My dad used to work six days a week. He had Mondays off. On those Mondays, we would come home from school and he would prepare us the awesomest after-school snacks ever.
One of my favorites is a good sirloin steak with fried macaroni in a wok. He told us this was after-hours bar food in Vietnam, where he grew up. That’s why I’m labeling this as a Vietnamese recipe rather than Fusion recipe. This is yummy comfort food in a pinch and can be made alone without the steak. But if you have time, it really is better to cook this in the wok after you’ve seared your steak. The macaroni dredges up all the yummy brown bits.
