I had a hankerin’ for Chinese food the other night.  I really miss our weekly Andy’s delivery.  Chinese food outside of San Francisco just isn’t the same…

So… I decided to do a bit of a noodle stirfry…

First, I marinated the beef in soy sauce, rice wine, chili paste, and lots of garlic.  Then I grilled it  (Yum all on its own…)

I boiled up some thin spaghetti (Chinese noodles not readily available at my local Super Fresh) and stirfried celery, carrots, red bell pepper, onion, broccoli, garlic, and water chestnuts.

I put them off to the side and stirfried the noodles in a bit of oil, browned them a bit, then added the vegetables back in, along with some Mandarin oranges and bean sprouts.  I heated it all through with some fish sauce, rice wine, soy sauce, sesame oil and onto the platter it went.  Beef on top, and dinner was served!

Sides of rice in our new Vietnamese Dragonfly bowls from Cost Plus, and dinner was complete.

Okay – it wasn’t nearly as good as Andy’s, but it worked! 🙂
