Pasta Contest

This really is so quick, easy and tasty. A great combination of peanut butter, chilli sauce and soy sauce mixed with stir fried noodles.  A few simple steps and you have a delicious dinner in 15 minutes (or less if not using meat)

A great dish for when you need dinner quickly  - I hope you enjoy! 

serves 3-4


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

Step 1:

  • mix all the sauce ingredients together and leave to one side while you prepare everything else

Step 2:

  • 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. 


Step 3:

  • 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

Step 4:

  • when the beef (etc....) is cooked add the stir fry veg mix and fry for a minute on a high heat.

Step 5:

  • 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

Step 6:

  • serve with optional toppings  - I used chopped mint, chilli flakes, sesame seeds and lime segments


Step 7:

  • enjoy your super quick and tasty noodles :)

I know its not pasta based, but that sauce is great with just steamed broccoli as a side dish. Yum

The more I look at this, the more I want it! I mean, peanut butter and pasta!?! It's so crazy it must be awesome :D

It is awesome! Even if I do say so myself ;)
Not weird at all - honest - think Thai inspired - like satay sauce. Let me know if you give it a go......:)

mmm that sounds great!
it might be even nicer with strips of meat, like chicken, instead of mince
(although that would eliminate the 15 minute part probably!)

Thanks - I will definitely try it with sliced chicken or beef soon - might take a bit longer with the chicken though but not much if its thin. The sauce is so good though its great with just the veg :)

yea i have often wanted to try chicken and noodles with a peanut sauce ^_^

Sounds fantastic! I love anything with peanut sauce. :D
