【太平面】Tai Ping Mian (Birthday Misua with hard boiled eggs)




Mum used to make a big bowl of Mee Sua soup (Fujianese thin noodle) for my brothers and I on our birthdays. As it was specially prepared for the birthday boy/girl, it became all the more precious and tasty.

It is my birthday today,  mum told me on the phone to make a bowl of this noodle soup for myself since she is not here with me.


1 把 厦门面线

2 只 水煮蛋

1 块鸡肉/猪肉 (切片,加上盐,料酒和一点胡椒面腌20分钟,然后加入一点点粟米粉拌匀)

4-5 朵 香菇 (泡开)

1/2 小勺 姜蒜蓉

1/2 小勺 葱花

1/2 小勺 葱油

1 碗 高汤



盐 或 鱼露 适量

麻油 几滴

1 bunch of Xiamen Mee Sia (Xia Men Thin Noodle)
2 hard boiled eggs
1 piece/ 100 gm of chicken breast/pork loin (Slice thinly and marinate with salt, Chinese cooking wine and a pinch of pepper for about 20 minutes, blend with 1/2 tsp of corn starch before cooking.)
4-5 Dried mushroom (Soaked and slice) I used fresh mushroom
1/2 tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp Chopped spring onion
1/2 tsp Fried Shallot and oil
1 Bowl of Chicken or any kind of stock

Salt or fish sauce to taste

1. 示范一下少量制作葱油的好办法:两个小红葱切片,加入1小勺食油混匀,放到微波炉里转1分钟,拿出拌拌,入微波炉再转1分钟,取出拌拌,最后入微波炉转45秒。简易葱油就好啦!

2. 先把高汤煮滚,加一点点盐或者鱼露调味。

3. 锅里热上1大匙油,加入姜蒜蓉爆香,把香菇和肉炒熟。我家里刚巧没有了香菇,就用了鲜菇。

4. 另外一口锅子里煮滚水,把面线烫烫,捞起摆到碗里。把鸡肉香菇和鸡蛋摆到面上,注入高汤。加点葱油和葱酥。


1. Here is my 2 cents on making fried shallot and oil in small quantity. Slice two shallots into thin slices, mix with 1 tsp oil, microwave it for 1 minute, take it out, briefly mix it with a spoon, repeat the same process twice until shallot become golden brown and fragrant.

2. My microwave needs a total of 2 minutes 45 seconds to get a perfect golden brown fried shallot. You ay want to check a few times to find the best duration on yours.

3. In a heavy bottom cookware, bring stock to boil, season with salt or fish sauce, keep it boiling.

4. In a wok/pan, add about 2 tsp oil, stir in ginger garlic paste, when fragrant, add marinated chicken and mushroom, cook for 3-5 minutes or until cooked.

5. Bring a pot of water to boil, cook the Mee Sua (Noodle) briefly, place it on a bowl.

6. Place chicken and mushroom over noodle. Pour in piping hot stock. Garnish with Fried shallot and oil and chopped spring onion.

I wish for world peace and everyone's health and safety!
