Instead of deep-fried beef strips, we use lean mince in our crispy chilli beef, making this delicious dish low in saturated fat.

  1. Lightly toast the peanuts in a dry frying pan, crush in a pestle and mortar and put aside.
  2. Put the sesame oil and the Chinese five spice into a wok, set over a medium-to-high heat and add the mince, breaking it apart with a wooden spoon. Cook for 3 minutes.
  3. Add half the garlic and ginger and the honey and stir-fry for 5 minutes until meat starts to crisp up.
  4. Meanwhile, add the remaining garlic and ginger to a small bowl, followed by the fish sauce, soy sauce, lime juice and red chilli to make a dressing.
  5. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions. In a large bowl, add the spring onions, carrot, radishes and iceberg lettuce and toss to combine.
  6. To serve, place large spoonfuls of salad on the plates followed by the noodles. Spoon over the crispy beef, sprinkle with the peanuts and drizzle with the dressing. Garnish with fresh coriander.
