tomato beef chowmein
Posted September 24, 2010on:
Too many homegrown tomatoes recently, so this recipe takes care of them. Noodles get nicely soft in this dish and still make for a nice finger food item.
– wheat or egg noodles of choice (i use chinese wheat noodles. ramen noodles are ok, the korean thick noodles really work well).
– beef (sliced thin)
– yellow onions (or sweet onions or white, whatever)
– garlic (a few cloves)
– a few ripe tomatoes
– oyster sauce
– soy sauce as needed
Prep the beef into thin slices, marinated in soy sauce, oyster sauce, olive oil, pepper, and sugar.
Chop up the tomato into wedges
slice onions to be sautee’
give garlic cloves a few good whacks.
undercook the noodles and drain.
Heat some oil in a wok, toss in garlic, then quickly throw in onions and tomatoes. Cook for a 2 minutes on high heat. Toss in the beef and noodles. Stir constantly, then add oyster sauce to taste. If your tomatoes are not ripe enough, might need to add sugar. Serve with ground pepper and cilantro. Yum!
A mom in May’s playgroup just gave birth to a baby boy last week, so now moms in the group take turn delivering food to that mom. Hence, all the cooking.
