I'm a creative cook and I like to try out foreign cuisine. For the first time, I bought myself a Korean cookbook. I had never eaten Korean food before, but it sure looked very appealing to me. Some ingredients I already had in my pantry, because every now and then I look to cook Thai food. While shopping around Aalst, I ran into a small Asian supermarket. Great! Just what I was looking for! I got the final ingredients for my new recipes and I rushed home to prepare my first Korean dish.
I like the freshness and the tang of Asian food. Plenty of crispy vegetables, lovely spices and healthy components make excellent dishes. One of my favorites was a beef stock filled with meaty oyster mushrooms and bean sprouts. Let me share the recipe with you! My guest the other night was pretty excited about this stir-fry, so I'll make it again!
What do we need:
- 500 ml of beef stock
- 2 tablespoons of light soy sauce
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 4 oyster mushrooms, cut down in strips
- toasted sesame oil
- 1/2 zucchini, shredded
- 1/2 broccoli, cut up
- 100 grams of Asian noodles or a package of bean sprouts (depends on how many carbs you want to eat)
- 3 spring onions, chopped diagonally
- 1 red chilli, chopped finely
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- salt and pepper
- toasted sesame seeds
what do we do:
- Add the soy sauce to the stock and set the pan aside.
- Make an omelette out of the eggs and cook it on both sides. Don't forget to season with salt and pepper. Roll up the omelette and slice it.
- Bake the strips of oyster mushroom in a small amount of oil. Sprinkle some sesame oil over the mushrooms and set them aside.
- Stir-fry the zucchini and set them aside.
- Stir-fry the broccoli and set it aside.
- Cook the noodles and drain them.
- Heat the stock and add the bean sprouts, if you're having those instead of the noodles. Season the stock with garlic and chilli.
- Divide the noodles (or the bean sprouts) over 2 bowls. Top with the mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli and omelette.
- Pour the stock over the veggies and top with spring onions and toasted sesame seeds.
