Reviews – Chinese Braised Beef and Noodles Recipes

I made this last night and I thought it was very good. I made a few changes based on personal preference, and what I had on hand. I used ground ginger (fresh would have been better), I added snap peas, carrots, and a whole sliced onion (next time I would add even more veggies), I doubled the sauce, omitted the salt, and added crushed red pepper. We all enjoied this one, and I’ll definately make this again!

after a busy day at work this meal serves serenity and sustenance. I followed the recipe except that i did not have any five spice powder – instead i made my own by combining cinnamon, cloves(powder), star anise(powder), cumin and green peppercorns.i then proceeded to add the garlic and ginger, blended till all spices were mixed. I added this spice mixture to 3/4 lbs of sirloin tip for 15 min, then cooked till almost done. I then added 1/2 cup of beef broth 2 chopped baby bok choy, shiitake mushrooms and snow peas.added the egg noddles at then end (i added maybe a teaspoon of cornstarch just to thicken the sauce)- a little Orient meets Europe and the new world. A truly elegant dish in only 20 minutes.

I cheated on this recipe by using leftover beef sliced thin. The garlic and meat were sauted together for a few minutes. I miss read the directions and mixed the spices with the soy sauce and broth. I used linguine for the noodles and the sauce was absorbed nicely. This is a wonderful quick dinner solution.
