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 vegetarian option.

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.
As the beef starts to brown, add the Shaosing rice wine and follow quickly with the Tenderstem®. Stir-fry together for thirty seconds and then add the dark soy sauce and toss well.
Add in the egg noodles and give it a good mix, then add in the beansprouts. Toss together and season with low sodium light soy sauce and oyster sauce, cook tossing and stirring for less than a minute then serve immediately.
