Veggies (was supposed to put in some broccoli but I forgot)
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tbsp lite soy sauce
2 tbsp dark soy sauce
2 tbsp oyster sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tbsp oil
Given the above ingredients, this was what we did:
- We pre-boiled the egg noodles in some chicken stock left over from an earlier dish. Do not boil till noodles are completely cooked otherwise, they'll soften and become overcooked when you stir fry them.
- Combine the cornstarch, lite and dark soy sauce, oyster sauce and water in a small bowl.
- In a skillet, heat oil and saute garlic. Add the shrimp, carrots, straw mushrooms and broccoli. Saute until heated.
- Add the cornstarch & sauce mixture. Stir constantly until sauce thickens. Add a little broth as necessary.
- Add the noodles and mix.
We're still skeptical about the noodles. I believe that we shouldn't have pre-boiled it but should've just soaked it in water and cooked it during the stir fry process. Any thoughts on this?
Hubby thought the noodles came out bland and said that it could do with a dash of salt. I thought it was just right.
btw, when hubby was mixing the sauce (soy sauce, cornstarch, etc), I saw him tasting it... ganon pala magluto, dapat tinitikman ? *grin* I always just go by the color & texture, kaya yun, hit or miss :D
