Stir fried beef noodles with salty soy sauce, fresh bok choy and bits of seared steak… This is a delicious dinner full of the most amazing Asian flavors. And it is so easy to make at home, believe me!
I made these fried beef noodles because I still had a good portion of pre cooked noodles left after preparing a Japanese yaki udon dish last week.
I tasted a lovely salty soy sauce noodle stir fry in Temple Street, Hong Kong a couple of years ago and I thought I should try to make a similar yummy dinner with these leftover noodles.
And I was right. Even though I used different noodles this time for my stir fry, this dish was again lip smacking delicious. And you need so little ingredients to make it!
Yum, what a delicious Asian dinner with vibrant flavors.
A dish that you can prepare without too much effort… Even if you are not a great cook, I am sure that you can pull this recipe off.
Even with your eyes closed.
It is so easy!
Beef Noodles Stir Fry
The bok choy is actually a last minute addition.
I happened to find this lovely vibrant fresh bok choy in my supermarket that very same day I was thinking of doing a quick and easy noodle stir fry for dinner. Finding fresh bok choy was rather a coincidence because I don’t see it there very often in my local supermarket.
So I guess that was a sign!
If you can’t find any bok choy, then you can also use spinach, kale, sliced white cabbage or bean sprouts instead.
So here it is: stir fried beef noodles with salty soy sauce, fresh bok choy and bits of seared steak… A delicious dinner full of Asian flavors to try out at home!
- 10,5 oz steak (300 g)
- 1 large garlic clove chopped
- 10,5 oz fresh bok choy (300 g)
- 1 tbsp fresh ginger grated
- 3 tbsp soy sauce
- 3 tbsp oyster sauce
- 1 tsp palm sugar
- 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
- 10,5 oz egg noodles (300 g), fresh or dried
- 2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 1 tsp hot chili sauce
- 1 tbsp fish sauce
Place the steak in a deep dish. Add half of the oyster sauce and soy sauce. Coat the steak with this marinade.
Cover the steak with cling film and place it in the fridge to marinate for 10 minutes. In the meantime chop the bok choy. Check the cooking instructions for the noodles if you need to cook them before stir frying them. Pour half of the vegetable oil in a non-stick pan and place it over high heat until hot. Then add the marinated steak.
Sear the steak quickly on all sides. I like to cook the steak rare for this recipe. Cook it longer if you like it medium.
Then remove the steak from the pan and put it aside to cool. Pour the remaining vegetable oil in the pan you just baked the steak in. Also add the chopped garlic.
Place it over medium-high heat until hot. Stir fry the garlic for a minute. Then add the chopped bok choy and grated ginger.
Stir for another 2 minutes. Then add the remaining soy sauce and oyster sauce. Season with the chili sauce and fish sauce. Also add half a small glass of water.
Stir and cook for 2 minutes. Slice the cooked steak up and add it to the bok choy.
- Stir the beef and vegetables well. Then add the noodles.
Give all the ingredients a good stir and cook until most of the liquid has gone and the noodles are coated nicely with the sauce. Check the seasoning and add extra fish sauce or hot chili sauce to taste. Scoop the noodles, beef and vegetables into bowls. Serve hot.
