  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • thumb-sized piece ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 100ml oyster sauce

  • 300g pack cooked rice noodles
  • 2 limes, 1 cut into wedges
  • 2 butter lettuces, or 1 iceberg


  1. Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan. Add the beef and fry until browned all over and starting to crisp. Add the spring onions, pepper, ginger, oyster sauce and beans. Stir-fry for another 5 mins until the veg has softened, then add the noodles and juice of 1 lime. Season well and toss everything together until well combined and heated through.
