Steamed noodles with beef and celery

Steaming allows the noodles to absorb the sauce.

Steamed beef noodles


  • 500 g beef, cut into thin slices
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 3 slices ginger, sliced
  • 3 star anise
  • 5 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 5 celery sticks, sliced
  • 1 carrot, sliced
  • fresh noodles or pasta


  • 2 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp white wine
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


Marinade beef in sauce for 30 min.

Quick boil (to remove powder) and then steam noodles for 20 min.

Stir fry beef with soy sauce, set aside.

Stir fry ginger, garlic, onion, anise, chili for ~30s. Add celery, carrot, soy sauce and stir fry for 5min.

Add beef and water and mix for 2 more mins (no need to be completely ready).

Add in noodles and mix well.

Transfer everything back to steamer and steam for further 15 min. You will need a cloth in the bottom to keep the sauce from escaping.
