Lean steak is flash-fried then added to a full-flavoured beef stock with oriental vegetables and nests of fine egg noodles in this attractive noodle-bar favourite. Delicious!
For beef, use chicken breast fillets. Replace the stock with chicken stock.
Dried shiitake mushrooms are useful to keep in the storecupboard, but you will need time to soak them before they can be added to a recipe. Soak in water for about 3 minutes, then rinse to remove any grit. Soak in warm water for a further 30 minutes to soften. Cut off the stalks and discard, then continue as for fresh shiitake. (The soaking liquid can be strained and added to the stock.)
