This beef recipe is very popular in Chinese
restaurants. Actually, I should say that this style of cooking
is very popular, because the beef in this recipe can be
substituted with either chicken or pork. So you can use
chicken or pork, but beef is the meat of choice for this

is the wide, smooth, and flat type. You can easily find
them in any grocery store. These rice noodles are usually
coated with a little oil to prevent them from sticking to

used in this recipe to flavor the beef.

Marinate the beef with the starch and
Chinese cooking wine. Massage with your hands to tenderize
it a bit.

bean sauce, salt, soy sauce, and chi sauce..
Add in the green and red peppers, and
cook for about a minute. Then add in the rice noodles.

Here's a tip for this beef recipe: the
rice noodles are tough to separate sometimes. What
I do is boil some water in a pot, and let them boil
for a very short time to soften them enough, and they'll
come apart easily. More
