Asian Beef Pasta with Pea Pods and Ginger

Edited by Timbuktu, Maria, Neo Mann, Charmed and 5 others

Asian cuisine often includes dim sum and noodles (pasta), among others. Nowadays, the term "Asian fusion" is widely used to describe the culinary exploration of cross cultural Asian traditions -- Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Thai, Indian and a lot more. Usually, Asian cooking consists of a complete meal with rice, vegetables, seafood, and meat dishes. In China, Peking Duck is one of their national foods, while in Japan a popular dish would be Sushi. Tikka is a favorite in the southeast part of Asia, Tom Yum in Thailand, and Satay is also popular among Southeast Asian countries. But the Asians' love for pastas can't be denied. A week without a pasta dish served in the dining table would probably seem incomplete. Noodles are staple foods that are widely loved all over Asia. Pasta is normally made from flour and comes in various shapes.
