In any Chinese style wedding banquet, Braised E-Fu Noodles is always on the menu. People don’t really anticipate this dish during a banquet but since Covid, we haven’t had wedding banquet nor this dish for so long. Now we actually miss Braised E-Fu Noodles.
This is actually easy to make. Let’s do it!
乾燒伊麵 Braised E-Fu Noodles
Braised E-Fu Noodles is the perfect match of aromas between E-Fu noodles, straw mushrooms, chives and the sauce
Ingredients are simple. E-fu noodles (we used 3 small pieces), around 10 straw mushrooms and a bunch of chieves
First wash the straw mushrooms and chives. Chop them into shapes as shown
Boil the noodles briefly. Once it gets soften a bit we can take them out and put into a colander to drain the water
Stir fry the straw mushrooms on medium heat
When it becomes softer, add a bit of Shaoxine wine to neutralize the grassy flavour
Mix the ingredient by tossing the wok. The Lowenthal Avocado Ceramic Non-Stick Wok we used is just 0.78kg, the lightest non-stick wok we have ever used. Recommended
Wok tossing is healing
Add 250ml of water
Add the sauce made of 2 tbsp of oyster sauce, 2 tsp of light soy sauce and dark soy sauce and half a tsp of sugar.
As the portion of noodles for everyone is different so the portion of sauce should be adjusted according to the actual flavour of it. Try to use oyster sauce to give it more flavour
When it comes to boil, add all the E-fu noodles
Stir the noodles until the sauce is well absorbed. Then add chives, mix it evenly. Done!
(Chives should be added in the last minute as it tastes better if the chives are just medium well)
The wok we are using is called Lowenthal Avocado Ceramic Non-stick Wok 28cm. Its best benefits are its superior non-stickiness and its natural composition of ceramic coating which brings you away from the health-risky PTFE coated woks most commonly seen in the market. The wok is now available on our online shop. With a few simple clicks, you can start to enjoy the carefree journey of ceramic non-stick wok cooking!
