Beef Chow Fun is a classic Cantonese style dish that you can get at almost every Chinese restaurant. Its a little bit difficult to make at home because a good Beef Chow Fun needs a good wok to make. A chef’s wok makes all of their dishes taste better due to the right distribution of heat to the food. I made this dish at home with a wok and it tasted a lot better than another time I used with a regular frying pan.
Beef Chow Fun has very little ingredients and is pretty easy to make. It’s also a good idea to make it at home so you know how much oil you are adding. Usually if you order at restaurants, they use a lot of oil which makes it very greasy and unhealthy.
