Mala Beef Noodles Soup

Steaming hot and spicy, the Mala Beef Noodle Soup is the ultimate warming dish for a cold winter’s night. It is incredibly aromatic, thanks to the liberal use of garlic, ginger and Asiatic herbs such as star anise, cloves and, of course, the Chinese peppercorn. Fair warning though, you might end up perspiring so make sure you have more than a couple of napkins at hand!
