Garlic Beef Noodle Bowls – an Asian style noodle bowl with lots of garlic, that is ready in just minutes! Great for busy nights.

Making Asian Recipes at home are probably some of my favorite. It is such a great way to get the restaurant flavor, but less salty and using the quality ingredients that know and love.

These Beef Noodle Bowls are one of those that you can get on the table in just 15 minutes any night of the week. and you can mix up the protein to whatever your family likes. Or add lots of veggies to make it even more filling and better for you.

Noodle bowls are an easy way to get dinner on the table, and load them up with whatever you like! Often times noodle bowls have an Asian twist, like this one with a soy sauce based sauce. But it doesn’t have to. You really can mix it up and make it what you want.

  • Olive Oil
  • Skirt Steak or Flank Steak
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Soy Sauce
  • Brown Sugar
  • Sesame Oil

How To Make Garlic Beef Noodle Bowls

Be sure to scroll to the bottom of the post for the FULL PRINTABLE recipe card.

  1. Start by cooking whatever noodles you want to use according to package directions.
  2. In a small bowl or liquid measuring cup mix together brown sugar, soy sauce, and sesame oil. Stir until well combined and then set aside until you are ready to use it.
  3. Heat oil over high heat in a large skillet. Once it is hot, add the beef strips. Cook the beef for 2-3 minutes, until it is browned, but not cooked through.
  4. Add garlic and ginger to the pan, cook for 1 minute until you can just start to smell them. You want to be careful not to let them burn.
  5. Now you mix in the soy sauce mixture to the pan and bring it to a simmer. Let it cook for about 3-5 minutes until sauce slightly thickens.
  6. Add cooked noodles to the pan and stir until everything is well coated.
  7. Sprinkle green onions and sesame seeds over the pan to serve.

What Noodles Do I Use

What noodles you use, is pretty much up to you. I used udon noodles, but some people comment they look like worms and can’t do it.

  • Lo Mein Noodles
  • Linguine
  • Spaghetti
  • Egg Noodles
  • Udon Noodles

Or pretty much any other noodle that you like will work.

I love dinner that is ready in minutes. These garlic beef noodle bowls come together in about 15 minutes, which is perfect for busy weeknights. Slicing the beef takes the most amount of time. Depending on the noodles you use, they can be done in anything from 2-10 minutes.

Can I Add Vegetables

Absolutely! Veggies are a great thing to add to turn this into almost a stir-fry noodle bowl. You really can use anything you like. They will all work.

  • Bell Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Snow Peas
  • Carrots

    1. I always find that the meat is always tough in these kind of recipes and I’m wondering if I should be velveting it with baking soda previous to cooking it?

      1. I have never done that, but make sure you slice against the grain when you cut your meat. That will help make it more tender.
