Ingredients

  • 500g Quality Mark beef mince
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 350g chow mein noodles or asian noodles
  • 2 teaspoons cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 bunch bok choy / baby pak choy or cabbage, leaves separated
  • 1 brown onion, cut into thin wedges
  • 1 celery stalk, sliced diagonally 
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 carrots, thinly sliced into strips or use potato peeler
  • 100g snow peas, trimmed, thinly sliced lengthways, or green beans
  • 400g can baby corn, halved

To serve

  • red chilli, thinly sliced
  • spring onion, thinly sliced

Method

Cook the noodles following packet directions. Drain well. Set aside.

Combine cornflour, soy sauce, oyster sauce and beef stock in a small bowl. Mix well to combine.

Heat a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the oil, swirling to coat the pan. Add mince and stir fry for 3-5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a heatproof bowl.

Stir-fry bok-choy in wok for 3 minutes or until leaves are starting to wilt (add a splash of water if you find bok-choy is sticking or starting to burn). Transfer bok-choy to a bowl. Add the onion and celery to the wok and stir-fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until just starting to soften. Add garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Return the mince to the wok, add the sauce mixture and stir-fry for 1 minute or until the sauce comes to a gentle boil. Add the carrot, snow peas and corn. Stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes or until vegetables are just tender and the sauce has thickened. Add the noodles back to the pan, tossing well to combine. Serve the chow mein topped with the wilted bok choy, chilli and spring onion.
