Gravy Beef Hor Fun

Beef Hor Fun is probably one of the more popular types sold at hawker centres around the island, but you can also find it made with so many other meats too: chicken, pork and seafood. I like to add extra vegetables to my hor fan. And serve it with preserved chillies.

If you do not have preserved chillies, you can always make some at home with big red or green chilli (cut them), rice vinegar and some sugar. Mix well in a bottle and you can keep it in your fridge.
