Wok vegetables with beef fillet
The preparation

Portion the meat into small pieces with your WÜSTHOF knife, turn onions and garlic into fine cubes and cut carrots, snow peas and mushrooms. The pasta is cooking at the same time. Let the onions and garlic sweat in the pan and add the vegetables. After about 1 minute, push them to the edge and fry the fillet in the middle. Add Sambal Olek and soy sauce and season to taste. Then add noodles and bean sprouts to the pan, sprinkle with herbs and enjoy.
