Oyster Sauce Beef & Tenderstem® broccoli Chow Mein

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 prefer a meat-free option. Or you can read our blog to discover more ideas for what to serve with steak.

  1. Heat a wok over high heat. When the wok is smoking, add the groundnut oil. Give the oil a swirl in the wok and then quickly add in the garlic, ginger and chilli and stir-fry a few seconds. Quickly add the beef and stir-fry together for a few seconds.

  2. As the beef starts to brown, add the Shaosing rice wine and follow quickly with the Tenderstem® broccoli. Stir-fry together for thirty seconds and then add the dark soy sauce and toss well.
