Published January 20, 2010 by Mary Jane

Hello Everyone, I’m continuing on with my Taiwanese dishes… well, Taiwanese dumplings goes extremely well with beef noodle soup. Taiwanese beef noodle soup is one of my favourite dishes and it’s so easy to make…here’s the recipes… ๐Ÿ™‚

Taiwanese Beef Noodle Soup

500g beef briskets
1 x small piece of ginger
2 or 3 chinese 5 star spice
2 or 3 cloves of garlic
2 or 3 chillies
3 x table spoon of Soya sauce
1 x packet of noodles
some coriander or spring onions (optional)

1. For the beef briskets, you can also buy other beef cuts just make sure they have some sort of fats on them that’s what makes the soup taste good ๐Ÿ™‚ anyways, dice them into cubes. Heat up the pan with oil, mince the garlic, sliced the ginger into large pieces and chopped the chillies and chuck these into the pan along with the five star spices (you can get this chinese five star spices from any Asian grocery stores – it has a strong aroma if you don’t like it you can miss this out it’s optional). So stir fry the garlic and chili along with the chinese five spice and ginger until you can smell the strong aroma and throw in the beef pieces and stir fry it until it’s brown and add in some soya sauce continue to stir fry for a few minutes and pour in some boiling water – you can add more soya sauce if you would like the soup to be darker, adjust according to your preferences.
2. Now turn down the fire to simmer the soup for about 1/2 hour – 45 minutes until the meat is tender
3. Boil the noodles and drain it and put them into a bowl and add the beef soup and there you have it traditional taiwanese beef noodle soup to garnish add some coriander or chopped spring onions – they go really well with beef
4. For dipping sauces simply add soya sauce and cut chillies or chilli paste and you’re laughing!!
