Recipe for family meals :

Chill Out Chow Mein

Working at the BBC Good Food Show last November gave me very little opportunity to actually see much of the show. However, one interesting item I did get given was a CD-Rom of recipes, promoting New Zealand Lamb. There are some first class recipes - hopefully they will not mind me publishing a few!

How to introduce New Zealand Lamb? That is probably best left to the New Zealanders themselves:

4 New Zealand Lamb neck fillets, thawed if frozen
1 tbsp oil
450g pack vegetables for stir-frying
180g jar ready-made black bean or hot and spicy Cantonese style sauce
250g ready-cooked egg noodles
Soy sauce (optional)

  • Cut the neck fillets into strips.
  • Heat the oil in a wok or large frying pan and stir in the lamb. Cook over a high heat for 5 minutes until the lamb is almost cooked through.
  • Stir in the vegetables and heat through for 2 minutes.
  • Tip in the jar of sauce and stir well until everything is hot and completely coated with the sauce.
  • Add the noodles, separating them with your fingers as you put them in the pan. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes, mixing them through with the meat, sauce and vegetables.
  • Serve straight away drizzled with a little extra soy sauce.

Hints and Tips:

  • Neck fillets are great for this recipe because they contain a lot of flavour.
  • There are many different flavoured sauces for stir frying available in the supermarket which are great for making stir fried noodle dishes. If they seem a little thick, just add a splash of water.
  • You could also try this recipe with riceinstead of noodles, as an alternative.

Serves 4
