Chilli Sesame Beef

Tasty oriental dish, best done with fresh rice noodles if you can find them. Adding a little "sambal oelek" to the sweet mild chilli sauce adds a nice kick.

Although I'm not usually a fan of brocolli in stir fry, this was good. It retained its crunch and didn't go all mushy. We could only get dried rice noodles, but they worked ok. Next time though we need to pour off the boiling water sooner as they broke up a little. I love saucy things, so I will double the sauce ingredients next time. Flavours were excellent though for such a simple recipe.
