Delicious lamb and vegetables rice noodles

I have to admit that I’m not very good in cooking lamb. So far I only have one dish on my recipe section and that isĀ  Spiced Lamb Stew which my family loves very much. After I bought a packet of lamb, I was quite stressed up not knowing what to do with it. Cooking Spiced Lamb Stew again? Probably not. I thought it’s time to learn a new dish. Well, a tired mind never work well. Nothing came out. In the end I just marinated it with salt, chicken stock granules and pepper and pan fry it the next day. Wow….it actually turned out very delicious. It is great as a topping for rice noodles. That’s what I did. Here’s my recipe here to share. It’s enough for 4 or 5 persons.

Ingredients A (lamb)
4 pieces lamb (about 700g)
1/2T salt
1/2T chicken stock granules
1/2T pepper powder

Marinade the lamb pieces

Pan-fry it the next day. Slice the amount you want for the noodles.

Ingredients B (rice noodles)
1 packet of rice noodles
fried shallot oil
coriander leaves
soya sauce
chili sauce (optional)
oyster sauce

Rice noodles

Boil the rice noodles in a pot of boiling water until cooked. Do not over cook. Dish it up and run through with cold water to remove the starch. Heat up the fried shallot oil and add in the rice noodles. Add in the rest of the seasoning in Ingredients B according to your taste. Fry until it is dry and fragrant. Add in the coriander leaves. Mix well and dish up into individual plates. Top it with lamb slices and some vegetables of your choice.

Baby corn and green beans

I cooked some green beans and baby corn to go with it. Everyone of us enjoyed this simple, yet very delicious meal very much. I had mine while watching TV. This is a lovely one dish meal.

Great one dish meal. The rice sticks that you use is it what we call ‘bihun’, from rice? Or is it like those flat noodles, that’s why you need to let it run under cold water to remove the starch?

That dish really looks good. I love lamb most especially lamb chops but theyr’e too warming. It’s very hot today but I have a good appetite whatever kind of weather I am in for as long as it’s not hotter than right now. Rice noodles are always a must to buy.

WOW! You’re so creative. I would like to try on my family day.

How nice to have ‘gan lao ho fun’ with stew lamb! I wish my family eat red meat so that I can give it a try. Already mouthwatering lol!

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Cheah - No, it’s not mihoon. It’s smaller kway tiao. It’s still a little starchy. Maybe it would help if I use more water to boil. But I would still run it under cold water to prevent further cooking and also to remove the starch so that it tastes nicer.

@Divina - I try to use the lamb as topping for the noodles so that everyone doesn’t get to eat too much meat. Too much meat is not too good for health. Agree with you that rice noodles is a must to have at home. It’s so convenient & so delicious when fried.

@anncoo - Thanks for your compliment. My family really loves this dish. Hope your family loves it too.

@Kristy - Thanks for translating into local term:) It’s something new for us. I’m glad my family really loves it. I think you have to come here and I’ll cook for you…lots :))

I like to stir fry rice noodles! Not have lamb for a while so this dish is tempting me to have some lamb this weekend!

sometimes the simplest thing comes out best! well done!

foodlovee  on November 17th, 2009

I love lamb,rice noodles looks more like kway teow.Anyway still love bee hoon and kway teow.This looks beautiful combination.

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Penny - I love fried rice too. Quite a while since the last time I cooked. Maybe I should have that for the weekend. This lamb is very simple to cook and can be used in many dishes.

@3hungrytummies - Agree with you that sometimes the simplest thing comes out best. I love my cooking to be simple and easy, yet delicious.

@foodlovee - Thanks for comment. I would call this rice noodles small kway teow. I love bee hoon too.

My husband love lamb (so do I) but I often prepare it with another starch such as rice or potatoes. Noodles are such a great idea!

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Tangled Noodle - My family likes meat with rice. But noodles is a good option for some varieties.

Mathea  on November 17th, 2009

Lamb with noodles is a perfect cool-weather dish! Yum!

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on November 17th, 2009

Yum! The lamb sounds so good with rice noodles, a wonderful meal!

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Mathea - I have to agree with you. It’s a very warming dish for cold weather. My mom advised me to eat more lamb for stronger health. Shemust be right.

@Natasha - Thanks for comment. It is a wonderful one-dish meal that my family enjoyed.

Drick  on November 17th, 2009

the lamb looks so tender and with the vegetables sounds so really good - would love to have it right now and the temp is dropping today….

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Drick - Thanks for compliment. I like lamb. I think it’s not too difficult to cook after my second recipe. It is very tender. I have no idea about the different cuts of meat. Looks like this one worked well.

Danielle  on November 17th, 2009

Sometimes the simplest approaches are the best, aren’t they? Good for you for trying new things!

joylicious  on November 17th, 2009

MM i just made lamb this weekend. I really love the gameminess of lamb meat, correct me if I’m wrong but did you use fresh baby corn? I really like this recipe it feels so hearty and I am a huge fan of rice noodles!

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Danielle - Actually cooking is very fun. When my brain space runs out, simplicity is the answer and amazingly it works wonders.

@Joylicious - I have come to like the taste of lamb more. It’s very unique. Maybe the cold weather makes this meat more welcoming. Yes, I use fresh baby corn and green beans. We love the crunchiness…just a quick stir fry would do and very light seasoning of some sea salt.

joylicious  on November 17th, 2009

I have NEVER had fresh baby corn!! we only have canned here :( I am so envious I bet they taste amazing!!!

Mary  on November 17th, 2009

@Joylicious - Oh no, so sorry to hear that. I wish I can send you some. They taste very good…sweet and crunchy. Try to hunt for it. Canned ones are far too different. I have to be thankful that we can easily get from the supermarkets here.

Ellie  on November 17th, 2009

Lamb with rice noodle. Interesting and I am sure it taste really good!

Light Delight with TouTou  on November 17th, 2009

I never dare to prepare lamb myself….always feel I can not get rid of that “smell”. thanks for the marinade recipe - I could now give it a try, finally!

Mary  on November 18th, 2009

@Ellie - It’s a dish that my family really loves. Hope you try out soon. You can use other meat too.

@Light Delight with Tou Tou - Oh…I hope you will like this one then. I think the smell of lamb meat is still there. You can add some herbs or spices to the seasoning. That may help to minimise the smell.
