4 people


  • 250g Cole Beef Porterhouse steak, fat removed and sliced into strips
  • 2 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Black Bean Garlic Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Pure Sesame Oil
  • 200g of glass noodles
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 brown onion, finely diced
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced into strips
  • 2 eggs (beaten)
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 2 tbsp Lee Kum Kee Salt Reduced Soy Sauce
  • 1 tbsp of sesame seeds
  • Salt
  • Cracked Black pepper


  • Mix the soy, pepper and sesame oil together in a mixing bowl. Add the steak in and marinade for 5 – 10 mins. Once it’s marinated, remove the beef and slice into thin strips.
  • Whilst the steak is marinating, cook the glass noodles in a pot of boiling water. This should take approximately 3-4 mins until the noodles are translucent.
  • Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a wok. Add in the eggs and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook through. Flip over and cook like you would an omelette. Remove from wok and place on the chopping board.
  • Using the same wok, heat 1 tbsp of oil. Add in the steak and cook for 2 mins. Remove and set aside.
  • Again using the same wok, add in 2 tbsp of oil. Add in the minced garlic and diced onions and
  • continue to saute. Next add in the capsicum and carrots and cook for 3 mins or until tender.
  • Now, add in the mushrooms and cooked noodles and pour in the soy sauce. Then, add in the
  • spinach until it wilts and drizzle with some sesame oil.
  • Return the cooked beef to the wok and heat through for a minute or so.
  • Turn the heat off. Roll the omelette up and slice into thin long strips.
  • To serve, place the jap chae onto a serving dish, top with the omelette and sprinkle over some sesame seeds.
