Beef Noodle Bowl

Updated: Aug 20, 2020

I am a huge fan of noodle bowls, but authentic Asian broths can take some time to put together. So with a tweak here and a tweak there I have this beauty. If you enjoy light, salty broths, with hints of smoked meats and very distinct and amazing flavors of spices and veges coming together, get your saucepan and gather round. I have something I'd really like to share with you. Here's my recipe.


1/2 inch Beef Steak

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 Garlic Powder

1/2 tsp Chili Powder

1/4 tsp White Pepper

1 tsp dried Basil

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil

4 tbsp Water

1 pk Rice Noodles

1 medium Zucchini (spiralized)

1 small Carrot (spiralized)

3 bundles Bok Choy


1 large Onion sliced in half

1 bulb Garlic sliced in half

1 stick Cinnamon

4 Star Anise

1 tsp crushed Peppercorns

1 dried Chili Pepper

2 tbsp Vegetable Oil

2 tbsp Sesame Oil

1 tbsp Dark Soy Sauce

1 small bundle Celery

1 small bundle Chive

3-4 Smoked Turkey Bones (or any smoked meat of your choice)

16 cups Water

Salt to taste


●To beef add, paprika, chili powder, salt, white pepper and basil. Rub well coating beef and allow to marinate for 20-30 mins

●To a large saucepan on medium heat add vegetable oil and sesame oil, allow oil to heat up for a few secs and then add star anise, cinnamon stick, garlic, onion, peppercorns, chili and toss allow to cook for 5 mins until onion and garlic begin to become golden and fragrant.

●Add water and soy sauce to saucepan, stir well.

●Add chive, celery and smoked bones. Add salt to taste.

●Cover with lid and allow to simmer on medium heat for an hour.

●While broth is simmering using medium sized skillet add vegetable oil on medium to high heat and place beef in after heating up oil for several seconds.

●Sear beef on both sides then add 4 tbsp water and allow beef to cook on a low heat covered with lid for 8-10 mins. Remove from heat and allow to rest for 5 mins before slicing against the grain.

●In the skillet with liquid from beef first saute carrots and zucchini for 3-5 min, remove from skillet and saute bok choy for 5 mins.

●In a large bowl add rice noodles and cover with hot water allow noodles to sit in water for 4-5 until noodles are tender to bite and set aside.

●Turn of broth when finished simmering and using metal fine mesh sieve (strainer) pour broth into a medium sized sauce pan or bowl.

●To a bowl add rice noodle, zucchini and carrots, bok choy, beef and top with chopped chives if you so desire....ladle in broth and enjoyyyyyyyyyyyy.
