For The Beef

  • 12 oz Flank Steak cut into 3” pieces
  • 1 tbs Olive or Canola Oil
  • 2 tsp Corn Starch
  • 1 tbs Shaoxing Rice Wine or Rice Wine Vinegar or White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • 1 tbs Light Soy Sauce

For The Noodles

  • 12 oz Fresh Wide Cut Flat Rice Noodles
  • 1 cup Fresh Soy Bean Sprouts
  • cup Onion Sliced
  • 2 tbs Shaoxing Rice Wine or Rice Wine Vinegar or White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • ½ tsp Minced Ginger Root
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil or Canola Oil
  • 2 tbs Light Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbs Dark Soy Sauce
  • ¼ tsp Salt optional
  • ¼ tsp Pepper
  • ¼ tsp Red Pepper Flakes optional
  • ¼ cup Chinese Chives chopped


  • Start by combining the light soy sauce, vinegar, sugar, corn starch and olive oil with the flank steak and marinate for 15 minutes in the fridge.
  • Over high heat saute the marinated steak for 5 minutes or until pink is starting to dissipate. Steak is done when internal temperature reaches 165F. Remove steak from pan and save for later.
  • After lowering the heat, add fresh noodles to the pan with the left-over steak juices and cook for 2-3 minutes until noodles begin to soften.
  • Stir in the sliced onions and soy bean sprouts to the pan and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the remaining vinegar, sugar, ginger, oil and both soy sauces. Cook for another 3 minutes.
  • Gently toss back the flank steak to the noodles, along with the Chinese chives and pepper. You may also add salt and red pepper flakes if desired. Simmer for another 5 minutes and serve warm.
  • Can be kept in an air tight container up to 4 days in fridge.
  • Reheat by stove top for 4-5 minutes over medium heat or microwave for 60-90 seconds.
  • Noodles may be fragile so gently fold when adding ingredients to them in the pan.
