Hey guys, how about this easy and fantastic recipe to start your week on 100!!!
If you love Chinese food, you’ll love this.
All you need is a WOK or a good non-stick sufuria (cooking pot) a whole bunch of veggies, the usual instant noodles, some good beef and you’re good to go!
Also I got my wok pan at Nakumatt Westgate, at the cookware section on the ground floor (just incase anyone was wondering) and can you imagine it was only 1700 bob! #Forthewin
- 600 grams beef strips (Fillet)
- 4 packs instant noodles
- 1 pack of chopped Stir-fry veggies
- 1 large red pepper
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 red/white onion
- Olive/vegetable oil
- Soy sauce
- Oyster sauce
- Black pepper
- Start by boiling water and preparing the noodles. Remember that since the noodles are instant, they will only need a few minutes (less than five) Remove from heat, drain the hot water and run cold water through them on a colander. This helps in preventing them from sticking together. Set aside.
- Chop onion, garlic and ginger and heat oil on your wok/sufuria.
- Add the onion, and half the garlic and half the ginger to cook and set the rest aside for later.
- Before the onion and garlic begins to brown, add the beef strips and leave to cook while stirring for the next 7-10 minutes.
- Follow by washing and adding the pack of stir-fry veggies. Also wash and chop the red pepper into large julienne strips and mix them with everything.
- Next add the seasoning which is a hint of black pepper, salt, a dash of soy sauce and oyster sauce. Be careful not to add too much soy sauce since it is very salty by itself.
- Keep stirring all throughout. It helps to have a wok/non stick pan since nothing sticks at the bottom, also since this is a recipe that doesn't have much of a sauce.
- When the veggies are cooked but still slightly crunchy and the meat has cooked, add the ginger and garlic that you had set aside. Adding it towards the end gives it an extra bang of flavor.
- Lastly add in the cooked noodles, and mix well.
- Leave to stir-fry for 2 minutes and then remove from heat.
- Garnish with sesame seeds which are very inexpensive. I got a whole pack for just 260 bob in the supermarket.
- Also buying the stir-fry pack of veggies saves you time and you can find them at any Nakumatt supermarket at around 80 bob. They come with different veggies each time. Sometimes they come with broccoli, corn, spring onions, other times they come with purple cabbage, carrots and peppers. Whatever the pack combo, it will work well.
- Ask your butcher to give you the most tender part of the cow. That way you don't have to boil the meat first.
