Braised Beef Over Egg Noodles

Description

Instead, a thickened braised beef sauce is drenched over the egg noodles. It’s vaguely similar to pancit canton but has the comforting beefy goodness and the aromatic flavors of mixed spices that the Chinese came up with: Chu Hou Sauce, star anise, soy sauce, sugar, etc. And this gave a whole new level of delightful noodle-eating experience.
