Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Chinese Beef Noodle Soup

Slow-cooked, deliciously deep flavours and a little kick of spice!


Makes 3/4 Servings

15 Minutes Preparation Time

4 Hours Cooking Time


INGREDIENTS


BROTH

500g Beef Stewing Meat

2tbs Groundnut Oil

2tbs Ginger

2 Cloves Garlic

4 Spring Onions

6 Cherry Tomatoes

500ml Beef Stock

500ml Water

2tbs Hoisin Sauce

1tbs Red Chilli Flakes

2tsp Palm Sugar (or normal sugar)

½ Cup Light Soy Sauce

½ Cup Rice Wine

Medium Egg Noodles

2 Spring Onions

2 Carrots

½ Red Cabbage

1 Pepper


SPICE BAG

2 Star Anise

¼ tsp Cinnamon

1tsp Cumin Seeds

1tsp Fennel Seeds

¼ tsp Coriander Seeds

1tbs Sichuan Peppercorns

¼ tsp Chinese 5 Spice



METHOD

- Start by browning off the meat in a large cast iron pot over a high heat. Once browned, remove and leave to one side.

- In the same pan, lower the heat to low/medium and add the grated ginger and crushed garlic. Chop the tomatoes and onions and add the to the pot. Place the beef back into the pot and pour in the beef stock, water, hoisin sauce, sugar, soy and rice wine.

- Next, using a muslin spice bag (like below) or your own homemade muslin wrap using an elastic band to tie it together (which is what I used, and it worked) add the spices:


2 Star Anise

¼ tsp Cinnamon

1tsp Cumin Seeds

1tsp Fennel Seeds

¼ tsp Coriander Seeds

1tbs Sichuan Peppercorns

¼ tsp Chinese 5 Spice


- Add the bag into the pot and allow to simmer for 2 hours. Remove the beef once it starts to fall apart.

- Now, prepare the vegetables.

- Peel the carrots, then grate on the biggest setting. Slice the red cabbage finely and chop the pepper into small pieces. Add to the broth to cook for 5 minutes.

- Using two forks, shred the beef so it is pulled.

- Add enough nests of dry medium egg noodles to the broth to cook for a few minutes.

- Serve with the shredded beef and top with sliced fresh spring onion. So delicious!
