12"or 14" deep dutch oven
2 cups soy sauce
4-6 cups water
1 1/2 -2 cups sugar
Combine the sauce ingredients and adjust to taste. You don't want it too strong or sweet.
Rice sticks or bean threads, soaked in water until softened (In a pinch you can use ramen noodles without the seasoning packet)
Chinese cabbage (Napa cabbage), torn
Green onions, sliced into strips lengthwise
Yellow onions, quartered
4 lb. sirloin tip roast, sliced thin.
Heat some oil in a deep dutch oven over a full spread of coals. Add roast and cook in batches. Place vegetables and noodles in the dutch oven (It should be really full). Cover with sauce. Move about 1/4 of the coals from the bottom to the top and simmer until everything is tender. Serve with rice.
The Finished Product
Since this has been a tradition in our family forever, you can guess how good it is. It is one of my favorite meals, bar none. The only draw back to this meal is that it is expensive and time consuming. But for a once a year celebration I can't complain. The onions are my favorite part so I always make a ton of them. Grade A.
