Serves: 4
Time: 20 minutes cooking
Good for: Protein, iron, Vitamins B, C and D, antioxidants, blood circulation 

Ingredients

2 tbsp miso paste
1in piece fresh ginger, finely sliced into matchsticks
1 star anise
150g udon noodles
2 sirloin steaks
2 tbsp olive oil
100g shitake mushrooms, halved, if large
100g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
200g pack baby leaf greens, finely shredded
1 red chilli, finely sliced
6 spring onions, finely sliced
Small bunch coriander, stalks chopped 

Method

• Fill a large pan with 1 litre freshly boiled water and stir in the miso. Add the ginger and star anise, then leave to simmer over a low heat. Meanwhile, cook the noodles following the packet instructions and drain.
• Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a high heat until smoking. Lightly oil the steaks with a little of the olive oil and season well. Cook for at least 3 minutes on each side, until fully cooked. Remove and set aside to rest.
• Add the mushrooms and greens to the miso broth and continue simmering for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in a separate pan and fry the chilli, spring onions and coriander stalks until just softened.
• Slice the steaks thinly. Divide the noodles between 4 bowls and ladle over the broth. Top each with the steak strips, chilli mixture and remaining coriander. Serve immediately. 

And that’s that! Bon apetite!
