Stir-fried Beef with Rice Noodle

===================

Chinese rice noodles are available both fresh and dried. They can be wide or narrow and they are even available in sheets. Since they don’t contain gluten, they can be eaten by people on gluten-free diets. The dried noodles must be soaked in hot water before use (not boiled) and the fresh noodles cook very quickly in soups or stir-fries.

-------------------------------

For this dish, which may appear as beef cho fun on Chinese restaurant menus, it is best if you can buy fresh, wide rice noodles from your local Chinese grocer. The classic version combines the noodles with stir-fried beef strips, Chinese mushrooms, scallions and bean sprouts in a soy-vinegar sauce.

------------------------------

However, other versions, substitute baby corn for the bean sprouts and a fermented black bean sauce for the soy-vinegar sauce. Of course you could add or substitute Chinese snow peas if you prefer. You may have to adjust the sauce slightly if you do.

This recipe looks delicious. Have been eating a lot of rice noodles lately and like them better than wheat.
