I came up with this savoury mince and glass noodle recipe as i was going through my pantry and realised i had about 4 packets of vermicelli noodles (the glass looking noodles) just sitting there looking lonely.
I love a good noodle dish and this one was totally experimental, but oh my gosh! Delicious! I always have my recipe journal next to me in which i write down all my ingredients as i'm cooking and you should see this one, it covered in ingredients!
500g Beef Mince
1 Tablespoon Olive oil
1 Carrot, grated
2 Spring Onions, thinly sliced
1/2 Yellow Capsicum, Diced
1/2 teaspoon Paprika
1/2 teaspoon Ground Coriander
1/2 teaspoon Turmeric
1/2 teaspoon Ground Cumin
1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
1/4 Cup Fish Sauce
1/4 Cup Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tablespoon Sugar
2 Sheets Vermicelli Noodles
In a large bowl soak noodles in hot water for 5mins.
Add a tablespoon of olive oil to a wok and heat until hot, fry mince until cooked and slightly crispy. Add paprika, coriander, turmeric and cumin, Mix well.
Add carrot, spring onion and capsicum to the mince and stir fry for 5mins. Combine all the sauces and sugar together in a bowl. Add sauces to mince mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes, add noodles and stir until well combined. Serve
Tip: You can add any stir fry veggies to your mince, just make sure they are diced finely enough to cook through in the short time in the wok.
Tip: The savoury mince mixture itself can be used for numerous things like shepherd's pie or as a filling in jacket spuds. Be creative.
