SERVES

4

Ingredients

300g (10 oz) thinly sliced steak (e.g. sirloin, striploin, rib eye, rump) 

400g (14 oz) fresh thin Chinese egg noodles 

2 tbsp vegetable oil 

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 

1 tbsp finely chopped ginger 

¼ small red cabbage, cut into bite-sized chunks 

¼ cup finely sliced spring onions 

1 tsp sesame oil 

 

Marinade: 

1 tbsp soy sauce 

1 tbsp Chinese Shaoxing wine 

½ tsp baking soda 

3 tsp corn flour (cornstarch) 

 

Stir-fry sauce: 

2 tbsp soy sauce 

2 tbsp oyster sauce 

1 tbsp Chinese Shaoxing wine 

1 tsp dark soy sauce 

½ tsp sugar 

1 tsp corn flour (cornstarch) 

Steps

Step 1

Combine the steak with the marinade ingredients. Set aside for later. 

Step 2

Combine the ingredients for the stir-fry sauce. 

Step 3

Heat a large pot of water over a high heat. When the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook for less than half a minute. Drain and run under tap water until cooled completely. Drain well and set aside for later.

Step 4

Heat the oil in a large wok or frying pan over high heat. Add the beef and spread it out in the pan. Allow to sear for a minute before stir-frying. Then add the garlic and ginger and stir-fry for another half a minute. Add the cabbage and stir-fry for a couple of minute or until just tender but still crunchy. Add the noodles and the stir-fry sauce and stir-fry until well combined. 

Step 5

Toss through the spring onion and drizzle over the sesame oil. Divide among serving plates and serve.
