Stir fried noodles with beef is my staple Friday evening meal. Instead of having regular noodles, I always try to make it a bit more interesting. If you went to boarding school, you can relate to the concept of special noodles. Obviously noodles was a contraband item in boarding school but the naughty little girls we were, we found a way. Armed with our boiling ring, can of sardine or corned beef, we whipped up some questionable concoctions especially on Friday nights. Hence the continuation of this tradition from my teenage years.
With a bit of suya-spiced beef, green beans amongst other spices, you can make your regular noodles more gourmet. For the longest time, I never liked to do too much to my noodles. I always opted for the easier choice. Noodles, its seasoning and maybe a tablespoon of pepper always worked but after my boarding school experience, I decided to make my Friday noodles lit. It’s the weekend, its time to chill so hey why not?
