A Taste Of…. China

I love to cook chinese food mainly because it is quick and easy. This is a simple beef chow mein recipe.

You will need:

  • 225g/8oz egg noodles
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2½ tbsp finely chopped garlic
  • beef frying steak
  • 1 onion sliced
  • handful of mushrooms slices
  • 2 tsp light soy sauce
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp  dry sherry
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp freshly ground white pepper
  • ½ tsp sugar

Preparation Method:

  1. Cook the noodles by boiling them for 3-5 minutes in a pan of boiling water. Drain and plunge into cold water, drain again then toss with a little sesame oil.
  2. Cut your steak into shreads
  3. To marinade your steak, combine with the light soy sauce, dry sherry, sesame oil, salt and pepper in a small bowl
  4. Mix well and leave to marinate for 20 minutes.
  5. Heat a wok until it is very hot. Add one tablespoon of oil and, when it is very
    hot and slightly smoking,  add steak shreds.
  6. Stir-fry the mixture for about two minutes, then transfer to a plate
  7. Reheat the wok, and add remaining oil. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the onion and mushrooms fry for a few minutes
  8. Add noodles, light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, rice wine, salt and pepper, the sugar and continue to stir-fry for two minutes.
  9. Return your steak to the mixture
  10. Continue to cook until your steak is cooked to taste
