"From Coles supermarket's monthly magazine Oct.'16. Please note 20 minute marinating time is not included in times. Since making this we have made some minor changes to suit us and when I served it we had it with fried rice on the side. Also I could not get sugar snap peas so used snow peas and also added a 1/4 red capsicum cut into strips."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



I loved the meat mixture. The rice noodles really didn't absorb any sauce....just sort of slid right off of them. I'd rather use regular noodles, ramen, or rice next time. For the leftovers, I am going to serve over rice and see how that goes. Loved, loved the chile pepper!
