to steam and how sauce gets stuck in its little finger bits (I’m sure they have a name, any ideas anyone?!).

This quick recipe is based on the Sesame Beef & Noodles by Women’s Weekly. I have simplified the method a little bit, added more broccoli (yum) and used dried rice noodles instead of fresh rice noodles because they are a lot easier to find and super cheap too. I like that this recipe doesn’t have  a lot of ingredients.
