Ingredients for Asian Beef Noodle:
3/4 cup julienned carrots
1/2 cup diced onion
1/3 cup chopped green onion (aka spring onion)
3 cloves minced garlic
3 cups coarsely chopped green cabbage (or bok choy, napa – whatever you like)
1 1/2 cups grilled steak (chopped into bite sized pieces)
10 oz. dry linguine noodles
1/4 – 1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp or more to taste Sriracha
black pepper to taste
sesame seeds to taste
canola oil for cooking
What’s your beef?
Boil noodles and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
Cut top sirloin or similar steak into thin(ish) strips. Season with a small amount of olive oil, black pepper, cayenne pepper and dash of salt.
Grill steak over high heat. About 3 minutes (medium-rare). Remove from heat and wrap in aluminum foil. Set aside. (Don’t worry if you like your steak more well-done – it will continue to cook in the foil and when added to the noodles.)
When steak has cooled, slice into bite sized chunky chunks. Set aside.
Scramble 2 eggs in 1 tsp canola oil. Add a few cracks of black pepper to eggs. Cook till slightly browned. Remove from pan.
Saute onion, carrots and green onion in 1 tsp canola oil. Season with black pepper. Remove from pan.
Heat 1 tbsp. canola oil in pan. Add noodles to medium-hot saute pan. Stir-fry noodles for several minutes allowing noodles to de-glaze (de-coat) all the flavorful bits of onion/egg.
Sprinkle with soy sauce, 1 tbsp butter and toss.
Add a dose of Asian hot sauce and keep tossing.
Incorporate fresh cabbage.
Add back the egg, sauteed vegetables and minced garlic.
Add chopped grilled steak.
Finish with a dash of soy sauce. Toss, toss, toss.
Serve with steamed broccoli. And Betty loves a sprinkle of sesame seeds!
This dish can be made without steak, or you can substitute with chicken, pork or shrimp.
This recipe serves four. For easiest clean-up, use the same pot to boil the noodles, scramble eggs, saute veggies and stir-fry noodles. A one pot meal? Now that’s a novel idea…

Hey Charlotte! Hot wings recipe? How fun! I’d love to hear about that one! Let me know how the Beefy Noodle turns out ;)
i watched the Fajquito video on yahoo thinking it was one of the ridiculous spoofs or wanna-be “jackass” clips but I was pleasantly surprised…..a culinary instructional video with a twist…a sexy and humorous teacher/narrator that creatively shows how to make a delicious mexican fare:)……awesome!
Hello Ms. Betty, I tried the Mac n’ Cheese recipie after barhopping a few nights ago and was quite pleased – and so were my friends – but I had to know: why do you instruct to rinse the noodles? That washes off a gret deal of the pasta’s flavor and vitamins.

Hi Sebs! Thank you so much for trying my recipes and watching my silly videos! That makes my day ;)
To your question!
I usually rinse the hot noodles so they cool faster, stop cooking and don’t stick together…. Most Asian recipes call for cold noodles or rice before the pan frying, so I guess you could cook the noodles then chill em’ down instead of rinsing:)
It’s good to know I am rinsing away vitamins… I did not know that!
Thanks for stopping by the site, Sebs! It’s great to hear from you!
Please let me know if you have any more questions… I am happy to help! And if you have any requests or ideas for me… bring em on!

I always like eating and preparing noodles. Preparing noodles is very easy and is a lot less time consuming compared to other dishes. I didn’t know how to cook noodles before so my only option was to eat instant noodles or eat at a restaurant. Dining out and eating noodles is good but there are times that I am just too busy. Instant noodles are delicious too but still quite different compared to noodles served at restaurants. This made me decide to learn how to cook noodles at home and here goes the recipes…
