You don’t need to waste time going to an Asian restaurant just to eat an Asian-style cuisine that doesn’t satisfy your taste. Just prepare this Asian Beef And Broccoli Noodle at home; the sensation it can bring will amaze you.
When cooking this stir-fry dish, you have to make the sauce first. Just mix all the ingredients, including soy sauce, rice vinegar, and oyster sauce together. When your sauce is ready, just add it to your dish when the beef is cooked through.
Oyster sauce is a thick, rich, and syruplike sauce made by cooking oysters. It gives this delight a slightly sweet, salty, and earthy flavor.
Never forget to let the Chinese rice wine and arrowroot powder sit in a bowl with the beef for about 3-4 minutes. This step helps your beef have a perfectly tender texture. If you don’t like beef, you can use a chuck roast or a flank to replace this component.
