1 comment

Do you sometimes encounter with the days when opening the fridge, you see random pieces of ingredients but have little idea how to make them into a proper meal? Good news! The dish of rice noodles stir fry with meat and vegetables is perfect for this situation.

Basically you just need to gather the available ingredients, cut each into strips, and stir fry them all together with the rice noodles. It is a very spontaneous dish, requesting little time to prepare. The unique flavor coming from the rice noodles and the seasonings (soy sauce, oyster sauce, etc.) reminds you the typical Asian flavors. It is indeed a dish costing little time and super easy to prepare.

Before jumping to the recipe, let me just go through few tips to make the cooking process easier.

HOW TO PREPARE THE RICE NOODLES

I've tried various methods to prepare the rice noodles for a stir-fry dish, including those shown in online tutorials as well as the ones suggested on the package. Many had suggested to soak or cook the rice noodles in hot water in advance. However my experiences had shown me that rice noodles prepared like that tended to break into short pieces during stir-frying.

The way I recommend to avoid the rice noodles from breaking into pieces and at the same time achieving a bouncy texture is to soak them in COLD WATER.

Soak the rice noodles in cold water for 20 minutes before draining off. Then keep the softened rice noodles in a bowl for air dry without covering up. In this way the rice noodles shall be with an elastic texture and ready to be tossed in the wok.

THE COOKING PROCEDURES

An easy formula applicable to make any rice noodles stir-fry dish:

  • Soak the rice noodles in cold water for softening
  • Stir-fry the protein (meat, shrimps, tofu, egg, etc.) one by one separately
  • Stir-fry the vegetables
  • Add in the rice noodles and the condiments
  • Add back the protein
  • Give a final toss
