Minced Beef Noodles

Yesterday was my girlfriend's birthday, and I did a stir-fry noodle dish for her potluck. For many Asians, noodles are considered a symbol of longevity, especially if you've ever seen the lengths of noodles in Asia. I used some fresh yellow noodles found at the Asian market, and made this in her favorite minced beef combo. This was a quick stir-fry with sesame oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, chili oil, cornstarch and some chicken stock in the sauce.

Now she should live for another 150 years, at least!

So sweet of you to make that for your girlfriend's birthday. This dish of yours is more East Meets West, like using the whole baby carrots and uncut long french beans in the dish. LOL! :P
