My son loves udon – he loves it swimming in savoury hot broth, and he loves it when I do a quick stir-fry with fresh crunchy vegetables (pictured above). Needless to say, udon noodles is something I must always have in the freezer for ’emergency’ – eg no IDEA what to cook, no other INGREDIENTS to work with, no MOOD to cook something more complicated (a.k.a. lazy days). I too love this Yaki udon dish, and when I do cook it, there usually isn’t any leftovers. I’m sure you’ll love it too!
Widely regarded as the National Dish of Taiwan, Taiwanese Beef Noodles is a must-try for visitors to the popular tourist destination. I have personally been to Taiwan 5 times and there are a few items on my “must-eat” list each time – Oyster Vermicelli, Fried Chicken Chop, Steamed Salted Chicken, Tempura （甜不辣）and, of course, Beef Noodles. I always gain a few pounds after a trip to Taiwan because the variety of delicious foods there is never-ending and affordable, it’s like I’m forever eating while there, or thinking about what to eat next when I’m not.
Red Braised Beef Noodles is a dish that I have cooked a few times and here is the recipe for the tweaked version that I feel is yummiest and also the easiest to make.
Noodles can NOT be made any simpler and any more delicious. This idiot proof recipe for black sauce noodles with fried garlic and spring onions is my go-to recipe for a quick lunch on busy days when there are a butt-load of chores to be done and, dirty and hungry children to clean and feed, or on lazy days when all I want to do is anything that does not result in me slaving over the stove with sweat dripping down my forehead. It is unbelievably quick (all you need is 10 minutes or less!), made with only 3 main ingredients, mad simple and insanely yummy.
On days when my fridge is empty and I have yet to grab groceries for the week, I will ask my husband to whip up
his famous (well, famous in our home, anyway) garlic butter noodles. The deliciousness in this dish is due to the combination of sauces and the heavenly fragrance of the garlic cooking in butter, you will be salivating even before the noodles hit the sauce.
