Cookbook Countdown #8 ~ CAN Fried Kuay Tiao with Beef

 Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
Thank goodness for Cookbook Countdown!
Look what I found from my stash ~ Classic Asian Noodles (CAN)
Fried Beef Kuay Tiao (broad rice noodles fried with beeg)  page96

Vietnamese dried broad rice noodles,
beef sliced into matchsticks marinated in dark and light soy sauce,
a pinch of bicarb of soda, cornflour, cooking oil,
*soaked dried broad rice noodles in cold water,
drain and place in pot of boiling water, cook for 5 mins
remove from hot water, rinse in cold water, set aside
*heat oil in hot pan, saute minced garlic till fragrant
add noodles, light and dark soy sauce - mix well and cook for 5 mins
remove from pan and dish out in individual serving portions
*add oil in the pan, stir fry the choy sam (white cabbage) till limp
add the marinated beef and stir-fry for 10 secs (I did more)
*add thickener of cornflour, water, salt, light and dark soy sauces
