1Make Pickles

Combine the cucumber & pickle brine in a medium bowl. Set aside to pickle, tossing occasionally, until needed.

2Marinate Beef

Combine beef, hoisin sauce & a small drizzle of olive oil in a medium bowl. Seas with a pinch of salt & pepper. Toss together well. 

3Cook Noodles

Cook noodles in the saucepan of boiling water for 7 mins or until tender. Drain, then rinse under hot water to prevent the noodles from sticking. Add drained noodles to a large bowl. 

4Stirfry Beef

Heat a large skillet over high heat until very hot – you can test this by dropping a very small splash of water in the skillet; it should sizzle & smoke immediately. Add beef & stir-fry the beef for 1-2 mins until browned. Remove from the pan, wipe plan clean. 

5Stirfry Veggies

Add a drizzle of olive oil to the same pan you cooked beef. Add a drizzle of olive oil, snow peas & cabbage. Cook for 2-3 minutes until just crisp-tender. Turn off heat. 

6Finish Noodles & Serve

Add sesame honey dressing, carrot, snow peas, cabbage, mint, ½ green onion to bowl with noodles. Toss well. Add beef & any resting juices & half the peanuts & toss to combine. Divide noodle mixture among bowls & scatter with remaining peanuts and onions. Serve with drained pickled cucumber.
