清湯牛肉拉麵 Beef Ramen in a Clear Broth


「暮春三月,江南草長,雜花生樹,群鶯亂飛。」

踏入三月後,我家的草開始長高了,但太濕潤,老公說暫還不能修剪。帶 Josh 去散步,野外的樹木花卉都已有春苗萌芽的跡象。滿天的雀鳥高歌迎春,一切都在告訴我們,寒冬已遠走了。


上週末卻無故刮起一場狂風暴雨,出門遠足的計劃逼著取銷。這幾天都風和日麗,且看明早能否成行。


太陽雖是柔柔的照著,風仍冷。午餐有人說想吃湯麵。



在外國,特別是像我們,離大城市和唐人雜貨店都遠,家裏不時要存有乾貨以應所需。

新鮮麵條沒有,包裝的山西拉麵、米粉等倒有幾包。經驗來說,只要麵、上湯和配料烹煮得好,口味是不遜於城中麵店的。


我愛吃麵,無論中國、日本、越南、韓國等地的形式都愛。煮時更喜歡把各家的方法互相配搭,材料隨心所欲,有清有濃、有淡有辣,看心情而定。

正值春寒料峭之際,來一碗清湯牛肉麵,吃得面燙心暖,你們也有興趣試試嗎?


清湯牛肉
( 2 人份 )


材料:

牛排 2 塊約 400g,里脊 rib eye 或西冷 Sirloin 都可以
乾拉麵 160g
芽菜少許隨意
橄欖油少許
日式照燒醬汁 Teriyaki 3 湯匙
1 3/4 品脫 pint 清湯 ( 做法另述 )
蔥 1 - 2 條切粒
小紅辣椒 1 隻去籽切幼絲
青檸 1 隻
莞茜隨意



做法:
  1. 燒沸一大煲水,先把芽菜放入川燙 20 秒,取出馬上過冷河瀝乾備用。
  2. 把水再燒開,把乾麵條放入,根據包裝指示煮 2 - 3 分鐘或至剛軟,取出過冷河瀝乾備用 。
  3. 煎排鍋 ( 平底或有凹坑都可 )用中火燒至很熱約 1 - 2 分鐘,牛排用鮮磨海鹽、黑椒和橄欖油兩邊塗勻,放進鍋中乾煎,牛排上的橄欖油和本身脂肪已足夠油份。每邊煎 2 - 3 分鐘隨意。取出塗上照燒醬汁,5 分鐘後才切條。
  4. 把清湯煮滾,把麵用大杓子盛進沸湯裏燙一下,即提起分置兩大碗中,把沸湯淋在麵上,用筷子挑鬆麵條,排上牛肉、芽菜、蔥花、辣椒絲和莞茜上桌。青檸另上。
簡易清湯做法:

1.  清水1200 ml,加入白酒4 湯匙, 蔥 2 條,薑數片,蒜頭 2 粒拍扁,白胡椒粉 1 茶匙,五香粉 1 茶匙,煲滾後小火煮 10 分鐘,過篩。

2.  把已過瀘的清湯再煲滾,轉小火,加入蠔油湯匙、鹽茶匙、糖茶匙 ,生抽  2 茶匙 和麻油茶匙;拌勻,試味便成清湯。



有時間的話,可以用豬骨、雞骨和蔬菜熬一大煲上湯,放涼後用容器盛開放進冷藏櫃。要時才拿出解凍,便可以隨時有上湯供應。

  2. Dear Daisy,

    Thank you for being so patient haha! Hope you think your wait is worthwhile :) Oh, yes, please don’t start me on noodles too, I could easily have them 3 times a day!! You’re right, nothing beats an easy but delicious noodle meal, perfect for anytime of the day!

    Yes, Josh is indeed our naughty border collie, he’s nearly 4 now, we had him since he was 11 weeks old, you can find him in this post or some of the others,

  4. Dear Daisy,

    We’ve had a very nice and relaxed weekend, thanks. Yes, I’ve seen all your food related activities, what a lucky girl you’re! You’re going to have to fit all these in when you start working, hope you can manage haha!!

    I thought YOU are going to do the cooking, not Mr Bao LOL, mind you, it’s always good to see a girl wear the trousers at home, keep it up Daisy, so proud of you :D

    I was a terrible mum, wouldn’t let my children have dogs until my daughter’s final year in high school, now I’m being punished with looking after her dog! May be I shouldn’t have changed my mind :(

    1. Dear Catherina,

      Thank you very much, glad you like it. The vegetable dish behind is made up of celery, bamboo shoots & sweet red pepper lightly blanched, then mixed together with garlic chili sauce, vinegar, sugar & sesame oil; decorated with coriander. I often do this with julienne vegetables as a side dish :)

  8. 有別於台灣紅燒牛肉湯頭
    日式照燒醬汁別有一番風味嚕!!~

  9. Dear 小咪,

    很多謝你!是呀這是簡易的清湯做法,適合忙碌的家庭主婦們。
    我喜歡混合中、日、韓、越式的煮麵方法,照燒醬汁在這兒有畫龍點精之效哩 :D

  10. Jane提供了一個很有效率的做法:把牛排輕烤後刷上照燒醬,切條後再置入湯麵中,就能做出一碗好麵。節省了燉牛肉塊的時間,迅速又美味!我也可以試試!

    1. Dear Moon,

      多謝你喜歡。我們大家的生活都那麼繁忙,要家人吃得好吃得飽,又不是每天都有時間,主婦們都要有兩三度板斧的,對不對?吃過、見過甚麼省時快捷的食物就把做法記熟。我從你那兒,也學到了不少好方法呢 :)
