Curried Beef Noodles

Curried Beef Noodles

A super-quick family meal with a spicy kick! You will need:

  • An oven with a hob
  • A microwave
  • A large, deep frying pan or wok
  • A wooden or silicone spoon

  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 25 minutes

Serves: 1

Category: Beef


  • Olive oil (as required)
  • Curry-flavoured instant noodles (1 pack per person)
  • Ground beef (250g per person)
  • Beef-flavoured gravy granules (½ teaspoon per person)
  • Chopped french green beans (40g per person)
  • Steamed veg - carrots, broccoli, cauliflower (1 bag per person)


  1. Add a generous splash of oil to your frying pan and turn it up to a medium heat.
  2. After about a minute, add your ground beef - thoroughly breaking it up with your spoon.
  3. Simmer the beef for around 7 minutes, adding the chopped green beans halfway through.
  4. While the beef is cooking, pop the bags of steam veg into the microwave. One bag should be ready in 4 minutes, but you should add around 50% to the cooking time for each additional bag you put in.
  5. Add the instant noodles to the beef and sprinkle in the curry seasoning from the small packs inside.
  6. Pour in a little boiling water and sprinkle in the gravy granules to thicken.
  7. Bring the mix to the boil, adding water until the sauce is as thick or runny as you like it and the noodles are soft.
  8. When you’re happy, stir in the steamed veg and heat the dish through.
  9. Spoon the noodles into bowls and serve!

B&M Top Tip: You can make the beef extra rich and tender if you prepare it in a slow cooker.
