Chinese comfort food. Black bean @warialdabeef Girello on crunchy crisp noodles.
I marinated 150g of shredded Girello in 3 teaspoons of a rough paste of salted black beans with garlic, 2 tablespoons of cornflour, a splash of light soy sauce, a teaspoon of sugar and a tablespoon of minced ginger soaked in rice wine.
I fried off a sliced large onion half, took it out of the wok and then browned the beef. Next in went sliced carrots, two ladlefuls of my concentrated homemade gelatinous beef stock, half a teaspoon of oyster sauce, a minced garlic clove and 2 teaspoons of finely ground Sichuan pepper.
When the sauce thickened, I threw in a bunch of homegrown bak choy, homegrown garlic chives and a generous splash of Vietnamese fish sauce. Crisp egg noodles were warmed through in the oven to receive this sauce, creating both crisp and soft umami noodles. Wonderfully satisfying!
