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.




Preparation Time:

40 Minutes

Cooking Time:

20 Minutes



½ Lb. of Beef Flank Steak cut into narrow strips two inches long

2 Teaspoons thin Soy sauce

1 Teaspoon Dry White wine

2 Teaspoons Cornstarch

Mix in a bowl.



4 Chinese Dried Mushrooms (soak in hot water until soft, discard the hard stems and cut them into thin strips)

3 Scallions (cut into 1 ½ inch lengths including the green part)

½ Lb. Fresh Bean Sprouts

1 Lb. of Fresh Rice Noodles

½ Teaspoon Salt

5 Tablespoons Oil for Stir-frying


Sauce Mixture:

2 Tablespoons Black Soy Sauce

1 Teaspoon Dry White Wine

2 Teaspoons Chinese Red Vinegar

¼ Teaspoon sugar


Cooking Instructions:

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan or wok. Add the scallions and mushrooms and stir-fry them for 60 seconds.
  2. Add the beef mixture and continue stir-frying until the beef loses its redness.
  3. Add the sauce mixture and re-heat while Stir-frying until the sauce just begins to boil.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium, add the rice noodles and toss them until they are evenly coated with sauce. Serve Hot.


Stir-fried beef with rice noodles makes an excellent lunch served by itself or with a small tossed salad.

For supper you might want to add a stir-fried green vegetable such as asparagus, broccoli or green beans.

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