This has to be one of my favourite suppers - Oyster Sauce Beef & Tenderstem® Broccoli Chow Mein. I was incredibly busy over Chinese New Year but I still found time to pull together this dish. It’s fresh and modern but still has all the ingredients needed for the perfect CNY dish. The noodles symbolise longevity and the traditional oysters are a symbol of prosperity. With oysters being such a highly prized seafood, the “oyster sauce” makes a great symbolic addition here too. It is a beautifully versatile recipe. For those wanting to cut down on carbs, use courgetti instead of egg noodles. If you are vegan, substitute the beef for some baked firm tofu instead. I’ve added the full recipe here for you to try. Happy wokking!
