開鑊,首先炒香牛肉,撈起備用
見到d仙氣嗎?炒到有鑊氣就係睇有無ed仙氣 lol

由於全程開到最猛火,燒到隻鑊好熱先落食材,食物既水份迅速蒸發出煙,食落先會焦脆香口,依個係亦係炒河唔會變成撈麵既最大竅門

不過家用爐頭始終有限制,用埋傳熱快既生鐵鑊都無出面咁有鑊氣

High heat on. Fry the beef until you can smell its fragrance. Then take it out.
Can you see the smoke? It is the key to create 「wok hei」

As we switch to highest heat for the whole time and make the wok very hot before we add an ingredient, the water in the ingredients evaporate rapidly and hence create the crispiness of the dish. This is a very important point to note to prevent the Stirred Fried Rice Noodles with Beef from being a dish of 「lo mein」 (stirred noddles).

A household stove has its limitation. Even with this wrought iron wok which has excellent heat conduction capability, the 「wok hei」 is not as strong as you can have at a tea restaurant.

然後落河炒,煎到佢有香味出
要留意落河炒之前個鑊要有足夠既油,同埋一樣要猛火燒到熱一熱,否則唔香口之餘仲好易痴底
Then we add the rice noodles to make it aromatic
Make sure there is enough oil in the wok and the wok is nicely heated before adding rice noodles otherwise the noodles won’t be fragrant and worse still, they will stick on the wok
