Asian Dumpling Recipe

I make Beef Ho Fun the way my father makes it. He likes not one thing better than to use his freedom pass to take the bus up to China Town, pick up some Fresh Ho Fun from Lo’s Noodle Factory, and cook us a gourmet treat for dinner in the evening.

While Chinese restaurants offer Ho Fun noodles cooked and served in a assortment of ways, the most ordinary dish involves ho fun, been, bean sprouts and spring onions. A good wok and stove with wok hei.

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 600g fresh ho fun noodles, or an equivalent amount of dried noodles
  • 300g fresh rump steak
  • 2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Rice Wine
  • 1 teaspoon corn flour
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely diced
  • 1 coin sized slice of ginger
  • 300g beansprouts
  • 2 sprigs of spring onion, roughly chopped

Method

Slice up the beef into thin slivers approximately 1 inch in width. Remember to cut versus the grain, or it will be tough. In a bowl, mix the soy sauce, rice wine, corn flour and vegetable oil. Mix the beef into this marinade and leave for at least 30 minutes. The rice wine will make the beef delightfully tender.

Loosen the fresh noodles in a great deal of warm water, using your hands to discerned the person noodles. Then rinse them as they may be oily, but be careful not to break them or it’ll be hard to pick them up with chopsticks.

Heat galore oil in the wok on a medium heat, and add the garlic for 30 seconds. Prevent the garlic from burning by stirring it. Add the beef and stir vigorously on a high heat for two minutes. Place the cooked beef on a clean plate.

Add more oil to the wok and stir fry the bean sprouts for a minute on a high heat. Then turn the heat down and add the noodles. Add a few drops of water and cover the wok for a couple of minutes to let the noodles steam.

Uncover the noodles and mix them with the bean sprouts. I prefer to use chopsticks rather than a wok shovel, as a wok shovel will tend to break the noodles. Add numerous soy sauce and stir again. Then mix in the beef.

Finally add the roughly chopped spring onions and stir vigorously for a minute.

Serve on a warm plate with Chinese tea.

Enjoy The Meal

This dish is best shared with friends and family, and is a great precursor to a session of Mah Jong. While beef is the most ordinary meat, a great deal of people use chicken, pork or prawns instead. Lamb doesn’t tend to go too well with fried noodles. And most fishes are unsuitable as the meat falls apart when stirred.
