Beef Chow Mein and Vietnamese Spring Rolls
This is from an asian themed dinner party with some of my former floormates from first year university. This is honestly one of the easiest and tastiest dishes you can make (I’m referring to the Chow Mein)
- Beef (I used stew cubed)
- Bok Choy
- Mushroom (You can use whatever vegetables you like)
- Egg Noodles (Not precooked)
- Chicken Broth
- Oyster Sauce
- Corn Starch
Basically you cook the beef, marinated in a bit of oyster sauce, sugar, salt, and ground up garlic, first. Cook it in a pot with some oil until it’s no longer red on the outside. Then pour in about 2 cups of chicken broth (more or less depending on how much sauce you want). Let that come to a boil. While you wait for it to boil, add the oyster sauce into the pot until you get the desired taste. Then add in the cut vegetables. Then take some corn starch and mix in a bowl with a bit of water. Add enough so that the sauce thickens a bit (this is to your preference, you can make it as thick as you like). Then the sauce is done, and you can set it aside.
For the noodles, heat up some oil so that it is super hot (be careful with this step!). Once the oil is heated, you can just put the noodles in and they should puff up immediately. This step should only take about 2-3 minutes.
Once done, pour the sauce onto the noodles and there you have it. =)
