Ingredients for Beef Chow Fun

 1 lb beef flank steak

 5 tsp dark soy sauce

 1 tbsp Chinese rice wine or dry sherry

 ½ tsp sugar

 a few drops sesame oil

 1 tsp cornstarch

 ½ pound fresh rice noodles

 1 8-ounce can baby corn

 2 garlic cloves

 1 tbsp Chinese black bean sauce

 1½ to 2 tbsp oyster sauce

 5 tbsp oil for stir frying, or as needed

Directions for Beef Chow Fun

1. Cut the flank steak across the grain into thin strips about 1/4-inch thick. Add the dark soy sauce, rice vinegar, sugar, sesame oil, and cornstarch. Marinate the steak for 15 minutes.

2. While the steak is marinating, prepare the vegetables: rinse the baby corn in warm running water and drain. Smash, peel, and chop the garlic cloves.

3. If using refrigerated rice noodles, rinse them in warm water to loosen. Cut the noodles into ½ to ¾ inch strips.

4. Heat the wok and add 2 tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the beef. Lay flat and let brown for a minute. Stir in the black bean sauce and stir-fry the beef until it is browned and nearly cooked through. Remove from the wok.

5. Clean out the wok and add 2 more tablespoons oil. When the oil is hot, add the garlic and stir-fry until aromatic. Add the rice noodles and stir fry until browned.

6. Push the rice noodles up to the side of the wok and add 1 more tablespoon oil. When the oil is hot, add the baby corn. Stir-fry briefly, then mix with the noodles. Stir in the oyster sauce.

7. Add the beef back into the wok. Mix everything together and serve hot.
