Here’s another great way to enjoy rice noodles, almost similar to Flat Noodles with Egg Gravy (Wat Tan Hor) but this combines soupy noodles with the savory flavor of beef and ginger in Ginger Beef Stir-Fry
You’ll get a wonderful soup-style noodles infused with the flavor of oyster sauce and ginger, with thin soy sauce to add some saltiness and some sugar to balance to it out. It’s a perfect quick fix for cold winter days when you want something warm and soupy but are craving noodles too.
As usual, you can find the flat rice noodles in your local Asian grocery stores for a little more than a buck. Look for dried and very wide, flat translucent noodles in a packet. Each packet is enough to make about two meals for two people.
It’s very important to soak them till they are malleable and to cook them down in a stir-fry to get them to al dente or you’ll end up with very chewy and tough noodles, similar to eating pasta which isn’t cooked fully. The goal is to soften them up to absorb the gravy. Once you’ve cooked everything, combine the gravy with the noodles only when you’re ready to eat or the noodles will soak up all the gravy and become soggy if left too long.
