  | Asymmetry | Cooking | Udon-Beef Noodle Bowl |



Kind of a redundant recipe title, udon is a noodle....

8 oz. uncooked udon noodles or spaghetti if you live in a deprived area
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 14 1/2-oz. cans beef broth
3 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce (Note: the liquid reduces so you really don't want the full-strength salt kind)
3 Tbsp sake or dry sherry
1 Tbsp honey
Cooking spray
2 c sliced shiitake mushroom caps (about 4 oz.)
1/2 c thinly sliced carrot
8 oz. top round, thinly sliced
2/4 c diagonally sliced green onions
1 6-oz. bag prewashed baby spinach


  1. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain.
  2. Place garlic, red pepper, and broth in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer ten minutes.
  3. Combine soy sauce, sake, and honey in a small bowl, and stir with a whisk.
  4. Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and carrot, and cook 2 minutes.
  5. Stir in soy sauce mixture and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly.
  6. Add vegetable mixture to broth. Stir in beef, cook 2 minutes or until it loses its pink color.
  7. Stir in noodles, green onions, and spinach, cook 30 seconds or until spinach wilts slightly.
