Chinese wine beef and mushroom noodles

Stir fried beef and mushroom in chinese wine with udon noodles is so tasty, this rice wine is a bold, tasty compliment to any chinese dish. It smells way more powerful than normal grape wine and its taste is way bolder too, it’s closer to a fortified wine in taste. Without saying you need to be careful not to put too much of it.udonbeefpin

Chinese wine beef and mushroom noodlesYesterday, I went to my favorite asian market because I needed a refill of this, hard to find, vietnamese fish sauce. I can not recommend it enough, the vietnamese one is made with only fish and taste different than the thai fish sauce they sell in most stores. Once in there, I love to pick up something new, so this time, I’ve decided to experiment with this rice wine called Chen nian hua tiao Chiew. Let me say… after my first dish with it, this is going to be pleasant to make tons of delicious recipe with it. I love bold flavors, and this wine is right in my spectrum of bold flavors.

Also couldn’t resist those beautiful bowls they sell in this market. Love this place!

So let’s make this chinese wine stir fried dish!
