This Beef Chow Mein stays true to the traditional recipe and has a ton of flavor that everybody will love.




  • 156 grams Bread Flour
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt
  • 1 egg
  • water
  • ¼ cup oil For Frying


  • 1 tablespoons peanut oil
  • 1 Baby Bok Choy, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 Cup Bean Sprouts
  • 23 cloves of garlic, diced


  • ½ Pounds Strip steak with fat trimmed and cross cut into 12 inch strips
  • 2 Tablespoon Peanut Oil
  • 2 Tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablepoon Cornstarch

Noodle Sauce

  • 1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoon of soy sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon oyster sauce
  • Dash pepper


  1. Add all ingredients, minus one tablespoon of peanut oil,  from the ‘Beef’ section to a bowl and allow to marinate in fridge while the noodles are being made.
  2. In large bowl, mix flour and salt
  3. In separate bowl, add egg and water to make a total weight of 78g
  4. Beat the eggs and water
  5. Slowly mix egg/water mixture into flour
  6. Once mixed, knead for 5 minutes (do not add water) in the bowl
  7. Leave bowl, loosely covered and let sit for 30 Minutes
  8. Knead for an additional minute and should be a smooth ball at this point
  9. Sprinkle flour onto rolling mat and use rolling pin to roll out dough to 1mm to 2 mm thick. BE PATIENT
  10. Cut thinly with knife. In the video, she folds the dough, but I just roll it and cut the individual noodles.
  11. Once all noodles are cut, they are ready for a boil
  12. Add to Boiling water for 2-3 minutes and then strain.
  13. Set Noodles aside.
  14. Mix all ingredients from noodle sauce
  15. Add 1 tablespoon of peanut oil to wok and heat
  16. Add baby bok choy, green onions, bean sprouts, and garlic to wok in that order.
  17. Cook until all ingredients are done. Remove veggies and set aside.
  18. Add one tablespoon of peanut oil to wok and heat
  19. Add beef and cook, while constantly stirring, until done.
  20. Remove and set aside
  21. Add ¼ cup of peanut oil to wok and heat
  22. Once heated, add Noodles and fry for approximately 2 minutes or until noodles are crispy. The goal here is NOT to make them crispy like the ‘from a can’ variation, but noodles that have been fried enough so they are crispy on the outside, but still noodle-like.
  23. Add sauce to wok and allow to thicken
  24. Re-add the vegetables and beef and mix everything.
  25. Plate and serve!
