Mee Hoon Birthday

Equipment

  • blender

Ingredients
  

  • 200 g fine rice vermicelli noodles

Blended/pureed ingredients

  • 2 shallots
  • 3 cloves garlic

Proteins

  • 4 fish balls sliced into 5mm slices
  • 100 g beef for stir fry sliced thinly
  • 100 g peeled shrimp cut into 1cm bits

Veggies & other

  • 2 bunches choy sum or other asian green veggies
  • 1 small carrot sliced into thin matchsticks
  • ½ chicken stock cube
  • ground white pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp neutral oil
  • ¼ cup water plus more as needed

Instructions
 

  • Soak the noodles according to package directions.
  • Blend the blended ingredients together with adequate water to make a thick paste. Set aside.
  • Heat up the oil in a wok or large pan, then stir fry the pureed ingredients. It should cook without burning and reduce the amount of water in the purree. (It is important that you did not add too much water when pureeing or else you are going to end up waiting for quite some time.)
  • Add the proteins to the wok and stir fry until just cooked.
  • Add the stock cube and pepper, stir well.
  • Add the noodles and veg into the wok, stir fry. Add ¼ cup of water to allow the noodles to be braised until cooked. Continuously stir to avoid sticking and to ensure even mixing of the ingredients. Taste, and add more seasoning if required.
  • Add more water if the wok has dried but the noodles still seem uncooked. The end product should be dry-ish, so once you think the noodles are mostly cooked, stop adding water and continue to stir fry until its is moist but there is no liquid left.
  • Serve topped with any desired garnishes like fried onions or chilies!
