Tomato Beef Chow Mein
2 Styrofoam cups of the pre-packaged instant ramen noodles
1 pound steak (you choose but I like a New York for this)
1 tablespoon peanut oil
4 ripe, medium sized tomatoes, cut into 8 wedges each
2 tablespoons black bean sauce, (found in the Asian aisle of most supermarkets)
1 tablespoon water
Cook noodles according to package directions. For the styrofoam type I just fill with water and microwave 2 minutes, then drain well. For the plastic bag kind I boil them without the seasoning packet then drain well. Slice steak into very thin slices. Preheat a pan or wok on stovetop and heat really well over medium heat, then add oil (use cast iron or wok, non-stick doesn't get hot enough) When the oil is smoking, and not until-- add beef and tomato and stir fry for a couple minutes until beef changes color and is cooked through. In a small bowl mix black bean sauce with water. Set aside.
Add drained noodles and black bean sauce to the beef and tomato and stir the whole business until heated through.
A boyhood favorite.
