I, like quite a few of you out there am a fan of a bit of meaty goodness every now and then but for the most part I'd go fish and seafood first. That is until the weather starts to cool down or we get a strange cold spell in the middle of July. This is England after all. At these times... all I want is meat. The thicker the cut the better!

I suppose I associate meat with good homely, comforting stodge like pies and stews with lashings of mash (and gravy obviously, I AM a northern girl after all), hence my seasonal feeding habits. To try and combat this wintery bout of carnivorous tendencies I've been trying to think of some lighter meaty alternatives that would go down a treat in summer. This means I get to wrap my mouth around some tasty meat all year round!

So, after a few trials and epic fails I came up with this immense Asian inspired steak dish. It can be eaten hot or cold and is light enough that you don't need a nap after. Win win situation right?
INGREDIENTS - serves 2
250g sirloin cut into strips
100g fresh egg noodles
1 carrot 
2 spring onions
2 tbsp soy sauce
1/2 red chilli

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp agave nectar or honey
1 tbsp chilli powder
1 tbsp paprika
Juice and zest of 1 lemon
Ground black pepper

1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade together and add the steak. Leave for at least 20 minutes to absorb all the flavour
2. Slice the spring onion, chilli and grate the carrot
3. Heat an empty pay on a high heat then add the steak, searing until it gets a good colour
4. Add the noodles, carrot, chilli and spring onion and stir through before adding the soy sauce
5. Taste and season with salt if necessary

Enjoy : ) x
