Cozy Taiwanese beef noodle soup that has been slow simmered with tons of aromatics to let all those flavors really develop. Put a large pot on this weekend and enjoy the comfiest soup for dinner!
Forever in LOVE. 🙋🏻
Slow simmered beef broth with aromatics, spices, like star anise and fennel, thick and chewy noodles, tender baby bok choy, and medallions beef that are cooked to the point where they just start falling apart. We’ll topping it all off with a generous sprinkle of scallions, a dollop of hot chili oil if you’re into that sort of thing, and slurp it all up with one of those large porcelain spoons that were invented for the sole purpose of slurping. It’s soothing as it goes down with just a baby kick of heat at the end. You can tell it’s been slow simmered from the moment it touches your lips. The aromatics warm all your scenes. It’s a big fuzzy blanket for your soul. Food magic that’s 1000% addicting.
Be still, my beating heart. ♥️
This ladies and gentlemen is that soup. You know the one i’m ALWAYS going on and on about from my favorite restaurant in chinatown. The one i’m embarrassed to recount how many times has been consumed. It’s such an addiction that it’s a standing item on our order from now until forever. If we’re going to Uyghur Bistro, this soup is happening without a doubt, every single time.
And now that i’ve [finally] cracked it, my beloved beef noodle soup is going to be enjoyed in between those trips to our favorite restaurant, which for a while was somewhere in the ballpark of once a week. Shh. Forget I said that, we’re not getting into such things.
I usually like to reserve these sort of, more involved recipes towards the end of the week because we like to do more quick and easy dinners weeknights around here but friends. Don’t be intimidated by this recipe. I can honestly say, I was terrified enough for the both of us and i’m coming out of it and telling you this one is NOT hard. It just requires some slow simmering so save it for the weekend and enjoy it with a good flick on in the background while you slurp up these noodles. If you are into rich flavored broth, meaty, noodle slurping situations, let me be your beef noodle soup guide and assure you this one is for the forever files.
I need to apologize to you right now because once you make this, they will be asking for it all the time. So i’m sorry but hey, at least theres big bowls of hearty beef noodle soup in your future.
Slurp till you… burp?
Gah this soup makes me loopy.
Before we get into this recipe I want to say I make no claims of authenticity. This beef noodle soup is simply based off of one version of the soup, what was visually present in my bowl, and the tidbits of information I was able to gather (read: squeeze out) while questioning the staff on the sly. I’m pretty sure they’ve got a picture of me in the kitchen hunched over a bowl with the words ‘don’t answer her beef noodle soup enquiries’ written in all caps with a sharpie.

And that’s about it. I can sense the hesitation from the other side of the screen, but friends, I wouldn’t do you wrong.
It’s seriously an amazing bowl of soup!
