Yien’s Recipe : Taiwan Beef Noodle

Hello! its has been a long time since i last share on my recipe. Not a profession cook but definately love cooking. Thanks to my bestie bird shit for getting the original taiwan beef noodle recipe from a friend’s taiwanese mom. However… sometimes.. hohoho.. things just need to be more innovative right?

Yeah. i get random. all the time :)

Ingredients :

  1. Fresh Beef Chuck or Tendon loin
  2. Oyster Sauce
  3. Sweet Sauce
  4. Spicy bean paste
  5. “Sha-Cha” Sauce
  6. Bottle of beer
  7. Spices bag
  8. Onion
  9. Spring Onion
  10. Red Chilli
  11. Garlic & Ginger
  12. Freshly made noodles

So this is simple. For the soup base, you can either use the old traditional way, which is so much better. Drenched the beef bone and cooked it in a big pot of water together with some onion for 3 hours. If you want to be fast. Just use the beef stock will do.

20140413_170559_resizedAfter 3 hours of beef bone soup, use a new pot… stir fried the sweet sauce, spicy bean paste, and “sha cha” sauce until fragrant. Add in the beef stock and add in oyster sauce and the spices bag.

20140413_180523_resizedTurn to medium low heat, add in the bottle of beer, onion, garlic and a bit of ginger then cover it. Oh.. please do add your beef in it and let it cooked for 1 to 2 hours.

20140413_163744_resizedFor my beef, use cut it in the opposite way so that you can break the veins connection so you dont have to do much work on it. Boiled it in a pot of water first to get rid of the blood. Then only you add in the big family pot together with the other ingredients.

20140413_185002_resizedLastly, boiled your noodle. Add some salt and olive oil which i always like.

20140413_184644_resizedAnd you can scoop out the goodies

20140413_184653_resizedReady to be served. Oh nom nom nom nom!

Seoul 6 : Bau House Dog Cafe, Namdaemun, Pork Trotter, KTX, Busan

[3.1.2014] Last day in Seoul. It was quiet rush though. Should have stayed at Seoul longer. Too many things too little time. One of our Ultimate Goal to Seoul is the Bau House Dog Cafe!!!

IMG_5116Grab our fast breakfast at the train station…

IMG_5117Rush up and down and we finally reach Hongdae…BUT SADNESS.. we purposely rush to Hongdae for the dog cafe and it only open at 1.30pm which is like 3 hours later. EMO

IMG_5118Haih.. why u no open earlier. :( We peep into the dog cafe and there are so many doggies inside. Huhuhuhuhuhuhu!!! Hello Doggie.. Byebye Doggie…

Anyway.. this is the direction for Bau House Dog Cafe

  • Location: Hapjeong Station (Line 2): It’s in the black shiny building between Exit 3 and 4. Wont miss it!

IMG_5123Zui loves it simply its brown <3

IMG_5124We proceed to Namdaemun for lunch. Just because it was closed on the 1st of January so we decided to come back.

IMG_5128

IMG_5129It was just hell lot of people. OMG. Shoulder rubbing session when searching for the food alley.

IMG_5127With the help of phone GPS and map.. we finally found it. Settled down in a local restaurant which is packed with locals… Food must be good!

IMG_5130Sorry i couldnt really named all the food we ordered. We just simple point out the samples in front. Hehehehe!

IMG_5132We had this beef soup…. again..

IMG_5133Some spicy noodle….

IMG_5135And… the main course.. Pork Trotter. Shinny and silky smooth huh!

IMG_5136It was so good! (dont have the piggy smell if you were wondering) The pork is tender and juicy and the skin.. well, it will just make you keep eating. You doesnt feel the greasy aura from the pork trotter at all!

IMG_5138Lunch is not bad afterall!

IMG_5139Went to the train station to catch our 3 hours journey to Busan with KTX.

IMG_5142Reminder : Its better to pre-book the ticket earlier. We only booked the ticket a day before and most of the train were fully booked. Good seats as well.. what left is….

20140102_214140I dint get to try their persimmon!!! SADNESSS….!!! Huhuhuhu.. but anyhow i manage to get strawberries instead. Hehehe

The 2 differences between their strawberries and our strawberries are :

IMG_51051.) They are so sweet. Not even a bit sourish. Until you eat it. then you know what do i mean :)

IMG_51112.) Their strawberries are juicy… hell lot of juice… When u take a bite, the juice just burst
