Sweet n Sour Beef with Noodles

Sweet n Sour Beef with Noodles - Quirky Cooking

Here’s one of our family favourites that I’ve been making for years, and just recently converted to the Thermomix.  If you’re not too much into ‘sweet’ and ‘beef’ together, don’t worry, it’s not too sweet – it’s very savoury, rich and flavoursome.  It takes a little longer to cook than most Thermomix meals, but you don’t have to watch it – you can go do something else while your dinner cooks itself! 

I serve this on wholemeal spelt spaghetti or fettucine – if you have the time to make your own noodles, it tastes even better! Or if you’re gluten free, you can serve it on gf spaghetti/fettucini. We also like it with raw vegetable ‘noodles’ made with a spiralizer.

Serves at least six.

Note: You can find Fine sea salt and Aussie Kibble Pepper for this recipe in my online store!

    Made this tonight for dinner but didn’t have any eggs so I couldn’t make my spelt pasta. Served it on TMX mashed potato/sweet potato and hubby scored it 8.5/10! It was a hit with the 3.5-yr-old too! 🙂

    Hi Jo

    This was a success tonight; thank you!!! (My husband is away for work at the moment so meal times can be a little tricky, depending on the moods of my 2 and 4 year olds). This was so easy to make, and both my boys loved it. With my 4 year old even making up a song about how yummy it was!

    Just a question; what vegetable/s do you use with this when making noodles with the spiraliser? I actually have one on the way from an online store and I would love to do this next time!

    Hubby said this was the best dish so far I’ve made since using my thermomix. Thanks Jo for creating a dish that has got the thumbs up in our household
