Niu Rou Mian (Beef Noodle) is a food you can buy from restaurants or vendors, but can be easily made at home. It takes some work ahead of time, so be sure to start early.
2 lbs Beef Shank/Short Ribs or Stew Beef
1 Whole Onion
5-6 Cloves of Garlic
2 big pieces of ginger
3-4 stalks of Green Onions
1/2 cup of Soy Sauce (Dark and Regular)
2 cups Beef Broth
5 cups of water
Noodles( I used Barilla whole wheat linguine)
Slice onion, tomatoes and garlic. Saute in a dutch oven in a little bit of olive oil until softened. Add meat. Cook until browned. Add soy sauce, ginger, green onion, beef broth and water. Let simmer for 4-6 hours, adding more water if needed.
Cook noodles according to package directions. Add bok choy during the last minute or two of cooking. Drain. Dish up noodles and bok choy. Scoop beef mixture over noodles.
You will need a fork and a spoon to eat. Enjoy!
