Stir fried Beef with GF spaghetti

(This Stir fried Beef is served with spahetti rather than rice noodles as the kids prefer it!)

Provides 3 Adult portions – 1 portion split into 3 for the kiddies

I have started to use  Calorie Count to analyse the recipe and provide some figures to the food to help those on a calorie controlled intake – not an exact science but better than nothing… It does mean that I am being a bit more specific with weights and measurements – usually it is a glug of Olive Oil – now it is 20ml…

It also means that I will be updating the existing recipes on the site as and when I cook them again AND I might be quicker in getting some of the 100+ recipes still to go on the site as I will have already listed the ingredients to get the nutritional values…


20ml Olive Oil
150g Onion
22g spring onion (5 spring onions trimmed)
7g Ginger  (about the top part of thumb in size)
2 garlic cloves
100g Closed Cup Chestnut Mushrooms
300g Tomatoes
100g  Whole Green Beens
350g Beef
10g sesame seeds
10ml sesame oil
250g Gluten Free Spaghetti
10ml Mirin
10ml Rice wine vinegar
30ml soy sauce

10g of fresh coriander chopped


Put a pan of water onto boil for the Spaghetti ( dash of sunflower oil helps to stop the pasta sticking) .

Chop up the pepper, spring onions, mushrooms and put aside in a bowl.

Chop up the green beans and the tomato and put aside in a bowl.

Chop up the onion, finely dice the ginger and chuck in the wok with the olive oil.

When the water is boiling add the pasta to the pan – turn on the heat under the wok.

When the Onion is sizzling add the beef and fry for a few minutes until nearly cooked.

Add the soy sauce, Rice wine vinegar and the Mirin and a pinch of Chinese 5 spice and shake the pan up

Add the Garlic (ideally using a garlic press)

Add the green beans and the toms – cook for a couple of mins

Add the peppers, spring onions and mushrooms

Cook for a further 2 mins

The pasta should be cooked  now so drain and add that to the pan, along with the sesame seeds / sesame oil and the fresh coriander – stir it all up and serve – enjoy…

Note: – you could add a fresh chilli or two but the the kiddies are a tad little for that raw heat in a stir fry… (they are ok with it in a curry that is cooked over a longer period of time as that softens the heat… )

Nutritional Analysis

As stated above I’m Using Calorie Count to analyse the recipe – not an exact science but better than nothing… it’s really cool and worth using if you are interested in that sort of thing
