Chilli Bean Beef Shin Pasta By Ching He Huang

Serves 2-3

This Chilli Bean Beef Shin Pasta by Ching He Huang is inspired by the spicy pork noodles at Chang Jiao Tang in Shanghai.

This is a delicious Chinese-Italian Fusion pasta dish with tonnes of Umami. The sweetness of the oyster sauce and the rich beany salty notes of the light soy sauce and dark soy sauce really makes this dish a winner.

This recipe was made in collaboration with Ching He Huang.

2 Tbsp rapeseed oil
1 large white onion, peeled and finely diced
