Gg’s Dry Beef Hor Fun

My friend Graciana requested for this recipe. So here it is. A simple and very delicious all-in-one-meal stir-fry. I chose to use sirloin here but any preferred cut of meat suitable for stir-frying is fine. The kway teow (flat rice noodle) was purchased at NTUC. It’s pre-packaged and not in the fridge section. Has some cartoon character on it. I think it’s pretty good. Any other kway teow you like it fine too. If it is in the dry form, just make sure to boil and drain it before adding to the pan.  Add as many or little vegetables as you like. If you are adventurous and can be bothered, topping each plate of the piping hot hor fun with an egg yolk to stir through before eating is very yum as well.
