Ever since I was in New York last month and enjoyed a bowl of ramen at Momosan, I have been craving Asian noodles. I’m not talking the 25 cent packages of ramen here, I’m talking delicious and flavorful bowls of goodness. Which seriously, if you’re in NYC any time soon, head to Momosan. Since I haven’t been able to master a delicious broth for ramen as of yet, I decided to just stir fry my udon noodles and make Beef Stir Fry Noodles.
I love the term ‘stir fry’ when it comes to a lot of things because you can essentially throw any protein and veggies together and make an amazing meal. This dish is actually really simple and uses a tasty marinade on flank steak and a simple combination of cabbage and red peppers to finish off the meal. This meal is super easy for a weeknight family meal and perfect for leftovers.
