Lovely and beautiful day today. I decided to cook a simple meal for dinner. Rice noodle also known as bee hoon or mee siam is delicious and can be cooked in several ways. For today, I am making the rice noodle with beef soup.
For the soup:
1/2 lb of beef
1 stick of cinnamon
2 pieces star anise
5 pieces cloves
1 tablespoon of crushed coriander
1 big onion (diced)
1 tablespoon of chopped garlic
1 tablespoon of grated ginger
1 tablespoon of dried parsley
lots of water, about 10 cups
2 tablespoons of salt or as taste
Rice noodle. Soak in warm water.
Boil water and all of the ingredients.
Taste the soup and add salt if needed.
Let the beef cooked and all spices are marinated.
Add rice noodle and turn off the stove.
Garnish the rice noodle soup with hot peppers soak in soy sauce.
Dessert today was Brownies.
I am using brownie mix from the box. Follow the instruction on the box and add about 2 cups of apple sauce. I like to add some other ingredient into the cake mix. My favorite is to use apple sauce. The sauce will give more moisture to the cake mix.
Other ingredient that you can add to the cake mix is grated zucchini, peaches, or any other fruits and vegetables.
