1 Place the noodles in a bowl and pour over boiling water. Leave to stand for 4 minutes. Heat a pan until hot. Add steak and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or to your liking. Set to one side. Drain noodles.
2 Heat a non-stick pan with oil and cook shallot for a few minutes until softened. Add paste and cook for a few minutes more. Add veges, mushrooms and stock. Heat through.
3 Slice beef thinly and add to soup with noodles. Heat through before serving.
A vegetable or julienne peeler is quick, easy to use and makes veges look very tempting.
