Garlic Steak Noodles

Garlic Steak Noodles

This is a wonderfully simple recipe, great for a family meal in the middle of the week. I am vegetarian so while I serve my family this recipe, make myself a simple veggie option by eliminating the steak and adding some fresh tomato instead.


1 Tbs Olive Oil
1 tsp Butter
250g Minute Steak
1 Tbs Crushed Garlic
300g Fresh Organic Baby Spinach Leaves
150ml Organic cream (Creme Fraîche also works well)
1 pack of fresh Tagliatelle, Fettuccine  or Spaghetti
Ground Black Pepper and Salt to season

For Dressing on Top:
3 Tbs fresh crushed garlic
2 Tbs Chopped Parsley
2 Tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Use a good quality oil)
2 Tbs Finely Grated Parmesan Cheese (again a good quality one goes a long way)


  1. Heat a large pot of water on the stove, with a splash of olive oil and a dash of salt in it. Allow to boil.
  2. Using a meat tenderising mallet, bash the steak a few times, to ensure it is nice and thin and tender. Then cut it into thin strips.
  3. Once the water is boiling, throw in your pasta.
  4. Place the butter and oil in a pan and heat. Then add the steak and garlic and stir fry for a few minutes, taking care not to overcook the steak.
  5. Place the cooked steak in a large bowl, along with the baby spinach and cream.
  6. Drain the pasta once it is done and add it to the bowl. Mix through thoroughly and add the seasoning.
  7. Dish into individual pasta bowls and drizzle the dressing over each bowl. Then serve.
