Apricot Beef With Sesame Noodles

Total Time

This dish has a great combination of flavors, I have made this many times, it's a family favorite, prep time does not include boiling the noodles, plan ahead the meat needs to marinate for about 4 hours

  1. Combine the sliced beef with dried chili flakes, mustard, soy sauce and garlic (if using) refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

Delicious! I cut back on the apricot as well although it was more for my not wanting to use all of my beloved home-made jam on dinner instead of on my toast lol!! It was a really tasty alternative to our usual sesame beef stir-fry. I was a bit short on time so just increased the marinade quantity & had it sit while I prepared veges etc. Was still pretty tops, thanks Kittencal, another wonderful recipe to add to my cookbook!!

Kittencal, we loved this dish. Had it for dinner tonight! The only thing I changed is to cut back on the preserves to 1/2 c. and my hubby said it was a good call for him because he doesn't like things too sweet. This recipe was perfect the way it was. Oops, I forgot, I added beans sprouts because we had them...yum. We also thought for a future taste treat we might add some crushed red pepper to the recipe for a hot and sweet taste. We will definitely make this again and hubby's having it for lunch tomorrow. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I'm glad I was the first one to rate it!
