For the Beef:

  • Beef flank steak: 250g about 1/2 lb, thinly sliced against the grain
  • Soy sauce: 1 tablespoon for marinating the beef
  • Cornstarch: 1 teaspoon for marinating the beef
  • Sesame oil: 1 teaspoon for marinating the beef

For the Noodles:

  • Flat rice noodles ho fun: 400g (about 14 oz), fresh or dried. If using dried, soak them in warm water until softened.
  • Bean sprouts: 1 cup washed and drained
  • Scallions: 3 cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Garlic: 2 cloves minced
  • Soy sauce: 2 tablespoons for stir-frying
  • Dark soy sauce: 1 tablespoon for color
  • Oyster sauce: 1 tablespoon for flavor
  • Sesame oil: A dash for finishing the dish
  • Vegetable oil: 2 tablespoons for stir-frying


Marinate the Beef:

  • In a bowl, combine the thinly sliced beef with soy sauce, cornstarch, and sesame oil. Mix well and let it marinate for at least 15 minutes.

Prepare the Noodles:

  • If using dried rice noodles, soak them in warm water until they are soft, then drain. If using fresh noodles, separate them gently with your hands. Set aside.

Cook the Beef:

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of vegetable oil in a wok or large frying pan over high heat. Add the marinated beef slices and stir-fry until they are just cooked through. Remove the beef from the wok and set aside.

Stir-Fry the Noodles:

  • In the same wok, add another tablespoon of vegetable oil. Add the minced garlic and scallions, stir-frying for a few seconds until fragrant.
  • Add the rice noodles to the wok, tossing and stirring to prevent them from sticking. If the noodles start to stick, a splash of water can help loosen them.

Season the Dish:

  • Add the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, and oyster sauce to the noodles. Continue to stir and toss the noodles until they are evenly coated with the sauce.

Combine Ingredients:

  • Return the cooked beef to the wok, along with the bean sprouts. Toss everything together for another 1-2 minutes, ensuring the ingredients are well mixed and heated through.

Finish and Serve:

  • Drizzle a dash of sesame oil over the dish and give it one final stir. Serve hot, garnished with additional scallions if desired.
