Number 42


  • Number 1
  • Number 6
  • Number 33
  • Number 42


  • Number 6:  Rump steak, soy sauce, sugar, cornflour, onions, peanut oil, mushrooms, bamboo shoots, bean sprouts, egg noodles, beef stock (thin gravy), sesame oil.
  •  Number 33: Cooked rice, peanut oil, sesame oil, soy sauce.
  •  Number 42: Pineappples, thick pancake batter, vegetable oil, syrup.

  • Preparation

  • Number 6: Slice the steak into thin strips.  Marinade in a little soy sauce, cornflour and sugar for 3 minutes.  Stir fry the beef in a little peanut oil.  When the beef is cooked, add the mushrooms, bamboo shoots and bean sprouts and fry a little longer.  (Adding a little stock if things begin to dry out or burn.)  Boil the noodles in water until soft and add to the wok.  Fry for a few seconds and drizzle on a little sesame oil and some more soy sauce.
  • Number 33: Fry some cooked rice in a little peanut oil, drizzle on a little sesame oil (not too much, this is 1976 and that stuff costs the earth), add a dash of soy sauce (again not too much, those English people don't like too much flavour in their food).
  • Number 42: Using some of the pancake batter from yesterday that you cleverly stored in a jar in the fridge (or making some more) - thicken it with a little extra cornflour then dip the pineapple rings in the batter and deep fry until Golden Dragon brown.   Serve swimming in a thin, watery, sugar syrup.
