Bring a medium saucepan of water to the boil. Slice the carrot (unpeeled) into matchsticks. Roughly chop the Asian greens. Finely slice the spring onion. Deseed and finely slice the long red chilli (if using). TIP: Make sure you remove the seeds and white pith when deseeding the chilli. The pith is actually the hottest part! If you like heat, leave it in for an extra kick. Pick the coriander leaves


Add the soba noodles to the saucepan of boiling water and cook for 8 minutes, or until tender. Note: Be sure to add the correct amount of noodles in order for your dish to be perfectly balanced, just the way we planned it! Drain and refresh with cold water. Return the noodles to the saucepan.


While the noodles are cooking, combine the kecap manis, the soy sauce and the white wine vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.


Heat a large frying pan or wok over a medium-high heat. Add the sesame seeds and toast, stirring, for 2-3 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the pan and set aside. Return the pan to a high heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Add the beef strips in two batches and stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until browned. TIP: Frying the beef in batches stops the meat from stewing. Set aside on a plate.


Heat another drizzle of olive oil in the same pan and add the spring onion, the carrot and the Asian greens. Stir-fry the vegetables for 1 minute, or until vibrant in colour and just cooked. Return the beef strips to the pan and add the kecap manis-soy mixture and the soba noodles. Stir-fry for a further 2 minutes, or until heated through.


Divide the Asian beef and soba noodles between bowls. Top with the toasted sesame seeds, the coriander leaves and the long red chilli (if using).
