Black Pepper Beef Noodles

A humble and easy homemade chow mein noodle with beef and spaghettini.

Every time when we visit Ikea on Friday, we are super happy to have 2-3 plates of the black pepper beef noodle. They use spaghettini and the dish is a very common Chinese style of chow mein noodles. All of my family members love the tastes. Then I figure out, spaghettini is the best substitute for Chinese alkaline noodle when making a bowl of yummy chow mein.

Cook’s Note about making tender beef slices

  1. The vegetable oil should be mixed just before frying. The cold oil will protect our sauces and starch.
  2. After spreading the beef strips to the pan, let them stay for around 5-6 seconds until the starch finish gelatinization, otherwise the marinating tissues might be separated from the meat. In addition, be gentle and quick in the whole process.
  3. If you use a larger pan, you may need more oil to cover the bottom. After frying the beef strips, transfer the extra oil out and leave any around 1 tablespoon of oil in to fry the onion and peppers.
  4. The beef strips should be added at the very last of the noodle stir fry process, extra movement can cause the falling of the marinating coating and thus making the beef strips losing the tender juice texture.
