Homemade Spicy Beef Noodle Bowls

I like a challenge. Not just in cooking (or baking), but in general. It’s a good motivator to create, it pushes you to make something your own.  In this case it is noodle bowls.  I had one for lunch last week, and it was delicious. A medley of flavors, from chunks of tender beef, a flavorful broth, and just enough vegetables to make it a satisfying meal.  So I decided that I wanted to make my own version over the weekend, and I came up with these Homemade Spicy Beef Noodle Bowls.  The possibilities are endless, you can add broccoli, endive, red chilies, take out the beef to make it vegetarian, or add chicken or shrimp to your liking. Only cook the noodles to al dente, that way they can finish off in the delicious broth.

Homemade Spicy Beef Noodle Bowls
  • ¾ package Asian noodles (or a thick noodle like fettuccine) cooked to al dente (chewy)
  • 1 T vegetable oil for pan
  • 1 lb top sirloin, cut into bite-sized chunks
  • 3 T peanut sauce (I used TJ's peanut satay sauce)
  • 2 qt beef broth or stock
  • 1 cup shredded broccoli slaw mix
  • 1 cup snap peas
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • ½ cup sliced green onions (use both greens and whites)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • crushed red peppers to taste (I used 1 T)
  1. Cook noodles and set aside
  2. In dutch oven or heavy skillet on medium high heat, heat oil
  3. Once hot, add beef to pan, cooking for 3 minutes
  4. Add peanut sauce and continue to cook for additional 2 minutes
  5. Add beef broth and vegetables to pan, stirring to combine
  6. Turn heat down to medium and add noodles (I suggest halving the noodles for easy slurping)
  7. Let simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes or until noodles are nice and done and broth is simmering
  8. Serve warm
  9. Leftovers can be kept in fridge for three days or frozen once cooled for a month
