CSA Cooking Show: Beef Chow Fun

Beef Chow Fun is a fundamental Cantonese stir-fry dish with tender and flavorful slices of beef, mustardy choy sum, and thick noodles that make it a simple weekday dish for the family. 

We use our homemade teriyaki sauce to pack all of the flavor into this one pan meal. Use the veggies you have in season or on hand to make this a colorful and nutritious dish that will warm you from the inside out. Feel free to substitute the beef for pork or another protein such as tofu and as always, get creative with your vegetables. We’ve included a short list of additional favorites that could add extra fun to this savory noodle stir-fry.
