Beef Noodle


This is my simple version of Beef Noodle. The recipe is good for about 8 really hungry peoples! Ha Ha! Here, I have used some Chinese preserved vegetables for the beef mixture. Another name for the vegetable is "Mui Choy" or sometimes referred to as Hakka/Cantonese preserved vegetable. They are sold in most Asian grocers in small plastic packaging or if you're around chinatown, they are usually presented outside the stores in a big jar.

The preserved vegetables provide a good balance to the taste and texture of the beef mixture. And the stems of these vegetable also adds some crunchy texture to the noodle serving. Okay, do try this recipe, if you feel like having a bowl of dried Beef Noodle.

Dumplings

I'm actually laughing at myself! What have I got into? Trying to make dumplings?? Well, I have seen my late grandmother make them a long time ago. I can remember the ingredients but not the measurements! So, it took me about two hours to come up with the perfect recipes, and I'm glad I did! It was an instant hit! They were all gone, all gobbled up!

Make the dough first, add about 480 to 500g of all-purpose flour with 300ml of water. Knead the dough and let it rest. You should be able to make 40 dumplings with the dough. Meanwhile, prepare the filling for the dumplings. Click here for the dumpling wrappers video.
