Beef Chow Fun is one of my most favorite dish. It’s a highly popular Chinese dish that also has a comparable Thai version call Pad See Ew, which is just as popular.

This is a flat noodle dish that relies on careful handling of the beef and vegetables to ensure a desirable result. When making following this recipe, you’ll also learn my secret sauce recipe that further enhances the flavor of this dish.

I hope that you’re just as excited as I am to get started on this one.

Shaking Beef - Sauce


1. In a big bowl, mix the sliced beef with 1 tbsp (15 ml) of the special sauce, 1/2 tsp (1 g) of garlic powder, and a pinch of pepper. You can substitute the garlic powder with 1 clove of garlic if desired.

1. Prepare a big pan with oil and heat to 375 F (190 C).

2. Fry beef for 25-30 seconds. Set aside in a plate when done.

3. In a different pan, saute a small portion of onion until light brown and add 1/3 pack of the rice noodle. Do not stir the noodle too much. It’ll break the noodles. Use a spatula to flip them from time to time.
NOTE: It’s key not to do an entire batch at once. We must divide them into small portions to prevent a watery result.

4. Once the noodle is lightly brown, add the marinated beef with 1 tbsp (15 ml) of the special sauce and shake the pan up quickly to mix them.

5. Now add the Gai Lan and bean sprouts and mix them up with another 1 tbsp (15 ml) of special sauce.

6. After a few seconds, add green onions, and mix for another few seconds.

7. That’s it. Now you can plate it and repeat the steps above for each batch.
