Oyster Sauce Beef & Tenderstem® Chow Mein

Tenderstem® has teamed up with international TV chef and cookery author Ching He Huang to create a delicious dish for Chinese New Year.

Noodles symbolize longevity at Chinese New Year so this is the perfect dish. Traditional oysters are also eaten at Chinese New Year because they symbolize prosperity – a highly prized seafood so the “oyster sauce” makes a great symbolic addition here.

For those wanting to cut down on carbs, use courgetti instead of egg noodles.

Substitute Baked Firm tofu instead of the beef if you are veganuary.
