Ok..I have to admit that I made some minor alterations...but isn't that the beauty of recipes like this..such versatility!
Anyway...I used fresh hokkien noodles as they were sat in my fridge begging to be used, and I subbed snow peas for green beans,and finely chopped chillies for the sambal.
I also added about 1/4 cup water to the veggies as they were stir frying to create some steam-I find that it helps them to cook.
This whole dish came together beautifully-it looked wonderful and tasted fantastic. The family virtually inhaled this as it tasted so good.
DH took the leftovers to work for lunch and raved about them again!
Great recipe Pat-thanks for posting!

Haven't made this yet but was looking for a comparable recipe to one i saw in a Weight Watchers Magazine. Essentially the same ingredients but they marinated the beef in 2 cloves crushed garlic,2 tsp fresh minced ginger,1 Tbsp soy sauce, and 1 tsp sesame oil for 20 mins before cooking. I think this sounds like a fine idea as I hate tough meat in a stirfry!! Will review again when I have made it!!

I didn't have green beans but made as written otherwise. Perfect spiciness for us and only had a little bit leftover. Did serve with noodles but could also use rice.
