You’re having a small tea party and your guests include little ones which might not take too kindly to the spicy currypuffs or savoury popiah. Whip up this simple dish in 3 easy steps and you’ve got them hooked. It’s simple and can be enjoyed by adults too.
Fried Macaroni with Minced Beef Sauce
What you need:
2 fresh button mushrooms, sliced
100g minced beef
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 tsp chopped ginger
1 tomato diced
2 tbsp oil
½ tsp sesame oil
¼ tsp pepper
½ tsp sugar
½ tsp salt
½ tsp chicken stock granules
4-5 tbsp tomato sauce
150ml fresh chicken stock
Chopped spring onion
What to do:
Bring water to a boil in pot and cook macaroni until al-dente. Drain and set aside.
Heat oil in wok and fry garlic and ginger until fragrant. Add minced beef and stir-fry until fragrant. Add mushrooms and seasoning. Bring to a boil then add macaroni and tomato.
Toss and fry until well combined and sauce is reduced. Dish out and sprinkle some chopped spring onions on top.
- Don’t fry the pasta until it is very dry. Once there is no more liquid and pasta is nicely coated with all seasonings then it’s time to dish out.
- The recipe doesn't make a lot especially if you're having a party. Do adjust as required.
- I added chopped carrots into the dish as I didn't have button mushrooms at hand. You may choose to add something else.
This is a simple dish to have at your tea parties. It’s best cooked right before serving. I got this recipe from Amy Beh’s column from The Star newspaper. The source of many awesome recipes I’ve tried.
Do try it and let me know if it turns out well!
