Prep: 10 mins | Cook: 15 mins
1. Put a large pan of salted water on to boil. Pour the tamari and 1 tbsp balsamic into a small bowl. Add 1 tbsp sugar and 1 tsp China 5 spice. Pour in 100ml boiling water and stir everything together to dissolve the sugar.
2. Peel and finely slice the red onion. Halve the pepper. Scoop out the seeds and white pith and finely slice the pepper. Slice the leaves off the kale stalks. Finely slice the leaves.
3. Put a wok or deep frying pan over a high heat for 2 mins. Add ½ tbsp oil and the beef strips. Stir fry for 3-5 mins till the beef is browned all over. Lift the beef out and place on a plate.
4. The water should be boiling by now, so add the spaghetti. Simmer for 8-10 mins till the spaghetti is tender but not too soft.
5. While the spaghetti simmers, add another ½ tbsp oil to the wok. Add the onion and pepper. Stir fry for 3 mins till they start to soften.
6. Add the beef and kale to the wok. Pour in the tamari mix. Simmer for 5 mins till the kale wilts and the beef is cooked through.
7. Drain the spaghetti. Toss the spaghetti with the beef, vegetables and sauce. Serve straight away.
