Rare Beef with Ginger and Mushroom Noodles

“A mushroomy Asian dish I give a whirl from Donna Hay. I think there is room for improvement on this one!”

Rare Beef with Ginger and Mushroom Noodles

My pictures aren’t as pretty as the ones in the latest Donna Hay magazine. Her beef looks rare – mine doens’t, but I had issues with it not cooking as much as I wanted to, and kinda cheated.

Hamsley didn’t really like it, I didn’t mind it; it’s like there was too much kecap manis, but there was a nice strong mushroomy-ness to it. I think it definietly needs to be served with chilli and coriander to break up the strongess of it.

If you make it, use less kecap manis and only add extra if you want more.

Rare Beef with Ginger and Mushroom Noodles

Donna Hay

  • 600g beef fillet
  • vegetable oil
  • 200g green tea soba noodles, cooked
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 3cm piece of ginger, sliced
  • 400g mixed Asian mushrooms (eg. enonki, shiitake)
  • 1/2 cup kecap manis
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • mint and coriander to serve
  1. Brush the 600g beef fillet with vegetable oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over high heat. Cook the beef for 3 minutes each side, remove from the pan and set aside.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pan over high heat. Add garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms and cook for 4-5 minutes or until golden.
  3. Add kecap manis and stock and the cooked soba noodles and toss to coat. 
  4. Slice the beef and serve with the noodles, coriander and mint leaves.
Serves 4.

    This looks really good Shellie! I don’t know what Donna’s looked like but yours looks delish! :)

    It’s a shame that it wasn’t a hit, though!

    That meat definitely looks rare to me! It also looks really good. I’ll try it with a big less of the kecap manis and let you know. :)

    Ooh that looks good!! If I hadn’t already used up my beef I would make this. I’ll do a meatless version then. πŸ˜€

    maybe you should use dark soy sauce instead of kecap manis?

    Looking at the seasonings it does look like it might be a bit too overpowering for the delicate soba. I do like the look of your beef, though, it looks pretty perfectly cooked.

    Meat looks like it’s cooked well. I think some herbs would break up the flavour too.

  7. Nic@diningwithastud - August 7, 2012 at 11:56 am

    I haven’t seen Donna’s but I def think you’re selling yourself short. It looks great :) I’d devour it!

    This recipe reminds me of Jobchae! I bet this is another good recipe, which I am so excited to prepare this in our table. Thanks for having it here.

  13. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella - August 7, 2012 at 10:35 pm

    It looks great but thanks for the adjustment tips Shellie! πŸ˜€

  14. Daisy@Nevertoosweet - August 7, 2012 at 11:02 pm

    i think it looks really pretty and would eat it any day for lunch or dinner :) Too bad Hamsley didnt like it, maybe it was the kecap manis fault?

  15. theragingcook - August 8, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Yum that looks succulently fantastic!!

  16. Amy @ Food Crush - August 8, 2012 at 11:41 pm

    Gorgeous pics, Shellie. I think Donna Hay would be proud.

  17. Sara (Belly Rumbles) - August 8, 2012 at 11:45 pm

    Looks extremely tasty. 1/2c of kecap manis does seem slightly more than I would be comfortable to use.

  18. msihua - August 9, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Your pictures look fab! I don’t know what you’re talking about.. it looks delicious!

  19. Libby - August 9, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Your pics look just as good as Donna Hay’s, Michele! I want to make this dish but yes, I’ll go easy on the kecap manis!

  20. Cara @ Gourmet Chick - August 9, 2012 at 9:55 pm

    I find it impossible to believe Donna’s could look any better – I want to eat this off the screen right now!

  21. Marta @ What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today? - August 10, 2012 at 3:35 am

    I think your pictures look amazing! And the meal itself as well.

  22. Vien - August 10, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Your food pictures are really really pretty! :) I can never fail to find inspiration here!

  23. Agnes - August 11, 2012 at 1:55 pm

    Half a cup is quite a lot of kecap manis! It still looks good though.

  24. Winston - August 11, 2012 at 6:25 pm

    Ahhh…. I can’t stand it when recipes can be so deceiving with the amount of ingredients like soy sauce or fish sauce they use. Definitely never seen anyone use half a cup of kecap manis. This still looks perfect to me so thanks for sharing it! YUMMEHHH

  25. Gourmet Getaways - August 12, 2012 at 7:54 am

    I love your image, and it looks so delicious!! I havent seen the Donna Hay pic. I am really pleased that you have given us some hints on how to improve the dish, I would hate to have been disappointed as it looks so good :0

  26. msihua - August 12, 2012 at 2:56 pm

    Nice plates :) Love the shots Maz. You’re getting more and more awesome!

  27. Jenny @ Ichigo Shortcake - August 15, 2012 at 2:10 am

    RARE BEEF! My favourite thing in the world. It looks quite rare, what are you talking about Michele? That plate looks very familiar. πŸ˜›
