Chop suey with corned beef is a family favourite in Tonga. The corned beef breaks up and may look a bit messy but it has a delicious taste. You can replace the corned beef with strips of steak if you like – just cook the beef with garlic and ginger before adding the vegetables.

  1. Heat the oil in a wok and cook the garlic and ginger over a medium heat for a minute.
  2. Add the carrots and peppers and cook for another 5 minutes, over a low heat, stirring often.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the noodles as instructed on the pack. Drain.
  4. Add the corned beef to the vegetables and cook for another 2 minutes, stirring gently.
  5. Add the noodles, soy sauce and sugar and stir to mix. Heat until simmering and serve immediately.
