Recorded January 28, 2011. Prepared several times beforehand.
2 c baby bok choy, rinsed, dried, and angle cut
2 c napa, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 c broccoli crowns, sliced, blanched, and refreshed
1 medium yellow onion, blossom cut
2 c bean sprouts
1 c sliced mushrooms
1 T minced garlic
1 can bamboo shoots, strips, rinsed well, and drained
1/4 c canola oil, divided
14 oz pkg Hong Kong-style dry egg noodles
3/4 lb prepared breaded fish cake squares (5 or 6 cakes)
2 T soy sauce
1 T dark sesame oil
1/2 T fish sauce
2 T oyster sauce
about 1 c chicken stock
1/4 c julienned green onions (optional)
Fish Cake
Heat 1 T of oil sizzling hot in a large wok. Add the fish cakes, and crisp, with frequent turning, about 1 minute, taking care not to burn. Remove to a plate to cool. Cut into slices.
Noodles
Add the noodles to salted boiling water (about 3 qts) in a large sauce pan. Boil gently for 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. When just tender, drain in a colander, and cool with cold water. Drain well and mix in 2 T oil and 1 T soy sauce. Add 2 T oil to the wok, and heat to smoking. Add noodles, fry on one side a few minutes. When golden, turn. Continue until the batch of noodles is nicely browned and crisped. Set aside in a large bowl and cover to keep warm.
Vegetables in Sauce
Stir fry the bok choy, napa, onions, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, and garlic until crispy tender. Add the seasonings and stock.
Finished Dish
Bring vegetables to a boil, fold in the noodles, and heat through. Serve in a large bowl, arranging the fish cake slices on top. Garnish with the green onions. Serves 6.
