*Chow Fun (rice noodles), black bean with garlic sauce and oyster sauce can be purchased in most Asian markets.
*This recipe was developed for the Gourmet d'Expert® Electric Skillet (EP-RAC50). Adjustments may be necessary when using other models.
Cut the flank steak lengthwise into 1/2-inch strips, and then into 1/4-inch slices against the grain. Combine beef with marinade and set aside for 15 minutes.
Cut the noodles into 1/2-inch wide strips if not cut. Quickly rinse under water to separate the noodles.
Turn the control lever of the Gourmet d’Expert® Electric Skillet to HIGH, and heat 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil. Add the noodles and cook until they are lightly browned, tossing gently. Remove and set aside.
With the control lever at HIGH, add 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil and cook the beef for 2-3 minutes. Do not stir until one side is browned. Add the peppers and cook for an additional 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the oyster sauce and black bean with garlic sauce.
Return the noodles to the pan and toss until thoroughly heated and mixed. Serve while hot. Finish with a few drops of sesame oil. Serve while hot.
