This beef and glass noodle stir fry recipe is my family's absolute favorite.

I usually sneak in quite a lot of veggies such as peppers, leaks and spinach.

In today's beef and glass noodle stir fry recipe, I only used standard ingredients, so feel free to be creative with what you add!

This noodle recipe is actually inspired by Korean cuisine. You can whip it up in under 15 minutes!! It's no wonder why I have been repeating this stir fry recipe again and again! haha. Kids will love it and it's easy to make it, who can resist trying it?!

If you are vegetarian then the beef can be switched out for tofu.




<Yield> 3 servings

<Prep time> 5 minutes

<cook time> 8 minutes


2 onions (500g)

3.5oz (100g) beef mince/ground beef

1 cup (30g) dried glass noodles

1 cup Chinese chives, chopped

1 tablespoon Toasted sesame oil

½ tablespoon vegetable oil

½ carrot


4 ½ tablespoons Soy sauce

1½ tablespoons Mirin

1 tablespoon sugar

2 teaspoons garlic, grated

<Optional toppings>

crushed nuts

any fresh herb


1. Chop the onion into wedges. Cut the carrot into approximately 1 cm/ ½ inch thick matchsticks. Chop the Chinese chives into approximately 4cm/ 2 inches in length. Boil the glass noodles according to their package instruction. Drain the water from the noodles then cut into bite sized pieces. Mix the seasonings as listed above.

2. Heat the vegetable oil over high heat and then add in the carrots, onions and minced beef/ground beef. Cook them for approximately 6 minutes or until the vegetables are 80% cooked. Add in the Chinese chives and cooked glass noodles, then stir fry for 1 minute. Add in the mixed seasonings and continue to cook until most of the liquid has evaporated.

3. Drizzle on some toasted sesame oil as a finishing touch. Transfer to a serving plate and garnish with some crushed nuts or fresh herbs if you want to. Now it's ready to be enjoyed!

<Miwa's tips> 

・Make sure to stir periodically to prevent burning.

・The vegetables used in this recipe is very versatile. Mushrooms, peppers, and spinach are also great options.

・Chinese chives and glass noodles are cooked in only one minute. When I cooked my glass noodles, I only had to boil them for one minute. Please do not overcook them otherwise there will be no texture. Follow the package instructions!
