Chinese Beef Noodles

One of my favourite foods is Chinese. It took me ages to figure out how to execute it properly but now I've mastered the key ingredients its all good. The thing to remember is its all about the balance. So, the main ingredients are

Chinese 5 spice

Today we had beef noodles. I use stir fry beef strips. First fry your onion chopped garlic chilli and ginger. Its all about how much you like it, its not set in stone so use as much or as little as you like. Then throw in your meat. If im using chicken I always use technique called velveting, mix egg white and cornflour and coat your raw chicken this will keep the meat moist and completely change the texture. Fry it till its cooked and check for seasoning. At this point its time to add your 5 spice stock sugar and honey. You need the honey to make a glaze for your dish. Remember balance so add a little at a time and keep tasting!! Chuck in your cooked noodles or rice test for seasoning again then add your soy. Job done. You will notice no salt went in, this is because soy is salty anyway. Obviously you can add vegetables but what you use again depends on your own taste, its your dish your way. Enjoy!!
