Beef Kway Teow with Bell Peppers & Sugar Snap Peas

Feeling a little brain dead today. 😐 And it’s only Tuesday, geez. But I’m looking forward to the coming public holiday as I’ve planned to go on a hike which I haven’t done for ages. Supposed to be my homework in therapy but I’ve put it off for too long. Anyway, let’s keep it simple today. I just want to share this Beef Kway Teow Recipe that I’ve whipped up for lunch a while ago.

Beef Kway Teow with Bell Peppers & Sugar Snap Peas

Beef Kway Teow or Beef Hor Fun?

Entirely up to you. You can swap the kway teow (flat rice noodles) with hor fun which are also rice noodles but are thicker and wider. If you prefer a wet version to a dry one, try adding some chicken broth while adjusting the amount of seasonings. It depends on how salty or flavoursome the broth is. Then thicken it up with some corn starch solution to make it into a sauce.

And of course, everything else is also substitutable. Non-beef eaters may want to opt for pork, chicken or seafood. Vegetables wise, you can go for chye sim (or choy sum), broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, mushrooms etc.

Really simple meal to whip up. Time saving as well. So this really makes an ideal weekday dinner. Enjoy the recipe! 🙂
