Lobster With Yi Noodles/龙虾炒伊面


I’ve been cooking Yi Noodles quite often recently, but never post them because I never remembered exact amount of ingredients I used. Recently lobster is on sale for $7.99 per pound, last week I bought 2 lobster around 2.5-3 pounds, and I used to cook Yi noodles. (Yi noodle is noodles that is already deep fried like instant noodles. ) Very delicious!!!


Lobster 2.5-3 pounds

Yi Noodles 400g

Ginger 35g (thin shred)

Scallion 4-5 whole pieces (thin shred)

Half small yellow onion (thin shred)


Cook yi noodles in a big pot of boiling water for about a minute, use a drainer to take noodles out of water and set aside.

Cut the lobster into small pieces.

Drain the water out, then add 4-5 tbsps corn starch to the lobster and mix well.

Deep fried lobster in hot oil about 4 minutes, make sure only a few pieces at a time, we want to keep the oil temperature high.

After all the lobster are deep fried, set aside.

Leave 2 tbsps oil in the cooking pan, add scallion, ginger and onion to the oil and stir fry for 2 minutes.

Add the lobster and noodles back to the pan and mix with the vegetables, sprinkle 1/3 tsp salt, 1/3 tsp black pepper, 1tsp sesame oil, 2tbsps Chinese cooking wine, 1.5 tbsps vegetarian oyster sauce, 1/2 tsp chicken bouillon and 2 tbsps light soy sauce to the pan and mix everything together.

Pepper Steak/甜椒牛排

I haven’t post anything for September yet. It usually takes me a while to go back to posting after summer time, I just got really lazy lately. So I went to Costco last week and bought some really good steak, and I used them to cook some Chinese dishes.  They are actually quite simple because I don’t want to ruing the steak by using too much spices or sauces. Basically I just add some salt and pepper or only oyster sauce to stir fry the food.

First dish is steak and bell peppers. I only added salt and pepper to taste and quickly stir fried for about 3 minutes. Once the steak’s color turns light brown, I turned off the heat. It is so tender and delicious!!!

I thin slice everything. This one I cooked steak first, then stir fried the vegetable for a few minutes until everything is tender then add the cooked steak alone with oyster sauce. This was just as good as the first dish!


This steak is kind of expensive, but the taste is unbeatable! Life is short I do treat myself nice once in a while.
