I love making Asian food that tastes great without using hard-to-find exotic ingredients. So, I developed this recipe with ground beef, bell pepper and pasta. It’s super easy to make!

Beef and bell pepper make a classic duo in Chinese cuisine, but getting beef tender can be a bit tricky. That’s where ground beef comes to the rescue – No more worrying about overcooked meat.

The flavors of beef and pepper blend seamlessly in this sauce, and a touch of soy sauce and rice wine gives it that delicious Asian vibe.

Chinese Pasta ingredients including pasta, beef, bell pepper, garlic, soy sauce and rice wine
Chinese Pasta recipe ingredients
  • Pasta: I prefer using angel hair pasta because it cooks quickly and its thin texture easily absorbs the sauce. However, feel free to use any type of pasta for this recipe.
  • Beef: I use 10% fat ground beef for richer flavor from the released beef fat. If you prefer lean meat, that works too. If it’s frozen, make sure it’s completely thawed to avoid lumps after cooking.
  • Bell Pepper: In some places, it’s known as capsicum. I finely dice them for quicker cooking, ensuring they blend well with the ground beef and stick easily to the pasta.
  • Garlic: I often prepare a bunch of fried garlic in advance. It’s versatile and can enhance the flavor of various dishes. Plus, it’s handy to have on the table so you can sprinkle more to intensify the taste.
  • Soy Sauce: The sauce should be slightly salty since the pasta dilutes the taste. If you’re unsure, begin with two tablespoons of soy sauce and adjust while tasting. If it’s still not salty enough after adding the pasta, you can sprinkle in some salt.
  • Rice Wine: I add rice wine towards the end of the cooking to enhance the flavor. If it cooks with the sauce, the taste diminishes. Alternatively, you can use white wine as a substitute.
How to prepare pasta

Getting both the pasta and sauce just right at the same time can be tricky. In this recipe, you can cook the sauce first, then prepare the pasta and combine them later.

To simplify the cooking process, cook the pasta before making the sauce. Here are three steps to prepare the pasta in advance:

  1. Cook the pasta in water until it’s 80% done.
  2. Drain the pasta and rinse it with cool water to halt the cooking process.
  3. Mix in some oil to prevent sticking.
