Thai Beef Noodle Bowl – Pasta of the Month

It’s another National food day – National Noodle Day.  No one seems to know where this National day came from, but it’s a perfect day to share the Pasta of the month!


I love noodles – all noodles – and I love simple, one dish dinners too!  Here is one that uses the tasty dragon peppers I grew this year (and yes they are hot!  A type of cayenne – But you can use easy to find Thai chilies too).  It’s easy, delicious and perfect for a cold fall night!

What you need:


  • ¾ pound of beef
  • ½ teaspoon coriander seeds
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic (fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger (fresh)
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 Thai chili pepper, fresh , minced
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons cold water


  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 Thai chili, minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, minced
  • salt to taste
  • 2 cups of Asian mushrooms (I used a combination of oyster and mitaki)
  • 2 green onions
  • 12 snow pea pods
  • 2 cups baby bok choy
  • 2 cups of dry rice noodles (I used a tall 2 cup measuring cup so they were still long)

How to Do it:

Slice the beef thin.  Place in a bowl and mix well with all the marinade ingredients.  Allow to sit at room temperature for 3 to 6 hours.

Add the first five ingredients for the soup to a large pot.  Simmer the broth until the flavors are melded, about 45 minutes to an hour.

In the meantime, add the beef to a hot skillet and cook lightly until browned.


Place ¼ of the vegetables into 4 different bowls.


Cook the noodles in the broth.

Place ¼ of the beef into each of the bowls.

Divide the noodles into each bowl, then bring the broth to a hard boil.


Pour the boiling broth over the vegetables, beef and noodles.  Allow to cool slightly, then serve hot.


Serves 4
