  Serves 2
  At the ready
a kettle of boiling water
a wok or large non-stick frying pan
a colander
250 g (9 oz) lean rump steak
2 tablespoons teriyaki marinade
2 x 50 g nests of dried fine egg noodles
a bunch of spring onions
2 celery sticks
200 g (7 oz) sugar snap peas or mangetout
calorie controlled cooking spray
freshly ground black pepper


  1. Slice the steak thinly across the grain. Put the strips in a bowl (don’t use  a metal one) and add the teriyaki marinade, tossing the meat to coat it. Leave to marinate for 10 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, put the nests of noodles into a heatproof bowl and cover with boiling water from the kettle. Set aside for 5 minutes.
  3. While the noodles are soaking, thinly slice the spring onions and celery. Halve the sugar snap peas or mangetout.
  4. Heat the wok or large non-stick frying pan and spray with the cooking spray. Add the sliced vegetables and stir-fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the drained steak (reserving the marinade) and stir-fry for 2 minutes.
  5. Drain the noodles and add to the wok and stir-fry for a few moments to heat through. Add the reserved marinade and season with black pepper.

Serve immediately.
