Egg Noodles with Spicy Asian Beef

Servings 6 servings


  • 1 1/2 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 pounds 95% lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 1/2 cups diced carrots
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tablespoon grated gingerroot
  • 18 ounces egg noodles cooked
  • 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro


  • DO-AHEAD TIP: Cook egg noodles according to package directions.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together first 5 ingredients (broth through crushed red pepper flakes).
  • Cook and crumble ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat until browned, about 5 minutes. Add green onions, carrot, garlic and gingerroot; cook for 3 minutes. Add broth mixture and cook until reduced just a tad.
  • Add cooked noodles and toss to evenly coat with sauce. (Stir in a few tablespoons of pasta water, if needed, to keep pasta “saucy”.)
  • Garnish each serving with chopped cilantro.


SERVING SUGGESTION: Serve stir-fried zucchini, yellow squash and snow peas on the side.
VEGETARIAN: Use TVP crumbles instead of beef and vegetable broth instead of beef broth.
KOSHER: Make sure ground beef is certified kosher.
GLUTEN-FREE: Make sure broth and soy sauce are gluten-free. Use gluten-free noodles.
