Twenty sixteen has been a Big Year, and we’ve both had some pretty incredible, hectic and amazing life changes take place.

We were inspired to create something simple, easy on the belly and super fresh. With some of us back at work after a busy holiday break, this is an uplifting lunch or dinner meal that takes around 15 minutes to prepare. Brilliant.


  • 500g rump steak
  • 200g dried noodles (ramen, vermicelli or your choice)

  • 1 Lebanese cucumber
  • 1 capsicum
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes
  • handful each of basil, coriander and mint leaves (any fresh herbs you have)
  • 1/2 cup bean shoots
  • 1/3 cup roasted peanuts
