Kampar Beef Brisket Noodles ( 金寶牛腩麺)

I love to eat beef.   Previously I very often used to take beef noodles for breakfast and would go for one particular beef noodle stall here in JB town but eversince that owner decided to close down his famous noodle shop, I can't find any good beef noodle here anymore.  One day I found out that there's another similar beef noodles stall in Kluang and it was run by that beef noodle's siblings.   And so, since I love their version of beef noodle, I go all the way to Kluang to have one bowl of beef noodle for breakfast and drive back home!

When you love to eat one particular food, you wouldn't mind to drive all the way there no matter how far it is, right?

While I loves to eat beef noodle, the funny thing is I hardly buy beef from the market and cook at home.  But now it has changed my view now eversince Wendy's and Alan  posted their Beef Brisket Noodle.  I remember I ate this Onn Kee's Beef Brisket Noodles since I am young (my dad's shop is just less than a 2 minute walk to the stall). 

(Sigh).....don't know why this MFF Perak month only come till now or else I can have and cook this long long time ago.....  hehehehe.....

Kampar Beef Brisket Noodles
Recipe copy from  Alan of Travelling-Foodies

Original recipe by WendyinKK of Table for 2....or more
600g beef brisket, tendons & tripe (stomach)
300g  daikon (choose the long slender type, fat ones lack in flavour), peel and cut into chunks
2 star anise
2 inches cinnamon stick
1 small piece of dried tangerine peel
10 pcs of white peppercorn, cracked
20g rock sugar, adjust to taste
Salt to taste
Spring onion, chopped

1. Bring 2.5 litres water to boil.
2. Put whole piece of brisket,  tendon and all the spices into the boiling water.
3. Add salt and seasonings with daikon after 3 hours and let it simmer for another hour or two (or until it is tender)
4. Fish out the brisket chunks and let it cool down. Slice it and put it back into the pot.
5. Serve the beef brisket soup with a sprinkling of spring onions.

Dry Tossed Noodles
Loosen single portion fresh egg noodles/fresh wantan noodles. Put the noodles in a noodle strainer. Cook in boiling water for 15 seconds. Rinse it under running tap water. Blanch it again for another 15-30 seconds depending on the thickness of noodles. Put noodles in a plate. Top with 1 Tbsp of renderings, some dark caramel sauce (or dark soy sauce), light soy sauce according to taste. Toss the noodles. Garnish with some blanched baby bok choy or mustard green.

Express Cha Siu renderings
100g of very fat pork belly (those that you won’t want to eat it as it is)
1 heaped Tbsp of sugar
1 Tbsp of light soy sauce

Slice the fat pork belly thinly. Put in into the wok with 1 Tbsp of oil and slowly fry until it is very slightly golden. Add in sugar and light soy sauce and cook the belly until it turns dry and dark. Discard the belly bits and retain the renderings.

As I still have some beef brisket left over, I make noodle soup instead of dried noodle the next morning for breakfast.
