Boil a full kettle of water. Peel and crush the garlic. Finely slice the spring onion and brown onion. Finely shop the coriander leaves and stalks (keep leaves and stalks separate). Peel and slice the carrot into half moons. Wash and roughly chop the Asian greens.


Place the Hokkien noodles in a large bowl and pour over the boiling water. Separate using a fork or tongs and leave to soak for 10 minutes. Drain and return the Hokkien noodles to the bowl.


Meanwhile, place the beef mince in a medium bowl and add the plain flour, garlic and spring onion. Break the beef mince up with a wooden spoon and stir to coat it in the plain flour. This technique of coating your meat in flour prior to cooking is called ‘velveting'. It maintains the moisture of the mince while cooking and provides a so or ‘velvety’ texture.


Heat the olive oil in a large wok or frying pan over a high heat. Add the brown onion and coriander stalks and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until softened. Add the beef mince mixture and mild curry powder and cook for 7-8 minutes, breaking the mince up with a wooden spoon until browned and cooked through. Add the carrot and Asian greens and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the carrot has softened.


Add the Hokkien noodles, oyster sauce and salt-reduced soy sauce to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes to heat through.


Divide the beef Chow Mein between bowls and top with the coriander leaves.
