1. The basic beef

2. The spicy beef

For something with a little more kick, try this chilli beef stir-fry with baby corn and tender stem broccoli. Don’;t worry, it’s not that spicy — and you can adjust the amount of chilli flakes to suit your preference.


3. The classic Chinese chicken

We love the crunch that comes from water chestnuts and bamboo shoots. This easy dinner is another family favourite.
