BEST CHOW MEIN NOODLES?
Pan fried noodles (Hong Kong Style) taste the best for any kind of Asian style meal in our opinion. The package will say pan fried noodles which means they are already steamed and semi-dried so you don’t need to boil them. All you need to do to do is add oil to a pan with the noodles and a bit of water to quickly rehydrate them and you have crispy noodles just like a Chinese restaurant. You can usually only find pan fried noodles at your local Asian grocer otherwise you can use regular chow mein noodles that you boil and rinse under cold water before pan frying.
The key to getting Chinese style steak bites is to cut the flank steak into very thin slices, almost paper thin. This will not only cut down the cooking time but also help prevent overly chewy bites. Sometimes flank steak can be tough, just be sure to take your time when slicing the steak to make sure you get those thin slices. You can always place the steak in the freezer for 20 minutes which helps make slicing much easier.
