Vegetarian Chinese-style Spicy Beef and Peppers made with Quorn

Although we're not vegetarians it is sometimes good to have a meat free dinner.  In any case Quorn is super quick to cook.

Chinese Beef Quorn

I must say the Quorn beef strips (sold frozen) are as I say, easy to cook but in my opinion actually taste more like tofu rather than beef; that said personally I much prefer the Quorn beef than the chicken, I find the chicken a bit dry.  This dish can be on the table in a matter of minutes and since you cook the beef strips from frozen my recipe really is a doddle to make and is really tasty.

How to do it:

Stir-fry for another couple of minutes until the sauce has thicken slightly and coats the Quorn strips and vegetables.   Serve straight away with rice or noodles.

  1. Such a vibrant coloured meal, and the Quorn really does look like meat! I haven't had Quorn in years - I must try it again.
