Glass Noodle Stirfry

OH HEY HAPPY NEW YEARS! First of all, J and I hope that you’re all having a wonderful holiday season, and that you are surrounded by the people you love. Thank you for following us on our journey so far, and we are so excited for 2016!

NOW TO THE FOOD. Glass. Noodle. Stirfry. Ohmygoshthisissodelicious. It is so flavourful and satisfying that I could hardly believe it while I was eating it. Prepare your tastebuds. This is a super easy recipe, but was so unbelievably good that I honestly don’t think the leftovers will last past tonight.

So I managed to lose some of the pictures for this post, but the first thing you’re going to want to do is prep your veggies. Julienne 1/2 a medium red onion, 1/2 a red bell pepper, and shred 1 medium carrot. Saute the vegetables in a frying pan with some olive oil until soft. Add 2 cups of shredded beef (J wrote a fantastic pulled pork post that you can use to make shredded beef as well. That being said, pork would also be delicious!) and combine in the pan. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder – you could also mince garlic into the pan – and chilli flakes to taste.

Glass noodles are these peculiar but delicious noodles. They are made from sweet potato starch and have a chewier consistency than regular wheat noodles do. They are super translucent, hence “glass”. I find them super delicious. You can pick them up at your closest Asian supermarket. Amazon also carries them! I cooked half of the pack as per the instructions on the packaging. Drain the noodles and set them aside into a bowl. These noodles are sticky, so use 1-2 tbsp sesame oil to keep them from getting clumpy. Stir until combined.

And just like that, the best part of the whole thing has arrived! Plate and serve hot! Devour all portions. Devour is the correct word, believe me.
