Oyster Sauce Beef On Pan Fried Noodles

A popular traditional dish; representing long life. Normally served wet, with a light gravy over  noodles. I like the more crisp, sometimes borderline burnt pan fried noodles. It still absorbs the gravy and all its flavor. This is a pretty basic recipe, feel free to add your favorite green vegetable (broccoli, choi sum, bok choy, kai choy, won bok).
