enough wide rice noodles for three peopleprepared as described above
Marinate the beef
Thinly slice the beef (less than 1/4 inch thick is ideal) then cut into strips about half an inch wide. Place in a bowl.
Stir together the soy sauce, rice wine and baking soda. Pour over the beef. Mix well. Cover the bowl and marinate in the fridge for at least an hour.
Make the sauce
Pour the broth into a small sauce pan. Add the star anise, bay leaf, ginger, garlic, peppercorns, soy sauce and sugar. Bring to the boil, cover, lower the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Scoop out all the spices that you had thrown in earlier and discard.
Pour in the starch solution. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in the hoisin sauce, oyster sauce and sesame seed oil. Taste. Add salt, if needed (not more soy sauce because you don’t want the sauce to turn super dark). Set aside.
Stir fry the dish
Heat the cooking oil in a wok or frying pan. Over extremely high heat, add the beef slices and cook until the beef starts to acquire some texture.
Add the onion slices to the beef. Season with salt and pepper. Stir fry for half a minute.
Throw in the kailan. Continue stir frying just until the greens start to wilt.
Add the drained noodles to the beef. Pour in the sauce. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, just until the noodles are cooked through.
