This dish is a FAVORITE of mine when I go to Asian restaurants. Now I’ve recreated it at home ! I’ve added some more veggies that you usually get in the restaurant dish and it makes it a nice complete meal. This tastes so authentic and so delicious !
385 calories per serving
8 oz. rice noodles (pad thai work great – the wider the better, but whatever you can find !)
1/2 c beef broth
4 teaspoons black bean garlic sauce (available in the Asian section of your market)
1 T soy sauce
2 t brown sugar
2 t cornstarch
4 t peanut oil
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 small onion, thinly sliced
5 ½ c sliced and cut stir fry veggies (snow pea pods, carrots, broccoli, celery) (if using frozen, thaw them)
1/2 c water, divided
8 ounces sirloin steak, cut into thin slices
¼ c douchi (fermented black beans available at your local Asian market)
Prepare noodles according to package instructions then rinse in cold water and drain and set aside. Mix Sherry, sauces, sugar and cornstarch and set aside. Heat 2 t oil in a non stick skillet and cook ginger 30 seconds. Add onion and cook 5 minutes or until softened up a bit then add the rest of the veggies plus ¼ c water. Cover and cook 5 minutes or until the veggies are softened a bit. Add the veggies to the noodles and wipe out your pan. Add 2 t oil to the pan and cook steak 3-4 minutes to brown it then add in the cornstarch and cook 2 minutes to thicken the sauce. Now add the veggies and noodles to the pan with ¼ c water and the fermented black beans. Heat through for about 2-3 minutes and serve immediately.
