Hokkien Mee with Wagyu
Cooking for Love
De-shell and devein prawns and set aside. Loosely chop up Chinese cabbage and set aside
Blanch thick egg noodles, strain and set aside.
Heat cooking oil in a wok over medium heat and lightly fry prawns. Add in fish cakes, garlic and salt and continue to stir fry until ingredients are well combined
Add strained noodles to the wok and continue to toss, then season with chicken stock, oyster sauce and Chinese thick soy sauce for color. After ingredients are mixed well, add in chopped cabbage and continue to fry until the mixture reduces. It is best to turn the heat off at this point to avoid burning
Season noodles with sugar, white pepper, corn-starch, add water until noodles are slightly thickened. Optional: turn heat back on and fry for another 2-3 minutes over medium heat to get the consistency that you want
Meanwhile, season the wagyu sirloin generously with salt, and pan sear in a little oil for 2-3 minutes on one side over medium heat.
Turn the sirloin over and add butter and thyme to the pan, and continue to cook while pouring melted butter mixture over sirloin continuously
Using tongs, make sure that the sirloin is well cooked on both sides. Transfer the sirloin onto a chopping block and slice into quarter-inch strips and serve on top of Hokkien Mee
