Martin Yan’s Beef Chow Fun #SundaySupper

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.
