Spicy Lamb and Noodle Salad
  • 1 tablespoon five-spice powder
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 lambs back straps about 250 g each
  • 500 g fresh Shanghai noodles
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 80 g snow pea sprouts
  • 1/2 red capsicum, thinly sliced
  • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped ginger
  • 1 tablespoon Chinese black vinegar
  • 1tablespoon Chinese rice wine
  • 2 tablespoons peanut oil


    1 Combine the five-spice powder, 2 tablespoons of the vegetable oil and garlic in a large non-metallic bowl. Add the lamb and turn to coat well. Cover and marinate for 30 minutes.

    2 Cook the noodles in a large saucepan of boiling water for 4-5 minutes, or until tender. Drain, rinse with cold water and drain again. Add the sesame oil and toss to combine thoroughly.

    3 Heat the remaining vegetable oil in a large frying pan. Cook the lamb over medium-high heat for 3 minutes each side for medium-rare, or until cooked to your liking. Rest for 5 minutes, and then thinly slice across the grain.

    4 To make the dressing, combine the ginger, Chinese black vinegar, rice wine, peanut oil and chilli mango cordial in a small bowl.

    5 Place the noodles, lamb strips, snow pea sprouts, capsicum, spring onion and the dressing in a large bowl and toss gently until well combined. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve
