Prep Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 3 mins

Total Time: 18 mins

Serves: 2


  • 2 tablespoon oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 100 gram beef (any part is okay as long as it is not too fatty), thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 25 gram Chinese mustard green (Indonesian: chaisim), chopped into bite size pieces
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 100 gram bean sprout (Indonesian: taoge)
  • 250 gram fresh kwetiau (*)
  • 1 scallion, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sweet soy sauce (Indonesian: kecap manis)
  • ½ teaspoon sugar


  1. Heat oil in a wok/frying pan on high heat and stir fry garlic for 1 minute or until fragrant and starts to turn golden brown.
  2. Add the beef and salt and stir fry until the color starts to change.
  3. Add the mustard green stir fry for 15-30 seconds.
  4. Push aside the stuff in the wok and pour the beaten egg. Quickly scramble the egg and break off any lump, do this for 15-30 seconds until the egg is no longer runny. Toss lightly so the egg, the beef, and the mustard green are mixed well.
  5. Add the bean sprout and fresh kwetiau and stir fry for another minute.
  6. Add chopped scallion, season with soy sauce, sweet soy sauce, and sugar, mix well.
  7. Remove from heat and serve immediately with a side of acar.


  • (*) A lot of time, fresh kwetiau is sold in the frozen section in the supermarket along with tofu, fresh egg noodles, etc. The fresh kwetiau is usually packed tightly together and to untangle them and make them supple and manageable again, you will need to place them in a mixing bowl and pour enough hot boiling water and let sit for 15-30 minutes until they sort of untangle themselves. Drain before using.
