Boyfriend in the kitchen: Beef and mushroom noodles

asian beef mushroom noodle stirfry nzmuseI’m embarrassed to admit it, but there’s nothing shameful about admitting the truth. RIGHT?

T outcooks me in every possible way. He even makes better Chinese food than I do.

All I can really say is: Noodles. Mushrooms. Beef strips. Garlic. Spring onions. Coriander. And some kind of sauce (play around with soy/oyster sauce/fish sauce/vinegar/cornflour?).

Sorry to those of you who like detailed recipes, but we’re both pretty fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants types, especially T. I don’t understand how he can just conjure up meals out of nowhere. Just like I don’t understand people who can bust out amazing musical solos off the cuff. Maybe it’s a skill that can be learned, but I think I’ll leave it up to him.

Also, what am I gonna call this series once we’re married? Husband in the kitchen just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Also, I have lingering linguistic issues with the terms ‘husband’ and ‘wife’, so it may take me a while to adjust to them. Then again, I imagine we won’t be doing much impressive cooking on the road, so there’s a while to figure it out.

    Just showed the picture to BF, and based on his expression, we`ll probably be cooking this next week! 🙂

    My Italian husband often outcooks me in Chinese food. I had to teach him the trick of mixing oil and water but he’s gotten really good!

    Those noodles look NICE. Just the right thickness. I have recently gotten into Chinese food (never before now) and Sunday night my better half made the best Chinese style green beans. No recipe, just spice and spicy and garlic, yum.

    That’s BF. 🙂 He cooks really well too, but on a structured recipe.

    I cook better without a recipe.
