For the Beef Marinade

  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 2 tsp cornstarch (see notes for link to non-GMO brand)
  • 1/2 lb sirloin steak or tenderloin, cut into thin strips
  • pinch freshly ground black pepper

For the Sauce

  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp dark soy sauce
  • 2 tsp shaoxing wine
  • 1/2 tsp brown sugar
  • pinch ground white pepper

For the Stir-Fry

  • 1 lb fresh flat rice noodles (or about 8 ounces dried flat noodles, soaked in warm water until al dente)
  • 2 tbsp peanut oil, divided, plus more if needed
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 small onion, cut into thin slices
  • 2 cups fresh bean sprouts, rinsed
  • 2 scallions, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 cup bok choy


  • Pour the soy sauce, oyster sauce, pepper and cornstarch over the beef, and toss to coat. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes
  • Gently separate the flat rice noodles so they are not clumpy. Drizzle some peanut oil over the noodles to loosen them if necessary
  • In a small bowl, prepare the sauce by mixing together the soy sauce, dark soy sauce, shaoxing wine, brown sugar, and white pepper. Set it aside.
  • In a wok over medium-high heat, heat 1 tbsp of peanut oil. Add the beef and stop-fry until just no longer pink. Remove it and set aside.
  • Add the remaining 1 tbsp of oil to the wok, then toss in the garlic and onion. Stir-fry just until the onion becomes translucent
  • Increase the heat to high. Add the flat rice noodles to the wok, separating them, then add the sauce. Stir-fry until all the noodles are evenly coated.
  • Return the beef to the wok. Toss in the bean sprouts, scallions and bok choy at the last minute and turn off the heat. Serve immediately.
