This week for Sunday Supper we are honouring chefs who have inspired us. I am so excited to be sharing with you not only my favourite Chinese dish but from the chef who inspired me to want to learn how to cook, Martin Yan. When I was seven we lived in Hong Kong and Martin Yan had a cooking show Yan Can Cook. I LOVED the show. He had this chant he would call out at the end of the show, “If Yan can cook so can you” and I would shout it out with him. Even thinking about it now brings back a flood of wonderful memories. He was so passionate about every dish he prepared and his skill with the knife was one that to this day I stand in awe of. I wanted to be a chef because of Martin Yan so I am so proud to be serving up one of his recipes. I am not sure if I would have done Master Chef Yan proud with my attempt but we really enjoyed it. It would have been a lot easier if my wok was larger. Must tell Santa I want a larger wok.
Beef Chow Fun
3 Tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tsp dry sherry or Chinese rice wine
1 tsp cornstarch
250g (1/2 lb) flank steak, thinly sliced across the grain
118mL (1/2 c.) beef broth
2 tsp oyster sauce
2 Tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, sliced
3 green onions, cut into 1-inch pieces
recipe from Martin Yan
Combine 1 tablespoon of the dark soy sauce, the rice wine, and cornstarch in a small bowl; add the beef and stir to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.
Combine the beef broth, oyster sauce and the remaining 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce in a bowl. Set the sauce aside.
Heat wok over medium-high heat. Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides. Add the onions and stir-fry for 1 minute.
Add the flank steak and the green onions; stir-fry until the beef is no longer pink, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Add the noodles to the wok and toss gently. Add the sauce toss to coat evenly. Continue to cook for about 2 minutes more. Serve immediately.
