Serves: 4
  • 250g (1/2 lb) dried wide rice noodles
  • 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
  1. Soak the noodles in warm water until softened, about 30 minutes; drain.
  2. 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.
  3. Combine the beef broth, oyster sauce and the remaining 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce in a bowl. Set the sauce aside.
  4. Heat wok over medium-high heat. Add the oil, swirling to coat the sides. Add the onions and stir-fry for 1 minute.
  5. Add the flank steak and the green onions; stir-fry until the beef is no longer pink, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  6. 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.
