Quick and easy, cashew satay sauce from gourmet chef mixed with lime and coconut is the base for our satay noodles. Served with thinly sliced garlic steaks and scattered with cashew nuts, this is a mid-week winner!
1. Bring a saucepan of water to the boil. Add noodles and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until cooked al dente. Drain and rinse in cold water.

2. Combine 150ml satay sauce with coconut milk, 1 tbsp oil (see notes), grated lime zest and juice from 1/2 lime. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

3. Halve cucumber lengthways then slice on a diagonal. Julienne carrots.

4. Rub beef steaks with 1/2 tbsp oil and crushed garlic clove. Cook in a heated pan or barbecue for 3-4 minutes on each side, or to your liking. Set aside on a chopping board and thinly slice when cool enough to handle.

5. Toss cooked noodles with half of the sauce, then arrange on a serving platter. Top with prepared fresh vegetables, bean shoots and sliced steaks.

6. Scatter over cashews then serve at the table with remaining lime cut into wedges and extra sauce.

Make sure to rinse noodles thoroughly in cold water once drained to stop the cooking process and to prevent them from sticking together. 
Use an oil like peanut, grape seed, coconut oil instead of olive oil for the sauce if you have some. 

Boil or fry any remaining eggs and serve with the noodles.

Drizzle with soy sauce if you desire.
