This quick beef stir-fry recipe is easy to make, absolutely delicious and healthy. Its high protein content makes it the perfect post-workout meal but you can enjoy it any time. The colourful vegetables pack in lots of antioxidants while the cashew nut butter adds a nutty flavour along with healthy fat.
Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon olive in a pan, add the beef and pan fry for 2-4 minutes each side (depending on the thickness of the cut and how rare you like your meat). Set aside to rest.
Add the second tablespoon olive oil to a hot pan or wok. Now toss in the red onion, pepper, corn and mangetout and cook for 3-5 minutes.
After the steak has rested for a couple of minutes slice it and add it to the pan.
In a small bowl, mix all the ingredients for the sauce and stir until it reaches a smooth consistency.
Pour the sauce into the pan & stir. Sprinkle the cashew nuts on top and serve.
If using noodles, prepare them accordingly to the instructions on the package. Most noodles only need to be submerged in boiling water for 2-3 minutes. Drain the noodles and add them to the mix. If you like a lot of sauce you might want to double the sauce recipe.
Alternatively, you can slice the steaks first and add them to the pan straight away. They will take 3-5 minutes to cook but they might be slightly drier than preparing it the other way.
