How to make beef and noodles

  1. Marinate the beef: Slice the steak into thin strips then place in a bowl. Add two tablespoons of soy sauce and an egg. Mix together well then set aside.
  2. Make the sauce: Fry onion and garlic in a large pan until fragrant. Add the soy sauce, honey, Hoisin/Oyster sauce, vinegar and water. Bring to a simmer and allow to reduce by half. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Fry the beef: Heat enough oil to deep fry the beef in a pot set over high heat. Season flour with a teaspoon of salt. Dip the steak strips into the flour mixture, making sure each strip is well-coated. Shake off the excess then add to the hot oil, frying the beef in batches until golden brown and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon and allow to drain on kitchen towel.
  4. Combine with the sauce: Place the sauce back on the heat then add the beef and toss well to coat the meat in the sauce. Add cooked noodles and season with more soy sauce, honey or vinegar if needed. Serve sprinkled with thinly sliced spring onions.

How to thicken beef and noodles

  1. Delicious recipe, really enjoyed it!

    Just as a heads up to people, the calorie count listed on this recipe is much lower than the count I got with weighed ingredients on cronometer. Part of that is I took the 500g of noodles to mean 500g dry/uncooked noodles, but the calorie count is much closer if you assume the author meant 500g cooked noodles.

  2. This is really good. I added sliced water chestnuts, snap peas, broccoli slaw and doubled the sauce.

  3. Just made this for dinner and it was delicious! Think this might become a favourite for when we feel like a takeaway style meal at home.
