Hoisin Beef Noodle Stir-fry. Sweet, savoury chewy thick noodles with tender hoisin flavoured beef, gai-lan, and red bell peppers. A delicious option for dinner that takes less than 30 minutes to make. This works well as leftovers for lunch.
This hoisin beef noodle stir fry is truly scrumptious and it hits the spot every time. The beef is quickly marinated in a way to make the beef soft, chewy and bouncy. If you're not a fan of beef, feel free to substitute for chicken or pork. Then when you pair the beef with that crunchy leafy gai-lan and red bell peppers with the chewy noodles it is a dance party in your mouth!
As mentioned above, these noodles would serve well as leftovers up to 3-4 days. I love making them ahead and re-heating them for later in the microwave or pan.
Where can I find these noodles?
The noodles I'm using in this hoisin beef noodles recipe are egg noodles. They are yellow, thick and chewy. You can purchase them at certain Asian grocers sold in the refrigerated section. I bought mine at H-Mart and T&T. If you can't find these noodles and have searched high and low, feel free to use udon noodles or even wide thick rice noodles.
Should I boil these noodles?
I wouldn't recommend boiling them but you only want to blanch for 30-40 seconds at most. Then quickly strain them. Anymore and the noodles will go soggy if you pan fry them.
Tips for making hoisin beef with noodles
- Always have your veggies and protein chopped thinly. When you chop it this way, it allows for your ingredients to mix better with the noodles since noodles are long and thin as well
- Pre-marinate your meat for 5 minutes and baking soda and cornstarch as a must to make this beef tender
- Pre-mix your noodle sauce. It'll make things easier when you toss the sauce over your noodles and prevents the noodles from overcooking because you have your noodle sauce ready to throw in
- Don't overcook your noodles. Your noodles are cooked so once they combine with the sauce and the remaining ingredients get those noodles onto a serving plate asap!
