  1. Heat 1tbsp oil in a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add the beef mince and stir-fry for 6-8 mins, stirring constantly to break up the mince, until dark brown and crisp. Meanwhile, put the noodles in a heatproof bowl and pour boiling water over to cover. Leave to soak for 6-7 mins, then drain, reserving 5 tbsp of the water.
  2. Transfer the crispy beef to a bowl. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in the wok, add the broccoli and onion and fry for 5-6 mins until the broccoli is bright green and starting to turn tender. Mix the soy, vinegar, miso and reserved noodle water in a small bowl.
  3. Add the garlic, ginger and most of the chilli to the wok and fry for 1 min until fragrant. Tip the noodles into the wok along with the sauce and crispy beef. Toss well to coat the noodles and broccoli in the sauce; cook for 30 secs more until sauce is bubbling and thickened. Divide between 4 bowls and scatter with the remaining chilli to serve.
