I chose this recipe from the CL Annual Recipes 2007 to make with my mom who is teaching me to cook. We make an "American" version of Beef and Noodles and thought this would be a fun flavor twist. We're from a small town so we had to substitute regular Bok Choy (sliced) for the baby version in the recipe and Grandma's egg noodles for the Chinese egg noodles. It worked out fine however. Also couldn't find Star Anise so proceeded without it. Otherwise followed recipe to the letter and it was delicious and easy with a nice, soft Asian palette of flavors.
Chinese-Style Stove-Top Pot Roast with Noodles
Ginger, soy sauce, star anise, and Chinese five-spice powder infuse this dish with Asian flavor. If you can't find fresh Chinese egg noodles, substitute rice noodles or even linguine.
