Asian Beef Noodle Bowl

July 26, 2011

The best noodle bowl I ever ate was in Geneva, Switzerland. No joke. This local, no frills Asian restaurant served a heaping bowl of fresh ingredients all swirling together in incredible sweet and sour flavors. This recipe is my attempt to re-create that dish at home. And it worked! My husband devoured the meal exclaiming “this tastes just like that restaurant!” Success :) This recipe makes 3 large servings.

Asian Marinated Flank Steak, sliced thin (Recipe listed separately on this site)
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
5 Tablespoons fresh lime juice (do not use bottled)
3/4 cup soy sauce
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons Asian fish sauce
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
2 small fresh red Thai chilies (or Serrano chilies), seeded and minced
4 scallions, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro, chopped
1 small seedless cucumber, peeled and diced
2 Tablespoons fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup peanuts, ground
8 oz. thin spaghetti


  • Prepare Asian Marinated Flank Steak as directed. Slice into thin pieces, against the grain. Set aside.
