Vietnamese Noodles with Steak and Shrimp

Author: Canadian Living

Look for rice noodles in the pasta or multicultural aisles of your grocery store and keep them on hand for when you're craving something a little exotic. They cook in even less time than wheat pasta. Any width of noodle will do.

  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 oz rice noodles
  • 1/2 cucumber halved lengthwise and sliced
  • 1 carrots grated
  • 1/2 sweet red pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 4 teaspoons lime juice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 4 oz sirloin steaks
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 8 oz large cooked shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh mint (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander (optional)

Method

In large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles for 4 to 6 minutes or until tender but firm. Drain and rinse under cold running water. Drain again and transfer to serving bowl. Top with cucumber, carrot and red pepper.

Meanwhile, in small bowl, whisk together sugar, water, fish sauce, lime juice and garlic; set aside.

Cut beef into thin strips. In skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry beef for about 2 minutes or until browned. Add to pasta mixture.

Add fish sauce mixture to skillet; bring to boil. Add shrimp; reduce heat and simmer for 1 minute or until heated through. Pour over noodles. Sprinkle with mint (if using).
