Alice's Spicy Beef Noodle Soup

I got this recipe via a friend, who got it from her friend Alice. I added a few things to the basic idea. It is a Taiwanese beef noodle soup.

I used 700g of chuck steak in the pressure cooker this arvo.

Serves 3-4 people

Soup Base


700g of chuck steak
1/3 jar of chilli bean paste
2T white Sugar
1 cm long ginger
2 star anise
2tsp whole sichuan chilli pepper
1/2 bulb of garlic, peeled and bruised
1/4C soy sauce
2T chopped coriander
4 green onions sliced side ways
1 tsp Chinese five-spice powder
2T shao xing wine

Cut beef flank into large bite size cubes and marinate with sugar. Fry meat with chinese cooking wine and the thinly sliced ginger. When meat is browned, add 1/3 of the jar of chilli bean sauce, the 1/4Cup of soy sauce and enough water to cover the meat in your pot. Put in 2 star anise and half a bulb of garlic (peeled and bruised) and 2tsp of sichuan chilli pepper (left whole, coriander, green onion & five spice. Simmer until meat soft (about 2.5hrs) Dilute with hot water when serving.

Serve with pickled mustard greens & vege

1 pkt mustard green per flank
1 clove of garlic
1 big spicy hot chilli

Thick taiwanese rice noodle sticks
