Filipino Beef Noodles recipe

A tasty, zingy dish that's full of flavour, and pretty good for you, too. Try shredded chicken in place of the beef if you don’t like red meat.


  • 110g rice noodles
  • 170g sirloin steak
  • 170g cabbage
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 spring onions
  • 1 hard-boiled egg
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Juice of one lime
  • 3 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. fish sauce
  • 1 tsp. chilli sauce
  • 1 handful coriander
  • Olive oil
  • Pinch of black pepper


  1. Soak the noodles in a bowl of warm water for five minutes to rehydrate, then drain and set to one side.

  2. Prepare the food. Finely chop the onion into slices. Finely chop the spring onions. Chop the steak into 1cm thick pieces. Finely slice the cabbage. Slice the egg. Mince the garlic clove.

  3. Heat the oil in a wok.

  4. Add the garlic, large white onion and steak to the wok and stir fry for a couple of minutes until the meat is browned.

  5. Add the noodles and cook for 2 minutes, then add the cabbage and stir together.

  6. Add the black pepper, soy sauce, fish sauce and chilli sauce to the work and stir well. Cook out for a few minutes then add the lime juice.

  7. Serve on a large plate with the spring onions, egg and coriander sprinkled over the top.
