Set the table first, because this sticky ginger beef is done in a flash! You'll coat beef mince and crisp mangetout with a moreish chilli jam sauce, then scatter over sliced spring onion and red chilli.

Before you begin...
Get all your ingredients and equipment ready
Skim through these steps
Wash your fruit and veg
Note: Equipment and pan sizes vary. Make sure you cook food thoroughly (even if it takes you a little longer than 10 mins)
Now, let's get started!
Boil a kettle
Heat a large, wide-based pan (preferably non-stick) with a drizzle of vegetable oil over a high heat
Once hot, add the beef mince and cook for 2-3 min, breaking it up with a wooden spoon as you go
Meanwhile, add the fine egg noodles to a large bowl, cover them with boiled water until fully submerged and stir for 10 secs until the noodles separate
Set aside to soak for 4 min, or until softened
While the noodles are soaking, chop the red chilli[es] finely
Tip: Remove the seeds if you don't like it spicy!
Bunch the spring onions together, trim, then slice roughly
Add half the sliced spring onion to the pan with the mangetout and ginger paste and cook for 1-2 min further or until the beef has started to brown
Add the soy sauce, chilli jam and rice vinegar to the pan and cook for 1-2 min further or until sticky – this is your sticky ginger beef
Drain the fine egg noodles and return them to the bowl
Season with a pinch of salt and stir through the toasted sesame oil – these are your sesame noodles
Serve the sticky ginger beef over the sesame noodles
Garnish with the sliced chilli (can't handle the heat? Go easy!) and remaining spring onion
