Recipe by thecharlottemei


  • LG Wholegrain Noodles/ LG Wholegrain Mee Tai Bak

  • LG Taukwa

  • Oil

  • Onion

  • Ginger

  • Coriander stalks

  • Five Spice Powder

  • Chilli Bean Paste (Dou Ban Jiang)

  • Cinnamon Stick

  • Star Anise

  • Tomato Paste

  • Diced Tomatoes

  • Half Canned of Straw Mushrooms

  • Chicken Broth

  • Shabu Shabu Beef

  • A Touch of Sugar


  1. Drain the taukwa and lightly pat dry. Slice the taukwa across width-wise.

  2. Heat oil in pot.

  3. Add onions, ginger, coriander stalks and stir-fry until fragrant.

  4. Add five spice powder and chilli bean paste and continue to stir-fry.

  5. Add cinnamon stick and star anise to further enhance the flavour.

  6. Add tomato paste and diced tomatoes, so this is going to form the bulk of broth and simmer on low heat for a while.

  7. Add half a can of straw mushrooms and LG Taukwa—it's high in lean protein and very nutritious.

  8. Then pour in the chicken broth, and simmer for a couple of minutes.

  9. Add the shabu shabu beef—as it is thinly sliced, it separates out nicely and looks beautiful in this dish.

  10. Add a touch of sugar to balance out the flavour and turn off the heat.

  11. Blanch the LG Wholegrain Noodles for 10-20 seconds, after that put in a bowl.

  12. Pour the sauce into the bowl and mix it with the noodles.

  13. Start plating and enjoy!
