Chinese Pepper Steak with Wholewheat Noodles


This is beautifully quick & easy to throw together, it literally takes minutes making it a great contender for a mid week dinner.

I always cut my meat against the grain before cooking it and it makes for a much more tender softer piece of meat, trust me it makes all the difference. To cut against the grain simply look for the grain (natural lines across your steak) and cut it in strips going in the opposite direction. Macros 589Cal P43 C66 F17 Smartpoints 13. Continue reading
