Mee Siam Goreng

{{totalReview}}
All over Asia there are multiple versions of an easy-to-make vermicelli noodle dish that is popular for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Mee Siam Goreng is one of them, but this fiery and full-bodied dish combines chilies, garlic, tofu and tomato puree with a secret ingredient - tauco! Tauco is a fermented soybean product that offers an invigorating flavor. Once you add just the right amount of vermicelli noodles to soak in all the flavors, you’ll have yourself a scrumptious meal. Season with chili and eggs for color and more flavor right before you serve.

Directions

  1. Make The Paste

    • Blend onions, garlic, dried chili, and dried shrimp into a paste.


  2. Start Cooking

    • On medium heat, sauté the paste for about 10 minutes while stirring to keep it from burning. 

    • Add tauco paste and stir well, then add in tomato puree and sugar and continue until the oil splits, about 5 minutes.

    • Add prawns and fish cakes. Stir to mix. Once the prawns turn a light pink it means that it is half- cooked, then add in the pre-soaked vermicelli noodles, fried bean curd, chives, and salt. Stir gently to incorporate.

    • While blending, add a little water if you need help to process. Adjust the amount of salt according to your preference. Be gentle when stirring the vermicelli noodles to not break them.
    Start Cooking
