Hokkien Noodles Recipe
After almost 8 years of blogging, most people in my circle are aware that I did this food blog with my parents and sister.
After digesting the initial shock at the idea that anyone would enter such an venture with their immediate family (“How do you guys work together!?” – the response: patience, love, and lots of backseat cooking), another common response is something along the lines of , “Well, what did you have for dinner last night? You must have cooked something amazing!”
At which point I found myself reliving the hodgepodge of cold leftovers and fried eggs on toast I’d consumed the night before.
We’ve all been there––a busy night when the idea of cooking dinner seems completely out of the realm of possibility. Those nights when perusing the takeout menu in your junk drawer seem like the only option for your dinner. I see. I am ONE OF YOU.
Stir Fry Chicken With Hokkien Noodles
But that’s why my blog’s recipes tend to fall into the “Quick and Easy” category. Recipes like 15 Minute Coconut Curry Noodle Soup, Pork & Basil Stir-Fry, or Take-Away Chicken Curry (10 ingredients, 15 minute affair). This is my favorite type of cooking.
In short: Few essential ingredients, less time in the kitchen, more time eating & Netflix. That’s my work night motto.
As I mentioned, you only need 10 ingredients, most of which you probably already have. Hokkien noodles may be the only ingredient you might be missing from your pantry/refrigerator.
Hokkien noodles originate from the Fujian (Hokkien) province of China, but are also quite common in Malaysia and Singapore.
Minute Saucy Stir Fry Noodles
Hokkien noodles are a kind of fresh egg noodles. They are basically what we know here in the US as lo mein noodles.
You can find them pre-cooked and oiled, or you can find fresh lo mein egg noodles that need to be boiled first.
Make sure you quickly read the package directions to determine if you can add the noodles directly to the stir fry or need to boil them first.
If the noodles stubbornly stick together into a lump, dip them in a bowl of very hot water to loosen them, then drain.

No problem. In a pinch, you can also use fresh udon noodles, or other noodles that can be fried. You can also use our homemade egg noodles (boil first and drain before frying), which you can make with just flour, eggs and water.
I also put some chicken in there too, to make it a complete meal––but for all the vegetarians out there, feel free to leave that out, or add mushrooms and/or other vegetables.
If you want to add more vegetables to your dish, you can add greens such as peas or baby bok choy, or serve them as a side.
Heat a carbon steel skillet over high heat until smoking. Add 1 tablespoon of oil, and sauté the chicken until opaque. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Fry for 1 minute, and add the scallions and red chilies. Sauté until the leeks start to wilt, about 10 seconds.
Add pre-cooked fresh noodles and stir-fry, adding a little hot water if you have trouble breaking them down.

This stir-fried beef noodle recipe only takes 10 minutes to cook, perfect for making at night! The highlight of this dish, apart from the Hokkien noodles of course, is the soft and tender chunks of beef.
What makes beef ‘velvet’ according to you? It all boils down to using the right combination of salting ingredients and the most effective salting technique. More on this below. Spoiler: your hands have to be dirty.

Have you ever wondered how meat (be it chicken, beef, seafood, etc.) in a Chinese restaurant is always tender and succulent with a delicious and flavorful coating on every piece?
Malaysian Hokkien Mee (kl Version)
The velvet technique was developed to create tender meat covered with a light velvety coating of flavour. This is achieved through taking the following steps:
To complete the dish, usually other ingredients such as vegetables and noodles (if using) will be fried then the velvety beef will be added back into the wok in the last 30 seconds or so to finish it off.
To get started, the first thing you should do is marinate the beef. As discussed above, the key here is to massage the marinade into the beef chunks to tenderize them and help the spices meld properly.
Before marinating, cut the beef into small pieces. For best texture, cut with the ground beef. This technique isn’t limited to beef, you’ll want to use it when sautéing chicken, pork and lamb as well.
Hokkien Noodle Stir Fry With Black Bean Sauce
Cutting the grain makes the meat easier to chew because it shortens the length of the muscle fibers. As a result, coupled with marinating using the velvet technique, the meat is tender and flavorful!
For this recipe, marinate beef in soy sauce, oyster sauce, Shaoxing wine, oil, cornstarch, black pepper and minced garlic. Soak for at least 15 minutes to overnight.
The beauty of cooking with fresh Hokkien noodles is that all you have to do is loosen the noodles in boiling hot water.
First, activate the aromatics. Sauté thick slices of shallots, minced garlic and some scallions (scallions) in 1 tablespoon of neutral-flavored oil. It’s best to use a non-stick frying pan or pan.

Once the garlic is slightly golden (it happens fast!), push the onion mixture to the edges of the pan to make room for the beef.
Add the beef, spreading it out in a single layer to allow each piece to heat straight from the pan to caramelize. Do not stir the beef, let it simmer for about 1 minute until it caramelizes, then turn and sear the other side for another minute.
By this time the beef should be 70% to 80% done. Transfer beef and onion mixture to a bowl/plate and set aside.
In the same pan (no need to wash), sauté the thickly sliced mushrooms in a little more oil. Cook over high heat until the mushrooms are slightly caramelized. This will take about 5 minutes so a little patience will be well rewarded! Getting the color on the mushroom develops the most amazing taste. A very important technique when mushrooms are the star of a dish like my Creamy Mushroom Sauce!

Now, add the trimmed and tied peas and sauté for about a minute. Don’t overcook them because you want the snow peas to stay fresh!
