Spicy lamb stir fry

My last blog post was the delicious chicken chow mein and I'm on a real here as this recipe is yet another Chinese inspired dish, spicy lamb stir fry. I've never tasted a lamb stir fry and have not come across it in my local all you can eat Chinese restaurants. I was intrigued to find out how strips of lamb would taste in a stir fry, with stir fry veg, noodles and hoi sin sauce. I am all for discovering low calorie or low fat dishes and the recipe for this meal comes from my first Weight Watchers purchase. I marinaded the lamb in Chines 5 spice seasoning, ginger, soy sauce and chili and left overnight. The taste of the lamb was a nice change from my usual chicken chow mein, although I'll probably stick to chicken as I can not separate having lamb from a lamb dinner. It just did not seem right to have lamb in a stir fry!
Here is how my lamb stir fry turned out:
